Who takes VSL#3 and if you do what do you mix it in? Whats the best thing to mix it in? I do it in apple sauce and it still is sometimes sour 9so i add honey). Im kinda getting tired of applesauce every day so i would like some new stuff to mix it in that tastes good!
Background info:
9 colazal (mylan) a day (3 in the morning, 3 in the afternoon, and 3 at night)
3 Iron a day (1 in the morning...)
Extra stuff: lots of probiotics (sustenex, culterelle, florastor one of each a day) 2 tumerics a day 1 fish oil a day  1 or more VSL#3 (probiotic) a day 1 scoop of Muscle Armor (has anti inflamatory stuff called juven) 1 or 2 Metamucil (cookie?) a day
For the Beatles fans: Its a "LONG AND WINDING ROAD" but you just gotta "LET IT BE" you may need some "HELP" but it will be worth it in "THE END"!!!!

I take a capsule form of VSL #3 that doesn't have as many bacteria but you can just take two of them.

When I had it for awhile, I would mix it into applesauce. It tastes really bad in drinks so try to stick with semisolid stuff.
