I've tried VSL-DS for my pouch and it didn't really help. The study that they refer to that had good results for pouches had less than 10 people (if I correctly recall).
My GI likes Florastor and Culturelle together, he said that combined that it is a broad spectrum quality probiotic. I find that it works pretty well with my pouch, I still need Stelara.
Right now Costco has great prices on Probiotics, New Years special.
