My husband has diverticulosis and is on a strict diet with fiber pills and lots of yogurt that he hates. He has multiple health issues on top of the diverticulosis and suffered a few episodes of *bleeding out* about three years back. We're talking SERIOUS stuff where he was in the hospital. Nobody could figure out how to help him. So I found this form of acidophilus and started him out on one pill a day. I cannot load him up on too many pills because I have to see the effects of what happens to him as he is on multiple prescription medications for various things (heart, thyroid, glaucoma, cholesterol, etc). The effects were IMMEDIATE. He's been on these for three years now along with myself and has not had one diverticulosis attack nor any bleeding out (two separate things). He is able to eat pretty much what he wants so if he is *bad* and it's something not on his strict list, it has no effect. These pills are a god send for him.
