Wrong diagnosis?: Could your symptoms reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut.

There is no best!: Better to take capsules with high count bacteria (10 billion of more), and ones with more strains of good bacteria (B10- or more). More convenient and better than drinks. Save your money! But they will not help gain weight!
