A 18-year-old member asked:

Can you take two different brands of probiotics everyday such as align and acidophilus?

Should be OK: One recommendation for dosing probiotics is to take them three to four times daily, with the total daily dose between 1 billion to 10 billion cfu (medscape). It seems many studies were done with lactobacillus, but other strains have also shown to be helpful either alone or in combination with each other.

Probiotics: are best taken 30 minutes prior to a meal or with a meal that has some fat content. Peace and good health. Dr. Ohira brand is a good one. Look for multiple strains in the product rather than the amount of each strain or taking several products.
