No specifics to give: Probiotics is known to help restore normal bacterial flora of intestines if being altered by antibiotic use or poor lifestyle. Its recommended dose is arbitrary so you may take it as advised usually with or before meals from the Company-but at most double it up and see since individual tolerance widely varies among people. But still remember healthy lifestyle remains the foundation of all care.
