Bifilac Pre And Probiotic Capsule
Is it ok to take vaginal probiotic capsules (doderlein's bacillus) for maintenance of vaginal health for 7 days, together with oral probiotic capsules?
Probiotics, by definition, are beneficial bacteria that live in our intestinal tract to help us maintain health intestines and colon. There are several species of these bacteria that are helpful to us including lactobacillus acidophilus. The meats we eat contain antibiotics that kill our natural bacteria that reside in our gut. Today, you will replace these ...Read more
CSA and OATS tests show high levels of lactobacillus in small intestine. and colon, low bifido in colon. Should i take probiotics with lactobacillus?
Any symptoms?: What do you expect the probiotics to do for you. There is little objective evidence for the usefulness of such treatments. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
What's the difference between taking a probiotic in pill form, and consuming fermented foods high in probiotics like kefir?
Pro mean with: and bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics (which are sometimes needed) they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. Pros and fermented foods have similar qualities but look for higher number of strains in pros rather than higher amounts. They interact. ...Read more
When replenishing good bacteria during/after antibiotics, which is better -- probiotic supplements or increasing intake of yogurt, kefir, etc.?
Little difference: Probiotics have had a lot of good press in recent years, but scientific proof behind them is weak. Yogurt or kefir probably will have no effect; theie bacteria do not survive in human intestines. None of these will do any harm; use whatever works best for you. But you don't need to do much; normal bacteria will repopulate naturally in a few weeks, with no special treatment. ...Read more

Is probiotics a goodthing to takeafter taking doxycycline?I developed gastritis n GERD.Heard probiotics repopulates bacteria.Any bad probiotic effects
Probiotics: Most people don't need probiotics after taking a course of antibiotics, since the normal bacterial flora of the gut repopulates rapidly after stopping antibiotics. If you have a history of C. difficile, it may be useful to take probiotics, however. Otherwise, studies do not support their routine use. Having said that, there are not usually many side effects, if you do decide to try them. Good luck ...Read more

Hey i'm taking gnc 10 bilion probiotic complex becoz yeast overgrowth.is taking gnc 25 bilion or 50 bilion is for fast recovery from candida overgrowt?
No: That cannot be assumed to be true, because almost NONE of the probiotic supplements have scientific studies proving a particular supplement at particular doses can lead to "fast" recovery from a particular disease. "Yeast overgrowth" is very vague, because it does not say HOW MUCH overgrowth, nor even WHERE in the body the overgrowth is, or which TYPE of yeast. Usually, supplements are "untested". ...Read more
Sure: Probiotics are just collections of bacteria and the various bacteria do not interact with each other. You can take as many different types as you wish with no negative effects. But there is no evidence that a single probiotic, let alone several at once, cure any specific GI problems. As they are harmless, the only negative effect of taking them is to your pocketbook. ...Read more
What probiotic is good for candida yeast gnc 50 ultra 50 probiotic complex or gnc multi strain probiotic conplex 10 billion cfus ? Plz suggest me thx.
Probably won't help: No probiotic is likely to be effective in treating a yeast infection. If that's what you have, you need treatment with a proper anti-yeast antibiotic. However, if you're talking about "systemic" candidasis, it's an urban myth; there is no such thing, and no treatment makes any difference. Discuss with a scientifically trained physician. Good luck! ...Read more
Is probiotic powder effective?Is buttermilk or curd a probiotic?Any natural probiotics?Doc has asked me to take probiotics but need a reliable brand
Perhaps, marketing: yet few clinical trials, little reliable data. Like many OTC products, labels does not even match the contents. While some data about probiotic benefits with clostridium difficile & ulcerative colitis exists, few reliable brands. Thus natural fermented products likely a better option for now. Study the: "Human Microbiome Project" for insights; >another decade to sort out some of the complexity. ...Read more
Not good at swallowing large capsules so opened my Doxycycline & put the mixture into vegan yogurt. Will the calcium in vegan yogurt prevent effects?
Advice from internet: "If you cannot swallow the capsule whole, you may open it and sprinkle the contents over a spoonful of applesauce. Do not use hot applesauce. Mix the medicine with the applesauce and swallow the mixture right away, followed by a glass of water. Do not crush or chew the medicine before swallowing. Do not store the mixture for future use."

Probiotics : Have shown mixed results in studies but pills or drinks like yakult have lactobacillus which can help restore the natural flora of the GI tract. Some people prefer to substitute yogurt or other lactobacillus containing foods for probiotic foods or decrease the amount of the probiotic pill and take a combination of lactobacillus food plus probiotic pill. ...Read more

What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.
Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more
