Ecoflora Probiotic Capsules Substitute
Probiotics, by definition, are beneficial bacteria that live in our intestinal tract to help us maintain health intestines and colon.

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

Study the: "Human Microbiome Project" for insights; >another decade to sort out some of the complexity. ...Read more
Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?
Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime. Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/ and https://www.multivitaminguide.org/best-multivitamin.html ...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
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

Probably not: The main cavity causing bacteria is streptococcus mutans. They take in sugars from our diet and convert it to acid which in turn, eats away at the enamel of teeth.

Is it ok to take vaginal probiotic capsules (doderlein's bacillus) for maintenance of vaginal health for 7 days, together with oral probiotic capsules?
No info: There is no info on the effect of oregano oil on probiotics but intuitively one would think not. If you are concerned about potential effect then it would make sense to temporally separate the two products by taking each well away from the other. ...Read more
Probiotic Yogurt: is like a drop in the ocean for gerd and other conditions. Use a probiotic from the health food store. Dr. Ohira's is a good brand. In general, look for a VARIETY of strains in the product rather than highest numbers in terms of strength. DGL is another good product but no space left. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Safe and beneficial: The form of streptococcus in many probiotics (and yogurts) is streptococcus thermophilus, considered a friendly bacteria that is a normal part of healthy intestinal flora. This is a very different strain of strep than pathogenic alpha and beta-hemolytic streptococci that cause infections. See http://www.probiotic.org/streptococcus-thermophilus.htm ...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
