An article says, jarrow n acetyl glucosamine 750mg, jarrow glucosamine hci mega 1000mg, jarrow niainamide cure fructose malabsorption. Is it possible

There's no research on this but it seems possible. However, on stopping it recurred. ...Read more

Probiotics gives lactobacillus acidophillus & bifidobacterium. Whey: beta lactoglobulin & alpha lactalbumin. Can both provide similar benefits?

No: Probiotics and whey provide different benefits. They both have "lacto" in their names, which may be the source of your confusion. Lacto means related to milk. Lactobacillus is a bacteria that can grow in dairy products. Whey is the thin, clear liquid that is left when milk has curdled; it is high in protein. Probiotics are good for intestinal health.
