Lactobacillus Acidophilus Side Effects
What yogurts have lactobacillus acidophilus with no added sugars? Need to know! please help! if possible give me several o the brands!
Plain organic yogurt: Most yogurts have lots of added sugar; it is best to get plain yogurt- you can add fresh fruit on your own if you wish. I strongly advise organic yogurt or else it is probably made from cows fed gmo corn which is best avoided. Some of the best brands are stonyfield farms, wallaby and straus family creamery. ...Read more
Yes,but not together: The only prescriptions that might interfere with acidophilus are antibiotics, but being on antibiotics is when we need probiotics the most! if on antibiotics take a high potency probiotic, at least 20 billion, and take at least a couple hours away from antibiotics. I also advise taking sacchromyces boulardii, a probiotic yeast, if you are on antibiotics- this can be taken at the same time. ...Read more
Stonyfield,Culturele: If you really want the benefits of lactobacillus acidophilus i advise taking it as a supplement, as most yogurts have little if any live cultures. Stonyfield farms is one brand that does have live cultures. For supplements good brands include culturelle, bio-k+, primal defense, dr. Ohirra's & probiotic pearls. See http://www.Probiotic-info.Com/probiotic-supplements-compared/ for more info. ...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. Good brushing habits and smart eating habits like minimizing ones refined sugar consumption are the best line of defense against developing cavities. Also, a regular dental check up and Fluoride treatment can help keep decay at bay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I take Lactobacillus Acidophilus with Sertraline? I believe that they can affect the seratonin levels or something. I'm on 100mg per day.
Sertraline with ProB: Yes. Sertraline elevates serotonin in nervous system and GI tract. Acidophilus . elevates serotonin production in GI tract. Both considered healthful and important by experts. So, proceed. Add probiotic slowly. Only risk - is serotonin syndrome, which includes nausea, dizziness, weakness -- but which is highly unlikely. Best wishes. Eat well. Exercise. Minimize simple carbs. ...Read more
What would cause low lactobacillus acidophilus levels in urine? Havnt been on antibiotics since july. Could yeast tablets like Azo cause levl to drop?
Stool contamination: Normally there are no lactobacilli in the urine. If there are low levels in a stool sample that could be due to antibiotics. If you are eating 6 servings of organic fresh vegetables and 1 apple a day and eating a little yogurt each day you should have good bacteria in your GI tract. Cystectomy is very unusual at age 13. Dilitation and curettage could introduce stool bacteria into urine. ...Read more
My doctor said I have a pH imbalance, which is why I have this yeast infection.So iam using lactobacillus acidophilus caplets.How long will it take to see results?When will my yeast infection go away?
Need more work: Ph is only part of problem. Most women with recurrent yeast have the source of this in the intestines. Go to a4m. Com and use doctor locator to find a functional medicine doc near you to help evaluate and treat gut for yeast. Until this is fixed these will recur.

Can my pregnant wife take lactobacillus acidolphus to help treat her slow digestion and constant nausea?
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. Whey is primarily a protein source. ...Read more
I take pletal. The only side effect i seem to have is gas (very embarassing). Is there anything i can do to rid of gas? I have been taking acidophilus for the problem I am having with gas caused by taking pletal for many years. However, it really doesn't
You : You can consider changing the time of day that you take it, although first check with your doctor. First, keep a diary of what time you take it, and how closely you ate when taking it and what you ate. Then see if there is a pattern. You can try to notice if high fiber foods (vegetables etc) seem to set off your indigestion more. Also try to notice if certain beverages are making it worse. You can also try to notice if it is worse if you are constipated, then aggressively treat the constipation if so (with stool softeners or suppositories). ...Read more

It can be: beneficial.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Better and more natural way would be to take full fat plain yogurt ( you can add fruits or chopped cucumber and garlic) a few times a week for food and other fermented foods. Make sure that the fermented foods that you buy are not pasteurized after the fermentation. It is hard to get such foods. therefore I do suggest to my patients to prepare their own yogurt, pickles,…… Best, Siranush Cholakian ...Read more
