Doctor insights on:
Probiotic: Probiotics are good bacteria that help your digestive process as well as strengthen your immune system. When you are on antibiotics you reduce all bacteria (good and bad) so probiotics help. People with chronic GI problems, older ages, food intolerances, low immune system can benefit from probiotics. ...Read more
Good for you: Everyone should take a probiotic almost daily to keep your gut healthy and prevent colds/flu's, etc combined with high dose vitamin d to keep serum level at 75 or so. Your gut flora produces antibiotic and antiviral substances, makes vitamins, helps keep your immune system healthy and balanced, and so much more. Take care of your gut and it will take care of you. ...Read more
They really aren't: Strep bacteria often hurt us, causing heart infections, rheumatic fever, tooth decay, and soft tissue infections. If you get involved with cults about stool microbes, they'll tell you that you need to eat special foods loaded with these microbes or your normal body flora and overall health will be ruined. This isn't my focus, but most of these claims seem overstated to me. ...Read more
Are there any noticeable differences between lactobacillus rhamnosus and lactobacillus rhamnosus gg?
Doubt you'll notice: The GG strain is a mutant that supposedly has remarkable effects as a probiotic. If you believe everything you read (mostly from obscure sources -- 80% cure of peanut allergy, major protection from colds and so forth), you'd be reading uncritically. I hope you get what you want from it. ...Read more

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
