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
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
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

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

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus i'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex ?
Scalp problems: Vitamins in this setting have only limited use. Best to see a doctor for proper evaluation. In this modern age, vitamin deficiencies are rare as long as you eat a balanced diet (and are not vegetarian). I advocate getting vitamins, minerals and micronutrients from food rather than wasting money on supplements. It's a big marketing scam. Try selenium sulphide shampoo while you wait for an apt. ...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

Me= yeast infection for 3 mos. Tried creams, boric acid, Candida diet, probiotics, garlic, etc. Taking iron pills 4 anemia- could that be feeding it?
Yeast infection: You do not say whether you have used anti-fungals in your treatment, either topically or orally. That is the best way to treat Candida vulvovaginitis. Iron is highly unlikely to have anything to do with this. If you persist despite this you may be being reinfected by your sexual partner and they could be treated as well. If still an issue make sure your immune system is intact. Good luck. ...Read more
Can i take bowtrol colon health support probiotic tablets (275mg) and the green coffee bean max (400mg) with my thyroxine tablets (eutroxsig 100mg) ?
Yes, but why: Why take supplements that won't help you in any way and have never been studied scientifically. Who knows what's in them? They are never evaluated by the fda or any scientific body. Stay away from them, they can't help you and could potentially harm you. Take your thyroid properly and avoid getting your medical information from the internet. ...Read more
