VSL #3 or a soil based probiotic like Primal Defense? What is better?

More evidence 4 VSL3: There is a good amount of research proving VSL #3 is safe and effective: http://vsl3.com/hcp/scientific-info/ While Primal Defense makes many claims and is supported by testimonials, I'm unaware of any research studies proving it's effective and some question its safety. See http://www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=278134 Thus,while Primal Defense may be useful for some, VSL #3 has proven benefits. ...Read more

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

When replenishing good bacteria during/after antibiotics, which is better -- probiotic supplements or increasing intake of yogurt, kefir, etc.?

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

Harvard's recent research: "gut flora is key to either gaining or losing weight, pill on the horizon". What food alters bad bacteria into good ones?

Doubtful: Body weight is calories in versus calories out. I could only find articles about obesity and gut bacteria in obscure journals (help me, anyone?) and i suspect this is just one more fake internet story. I bet dimes-to-dollars this "pill" never appears, but until it does, why not head down to the gym and have a really good time working and eating with fitness-focused friends? ...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. Whey is primarily a protein source. ...Read more
