Pros and fermented foods have similar qualities but look for higher number of strains in pros rather than higher amounts. They interact. ...Read more
Insulin release: Hi. Most dairy products have some sugars in them, and they stimulate insulin release accordingly. Butter has no sugars, but is usually put on things that have sugars/carbohydrates, and as such, insulin is still released in response to the whole package.

Will probiotics decrease the efficacy of antibiotics, such as doxycyline, by renewing the gut flora, therefore 'using up' the antibiotic in the gut?

What is your view on the fodmap diet? Why can't probiotics be used instead of this diet? Does exercise increase absorption of fodmaps?
Helpful for many: The fodmap diet is proven to help many with ibs & some with ibd. The idea is that certain sugars are poorly absorbed & then fermented by intestinal microbes producing gas. While probiotics might help slightly by reducing unfriendly flora, even the "good" flora in probiotics can ferment these sugars. I know of no evidence that exercise increases absorption of fodmaps & doubt it would. See comment:. ...Read more
