    Depends on the case and organisms I am trying to balances, as well as pre existing condition plays a huge part in the selelction
    For average person <20-30 billion per day 8-16 strains should be fine.

    kelp and iodine are both the same thing in supplement form ?
    and they are both safe at a maximum amount of 12.5mgs daily for long term use?

    Thnks
    12.5 mgs kelp you are risking heavy metal toxicty amount other things.
    Again long term studies are not published, but japanese people have been consuming it for centuries with no issues with lowest rate of cancers. I always suggest people when on 12.5 mgs for 3-4 months check their TSH and thyroid to be safe..

    no, kelp is natural, and as the matrix has said may have issues with contamination. on the other hand straight iodine through something like iodoral

    wouldn't have the same issue.

    Iodoral is sold as 12.5mg total (5 mg iodine / 7.5 mg iodide) and to all intents seems safe long term at that dose.

    With kelp, the impurities + contaminations are what makes a difference to what is a safe dose, and so its really hard to pin a number down.

No weight gain but I will retain more fluid in my love handles. So I have proof that for me it is not estrogen related which confirms I need greater water intake and less sodium and fewer carbs than I prefer to consume when less disciplined.

    Yes fluid retention can be caused by many dietary factors and not just the hormonal factors such as to much estrogen and excess of cortisol
