    probiotics


    I have to take antibiotics (doxycycline for about 3-4 months) and my doc said I better take some lactobacillus with it. So what kind of probiotics should I get?

    Could you explain more about what probiotics are? I usually take minocycline while on cycle to keep acne to a minimum. Would a probiotic be something I should also look into?

    I take pro-biotic plus from bioinnovations.net, best i have found so far.

    expensive but has all the types.

    Best to just take one once the anti's have be digested or will just kill the pro's.
    And then take a good week+ once completly off the anti's.


    Lifted,

    Pro-biotics are good bacteria that live in all areas of your digestive tract. They help in digesting food, killing bad bacteria, virus's and other various nasties. Some studies report they also help keep your teeth healthy.

    Pretty much what Forster said. I don't know much about it, but antibiotics kill good bacteria in your digestive tract, so you should use some kind of probiotics to replace them.
    I searched a little and "Acidophilus" by NowFoods looks pretty good and cheap.

    I usually take what has a mix of 2-3 bacteria in a sufficient number. There are so many that I cant recommend anything. i try to keep away from antibiotics as much as i can. Last time I had to was this january with the fuc*ing flu that caught me while i was on PCT. And that **** fuc*ed my ass. 3 weeks of probiotics helped me recovering.
    U need to run probiotics for at least 3 weeks and 2 weeks after u finish the antib.

    Thanks, Syr. I didn't think about it at all, stupid me. I've been on antibiotics since december and didn't use any probiotics, now I have to stay on for another 4 months. That sucks.

    Acidophilus is just one type of pro.

    You have L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, L. bulgaricus, B. longum,
    E. faecium, L. plantarum, L. rhamnosus, lactobacillus,
    and L. salivarius.

    Each one lives in a diffent part of you tract. From mouth all the way almost the end

    If stopping antibiotics for whatever i take 3 caps a night for 2-3 weeks.

    To keep things running good i try and take 3 caps every week or so.

    I think its 28ish per bottle of 60. Has all the the strands of pro-biotics in 60billion Colony Forming Unit count.

    CFU effectivenes vs normal bacteria count is like planting a 15 foot tree (1 CFU) vs a seed (1 bateria).

    I work in the pharmacy, and we have this stuff that we keep back there in the fridge. I dunno if the fridge one is any better, but if I had to take it, I'd probably take the fridge one compared to the shelf one. I'm sure most pharms should have it.

    Primal Defense: http://www.transformyourhealth.com/g...imaldefpow.htm

    My dad has ulcerative colitis, my step father has crohn's, and I have IBS and we all swear by it. IMHO there is nothing better.

    Primal Defense is good, iFlora is the best bang for the buck IMO, WAY more viable cells and more strains to boot.

    30 billion per gram or 15 billion per capsule

    The bacteria in iFlora is stable at room temp and resistant to acid and bile much like PD's HSOs
