I only use them sporadically or when I feel a GI problem coming on, but yes they do help quite a bit in the digestion and immune system departments.

I tried the whole probiotics bit last year. It gave me the worst smelling gas.

I use them a lot as I'm on long-term antibiotic therapy for Lyme disease.
IMHO, the best combination is a good full spectrum lactobacillus probiotic combined with Saccharomyces boulardii yeast (Flourostor, etc.). The Sb isn't affected by antibiotics and contributes to a better environment for the Lacto bacteria (supposedly).

It is good stuff but i cant afford it to be a staple really. I used it when i was taking in a VERY good amount of calories on a bulk to help digest. I go the yogurt route now with intent on high fiber diet.
Sinner gets the horrible putrid smelling gas from the gerbil.

Get some stoneyfield's orgainc yogurt. add in some additional inulin, what the bacteria eat, for great gut health.

I've been studying probiotics for a while due to my wife's UC. The possible reason that some probiotics don't do well with some people, IMO, relates to the fact that with over 400 species of bacteria in the gut...all in different ratioes in different people..it's going to depend on if you are adding a species you actually need or not.
Diet and various immune system parameters all contribute to what ratio of organisms you have in your gut. If you are already high in several Lactobacillus species, then adding more of them could cause GI distress..gas, diarhea etcetera..instead of the desired affect of helping you.
I don't state this to dissuade anyone from using probiotics..on the contrary, you might just want to try different brands until you find the right fit.

I wonder how much more of a benefit one would get from using this with an IF diet or with cheats? I'm thinking that it will help with digestion/absorption of some pretty big meals?

I have just started taking them again cause ever since stopping ON gold standard which has aminogen there is a lot of gas in the basement.
Has anyone tried Kyolic Kyo-Dophilus 9, I havent tried it but aparently its ment to be the best.

I just bought a Kashi cereal that is supposed to be filled with probiotics but I suspect it'll probably prove to be more of a marketing lure than an actual working product. I'm with bio though, I only use them when i'm feeling symptoms of GI coming. I use Gut health as well as some NOW Foods stuff.

Can't remember, I passed out when the winged monkeys showed up, I woke up wearing a pair of wet nikes. Apparently I thought it would be cool to jog naked in the surf. Thank God Before the internet.
