Just curious if anyone knows why - every time I eat probiotic foods I get a yeast infection. I take a probiotic capsule daily and that's fine but no go on probiotic foods.
I've heard that probiotics need food to feed off of so that's the basis of my question. From my research (although it seems to be an unclear topic), the best time to take a probiotic is about 30 minutes before a meal to let it sit in the stomach... (more)
In my search to heal a 2 year long battle with cystic acne, I finally had someone suggest to me: "Maybe its a result of too much probiotic?" This baffled me because every piece of advice I have taken in has been to "take more probiotic!"... (more)
I swallowed mouth wash this morning in a rush. I felt fine after, it was a cap full. But I've become paranoid about my gut health and wondering if it would harm my gut flora or body? I mean if those get rid of bacteria in mouth wouldn't it harm... (more)
I can't seem to find. Anything on google about this, only about water kefir and I dunno why? I'm trying to figure out how to get vitamin k2 without eating natto or supplements
It???s almost universally agreed upon that probiotics are beneficial to your gut. Without the tremendous amount of bacteria covering our bodies inside and out, a lot of which is friendly, we would very quickly pass away. Probiotics is no... (more)
I'm huge fan of their probiotics, but they don't have lacto strains in them. I wasn't sure if there needs to be lacto strains for veggies and if that has to do more with taste than effectiveness in fermentation.
In researching some different probiotics, I came across Saccharomyces boulardii and this article in particular. Would it be beneficial to increase the yeast in my water kefir grain culture? (more)
Don't know about kefir, but I have been prescribed boulardii for my leaky gut syndrome by my functional medicine practitioner. He said he noticed a very good recovery of the gut lining in his patients using this particular probiotic.
Greetings from Denmark fellow Paleohackers =) My question is if sour milk or filmj??lk - that we in the scandinavian countries eat quite a lot of - is paleo? Since apparently it's actually lactose free and full of healthy probiotics! /Nate. ... (more)
For a bacterial chest infection that's been plaguing me for 7 weeks. It been getting worse, despite me trying to eat a good diet and take vitamin D etc. I am aware of the negative effects of them so wondering what the best way to combat them will... (more)
Given the antibiotics will kill everything in their way its best to concentrate on repopulation after you've finished them. I don't think yogurt will really offer enough, kefir would be better. Maybe one month on a multi-strain high count (as in... (more)
I'll keep this as precise as possible. My job involves me being on my feet for 9 hours of the day and working with many cleaning chemicals. Once i began to eat more paleo and cut our dairy and white carbs I knew I had to start taking probiotics.... (more)
Hi, Can someone please recommend a potent probiotic supplement that will help replenish my gut flora? I was looking into VSL#3 and Klaire Labs Ther-Biotic under the recommendation of someone here. I want something that will replenish my gut... (more)
Any thoughts on this probiotic drink, Symprove? I know it's made from barley (boo!), but it's supposedly gluten free. It was suggested by my (non-Paleo) dietitian and claims to be superior to probiotic capsules in delivering 'live, activated... (more)
Sounds like ProViva, a Swedish probiotic I've encountered. I'm pretty sure it's not that new, but a lot of people use it with good results. I'd say give it a shot, and if things get worse (inflammation, GI problems), then ditch it. I think the... (more)
Hi, I have decided to test probiotics. I bought four different kinds of probiotics. I took two caplets/glass vials of each and dissolved them in a small plastic dish with milk. I left them sit overnight. Milk was supposed to go sour, but it did... (more)
I'll try to make everything easy to understand, but bare with me... I'm having problems with my digestion as a 16 year old kid(which is likely causing my acne); specifically with starchy vegetables and fruits. I am Paleo about half a year and... (more)
In reading several articles on probiotics, and being given some outstanding advice from the pH community on how to deal with my GERD issues. I'm wondering what all the fuss is about FOS? I'm going to do a week of ZC, per Melissa's suggestion, and... (more)
I want to do some fermenting (beets, carrots, onions, and maybe some eggs.) But I can't find starter cultures or whey at a store. I don't want to mash up my items either, I like nice big picked chunks. I was thinking I could mash up a... (more)
The companies that sell the grains??? and the people throughout history who have made kefir must have to make the grains without existing grains so how do you make kefir grains at home?
Is store bought kefir dead from pasteurization and thus a waste of time? Well a waste aside from the taste. *I don't know if they pasteuri*ze it or not??? I just assumed as a liquid dairy product it would probably have to be pasteurized to sell... (more)
Honey is often said to kill bacteria, for example manuka honey fights H. Pylori in our digestive tract. But does it harm the good bacteria in our gut (regular honey, not necessarily manuka)? What about when I mix honey with a probiotic yogurt or... (more)
I'm on a course of antibiotics and don't want to risk them messing with my digestive system too much. Usually I eat a lot of yogurt so I wouldn't worry, but I want to stay dairy-free for at least month before trying to add them back into my diet.... (more)
Go to Whole Foods and grab a jar of Bubbies sauerkraut since it sounds like you can't wait around to make it at home. There's also kimchi nearby and other lacto-fermented veggies if they have them. In addition to the probiotic foods above, eat a... (more)
I just found out that my 77-year old mom is having regular diarrhea. She is quite weak and underweight after a major spinal fusion last spring (112 at 5'7" + 2 of those Pounds are stainless steel or Titanium...) i was shopping in whole foods the... (more)
They have a different balance of cultures--both are good! If she is lactose intolerant, the kefir will have little or no lactose. Also coconut water is useful for rehydrating and replenishing Potassium.
Have read and tried the 24hr yogurt associated with GAPS/SCD. Understand from the explanation that the fermentation process obviously produces lactic acid out of the lactose, but there is also mention of rendering the casein to be more digestible... (more)
I hear a lot about the awesomeness of sauerkraut and kefir in restoring gut flora balance, but there isn't much love for pickles, which happen to be the only fermented food I like. I just bought a jar of Bubbie's (boobies?) dill pickles, which,... (more)
