Raw dairy - milk, yogurt, or kefir if you can tolerate
The hubby and I started with 1/4 cup or raw milk and worked our way up to 1 cup a day over 1 week.
OR Refrigerated Probiotics - it costs more but how many do you think are alive in the non-refrigerated ones -you're wasting your money on those - I'm speaking from personal experience.
Non-refrigerated ones (various brands for months) did nothing for my husband and I.
The refrigerated ones I've noticed can work (depending on the situation) in hours to weeks and can be quite potent!
MegaFood DailyFoods™ MegaFlora Description
Optimal Potency Probiotic Formula
MegaFlora® is a life-enhancing blend of 14 unique probiotics at an optimal daily potency of 20 billion.
Each probiotic strain in MegaFlora is gently filtered from the food growth medium and is tested to be free of gluten, dairy, corn, pesticides, herbicides and soy.
Megaflora by Megafood has 14 types of probiotics found in refrigerated section of Whole Foods. Take 2 capsules a day when feeling ill or any GI distress (diarrhea, constipation, etc.). You must keep refrigerated.
Probiotics and raw fermented foods must gently be increased with time - otherwise they will give you gas (all the bubbling and reproduction). :)
You can break 1 capsule and scoop out the light brown contents with a fork into any dairy like yogurt, kefir, milk (even almond/coconut milk) and the good bacteria will continue to multiply over days in the fridge in the food you insert it in. There may be some bubbling after several days - that is normal - the good bacteria are reproducing!
MegaFlora is a broad spectrum probiotic blend. Each vegetarian capsule of MegaFlora provides 20 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of 14 non-competing, life-enhancing probiotics, inherently found in a healthy intestinal tract.
