Thread: Probiotic for long-term use

    Probiotic for long-term use

    What probiotic is best for long-term use with antibiotics?

    I had been using Pearl probiotics, but a doctor prescribed Floranex. However, Floranex apparently only contains two kinds of bacteria in it. One of probiotic threads on this forum said one should get a probiotic that contained as many strains of bacteria as possible.

    you should take at least 6 different types of probiotics. i use nature's way primadophilus optima. it has 14 strains and works great when i am on antibiotics

    Whichever product you select, be certain to follow the manufacturer's instructions about storing the probiotics. It makes no sense to spend money on a great product like the one CrypticGimp uses if you don't keep it refrigerated, which is what keeps all those different strains and active cultures alive.

    the cultures in yogurt are pretty much dead and not at the levels you need for good colonization.

    Thanks. I've been trying the Primadophilus Optima for the last several weeks and so far it works better than the Pearl.

    For the sake of Google searchers, I'm updating this old thread to mention that the Primadophilus Optima stopped working for me after a while. I've had much better results with Garden of Life Ultra. (To be fair, I'm also taking Align with that, but I think it is the Garden of Life that is causing the benefit, because I did not notice improvement until I started the Garden of Life. I am staying on the Align because the doctor said to take Align, but Align alone did not help).
