Can probiotics keep you from getting sick?

Brierley asks: Do you take a probiotic supplement?


Yes! I take Digestive Advantage. It survives the stomach acids. The full amount doesn't always survive to the digestive track in food. I saw it on Dr. Oz. I've been taking it for 2 months now, and was sick last week, only for a day and 1/2. From what I'm reading in this article it may be because I'm taking them. I believe I will continue taking them.

Yes, I take Culturelle & Florastor. Both are great at replenishing the guts normal flora. The additional benefit of Florastor is that it is a yeast so it is impervious to antibiotics.

Interesting your article. I take probiotics and feel great. Any way I don't buy them. I prepare myself sauerkraft and kefir. This way they are free of chemical preservative adds. I observed inclusive they calm down fever and gastritis too. Any way it is only mi opinion. Thank you for all information about our health.
