    Default what brand of probiotics do you use?

    i've been giving the kids nature's way kids chewable ones. no idea if they are any good or not. there is such a positive change in jacob lately and it is one of the few changes i've made besides school ending. although i've tried some modified behavior things with him.

    Default I use a powder

    Jarro-Dophilus and just put a 1/4 or so in juice or apple sauce, etc.

    I saw your question about Threelac (that was you wasn't it?) being a pro-biotic and the way I understand it is that it is more than a pro-biotic. It has stuff that kills the yeast and then it's a good idea to take some more to put good stuff back in, but you don't have to.

    "Probiotics are a good thing. We even recommend using Flora Five (or other probiotics) along with Threelac to repopulate the colon after Threelac starts clearing it out. (Threelac was not developed to repopulate the colon with "good" bacteria. It's mastery is destroying fungus). "

    Culturelle... it was recommended by the pedi gi. It contains lactobacillus gg, which stands up better to acid in the tummy.

    its over the counter but you need to get the pharmacist to order it. Its capsules that you can break on food/jelly/jello/yogurt/applesauce. You might also be able to order online.

    Can you give it any time of the day? right now I give their chewable at breakfast. I guess i could find a food that I could give it at breakfast. What do you find works best? Do they know its there?

    Just curious. What made you start giving it in the first place? I started with faith because she was on antibotics all the time and was trying to boost her good bacterias. With jacob I just decided to try it and see if there was any positive effect. We've had a positive effect I just can't trace it to the probiotics.

    I got the nordic naturals strawberry chewable littke liquid filled balls. I am going to get the straight up oil next time and stir it in her oatmeal or yogurt. I am taking the little balls myself now that my bottle of capsules is empty.
