Yeah, last time took probiotics, I broke out. Can't remember why, but I searched and found enough reasons to suggest it's not a great idea. Also not good for people with Leaky Gut Syndrome.

hey thanks for the response. First of all, how bad was the breakout and how long did it last? Second of all, which probiotics did you take? The reason i am asking is because i am currently on antibiotics, and thus taking probiotiocs with it as well.


How would i know if i have leaky gut syndrome?

My naturapath actually recommened me probiotics to heal the leaky gut...I have no problem with it at all does not break me out. Did you see a natural health therapist?

yogurt doesnt contain nearly the amount of probiotics you would need, if you take a good probiotic supplement youll be fine. also kiefer is a great source of probiotics you can eat some while on your supplement

Take probiotics that are worth a damn. Try Garden of Life. All of these cheap "acidophilus" pills or these supplements you pick up from Walmart for $5 are... garbage. Might as well flush your wallet down the toilet.

216 tablets. Take 1-3 a day. At the least, it will cost you like $6/month
