So... I bought probiotics today. It has 12 strains and 20 billion bacterias, or something.

 

It says we should take two capsules a day, but I've read that some people tell you to take double dose of what is recomended.

 

What do you guys think?

 

Thanks! catdance.gif

I have heard to take double also. Something to do with the time the product spends on the shelf killing the good bacteria.

No do not take double at first. Start low and work yourself up to double the dose if you feel like it.

More does not mean better. If there is anything i could write that would stick on this section of the forums is that more does NOT translate to better.

Thanks for answering, I'm starting now with two capsules a day, and see how it goes, and maybe take three in about a month.. grinwink.gif
