Things that interfere with probiotics

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there are any foods or substances that would interfere with the probiotics I take.

For example, I hear about a lot of things like garlic, cinnamon, etc being anti-microbial. If they take out the bad things, then that's fine but do they also kill probiotic bacteria?

I take Garden of Life Primal Defense if it makes any difference.

Hey there-

It seems worth mentioning that anything that speeds up your digestive system can mean the probiotics are given less time to be absorbed into your system. In other words, avoid foods that generally tend to "speed things up" (e.g. caffeine or high-fiber foods) for a few hours after taking them.

I've been taking New Chapter Organics Probiotic All-Flora, and have been pretty happy with it as well.

Best of luck!
