What Are Your Favorite Probiotics

I am more and more recognizing the importance of healthy intestinal flora in health, and acne. My acne problems didn't really start until I did back to back long courses of ciprofloxacin a couple of years ago. (well the story is a bit more complex, but I won't get into it) I am basically clear, except for one patch on my left temple and forehead. This patch always seems to flare up with digestion and irregularity issues. Anyway, I have tried a couple of probiotic brands and want to share them with you guys, and see if anyone has some they recommend. I haven't taken them on a regular enough basis to see the effect on acne, but I am going to over the next few weeks and see what happens.

Right now I have:

-Nature's Way Primadophilus Bifidus http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Way-Primadophilus-Bifidus

-Country Life Power-Dophilus http://www.vitacost.com/Country-Life-Power-Dophilus. I have been taking this one for a couple days and it seems to be doing some good things.

Waiting in the mail for:

-Nutrition Now PB 8 Pro-Biotic http://www.vitacost.com/Nutrition-Now-PB-8...philus-for-Life

And yes I do eat foods that are natural probiotics, but I am not sure this is enough to counter taking such a powerful antibiotic as cipro.

Not sure if this counts, but I drink that DanActive stuff...although I guess it's dairy and also has sugar in it, lol.

Hey, it's great to hear that others are becoming more aware of the health benefits of symbiosis in relation to intestinal flora. All of the above brands are quality no doubt, but they contain only 1 or 2 strains of beneficial bacteria. Although it is expensive, I take Garden of Life Primal Defense. It has 12 different strains of probiotics, and it is very well worth the price. I was recomended it by one of my knowledgable managers at the local health food store I work at. It has definitely helped me control my candida problem and have more regular BMs.
