Hello, Ben. If you’re asking if the Nordic Dida Cinnamon and Herb Complex is the same as the Ecobalance, unless I’m reading the incorrect description, I’d have to say no it’s not.
Here are the ingredients of the Nordic Dida:
Per daily intake of 2 tablets:
Origanum heracleoticum (oregano) 5:1 equal to 1500 mg dried herb-300mg
Olea europaea (olive leaves) 5:1 equal to 1000 mg dried herb-200mg
Calendula officinalis (potmarigold) 5:1 equal to 750mg dried herb-150mg
Thymus vulgaris (thyme) 5:1 equal to 750mg dried herb-150mg
Elettaria cardamomum (cardamom) 5:1 equal to 500mg dried herb-100mg
Eugenia caryophyllus (cloves) 5:1 equal to 500mg dried herb-100mg
Allium sativum 5% alliin (garlic) 15:1 equal to 1000mg dried herb-67mg
Cinnamomum zeyl oil (cinnamom oil) 10mg
Foeniculum vulgare oil (fennel oil) 6mg
Mentha x Piperita oil (peppermint oil) 6mg
Stabillisers (di-calcuimphosphate, tri-calcuimphosphate), Origanum heracleoticum extract, Olea europaea extract, cellulose, Calendula officinalis extract, Thymus vulgaris extract, Elettaria cardamomum extract, Eugenia caryophyllus extract, Allium sativam extract anti-caking agents (talc, vegtable magnesium salts from fatty acids), Starch, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Foeniculum vulgare oil, menthe x piperita oil. neglible energy, protein, carbohydrate and fat.
As you see, Nordic seems to be just a concoction of many different herbs instead of probiotics. Personally, I believe it makes more sense to obtain your herbs individually. That way you have control over how much and which ones you’re getting this way.
The ThreeLac you’re taking contains probiotics just like the Ecobalance does; however, only three types of bacteria show up in either list of ingredients, yet there is something like 400-500 different types of bacteria in our bodies. If you’d rather not purchase a probiotic containing more strains of bacteria, you can go with homemade kefir which will also build the flora in your system. It’s much cheaper than a capsule or liquid form of probiotic.
Good luck, Able
