I’m glad that the move is over for you, now maybe … maybe? … you can relax and get some much needed rest.
About the Lifeplan Acidophilus: Any type of acidophilus “can” contain the bacteria listed below, but then again it may not contain all of these, which makes taking acidophilus a more doubtful supplement than buying a product which lists the different strains by name rather just a category such as “acidophius” (a group of bacteria possibilities, more or less).
To show you the difference, the type that I’ve mentioned from Renew Life contains 14 definite strains of bacteria instead of a possible five.
The five possibilities in acidophilus:
Bifidobacterium species (B)
Lactobacillus acidophilus (A)
Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus
Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus (L)
Lactobacillus casei (C)
The SMI powder contains both Cellulase and Hemicellulase, two enzymes that I’ve spoken of on the forum. Both of these enzymes can and do break down other enzymes in the intestines into a sugar which in turn feeds the Candida extending your treatment period. They’re literally feeding the Candida, Katy. Other than this, the SMI measures the amounts of probiotics in mg instead of billions, so I really have no way of comparing their amount with what is needed to treat Candida.
As far as the Threelac is concerned, you could try it if you like, after all, everyone else seems to have. Personally I don’t have much faith in it. When you’re looking for a probiotic in the UK, just remember to look for ‘billions’… and lot of billions, and numerous indentified strains on the label.
The supplements you named;
If you’re only going to take one of the above instead of both, I would choose the Molybdenum.
candida clear (I know you think this one isn’t good able, but it has a bunch of good things in one capsule and thus reduces costs)
Not only do I think that it isn’t a good product, I think it’s a complete waste of money, even if it is cheap; the price matches the quality. You’re already getting the Caprylic Acid in your coconut oil which is much more potent and better for you. You should take liquid Oregano Oil if you want to kill Candida, and not the tiny bit that’s in a capsule.
Nattokinase is a clot dissolving substance, why did you choose this one?
calcium/magnesium botyrate – I’ve never researched this particular type before.
phosphaticyl chlorine – This is a useful detox supplement as well as supporting the liver.
About your stomach problem, it would only be a wild guess on my part if I attempted to diagnose this problem.
Why do you have just the magnesium pills? You mentioned purchasing calcium, and you’re right, you should take a calcium supplement along with the magnesium as they depend on each other for absorption.
What type of B complex are you planning on purchasing? That’s what the probiotic does, produce B vitamins in the intestines in the correct ration.
Yes indeed, I am at the lake and it’s beautiful this weekend. Perfect conditions.
Enjoy your weekend.
