Hello, Joy. Hope you’re doing well.
Unfortunately, I see a few problems with the ProTec probiotic.
First, it only contains four groups of beneficial bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Bifido bacterium bifidum and Streptococcus faecium. So my question would naturally be, why settle for only four strains when you can find so many more in other brands? The other thing is that I don’t trust any probiotic that doesn’t require refrigeration. Most of the companies advertise this as a plus, when in reality it isn’t at all.
Yet another problem is one of the enzymes that it contains, namely cellulase. Many brands will claim that cellulase will assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates found in cellulose (note the difference in the spelling of ‘cellulase’ and ‘cellulose’).
What they don’t bother to tell you is that cellulase is not an enzyme which is naturally produced in the human body, but only a synthetic enzyme. They also won’t inform the consumer that when cellulase breaks down the fibers in the vegetables we eat, a simple sugar is formed from the combination which does not happen with the body does this with its own natural enzymes. The sugar then feeds the Candida which only prolongs the treatment period.
This is why I recommend Digestive Grape Bitters since this product allows the body to produce its own enzymes in the number and type that is needed at the time.
The last problem is the Dextrose that it contains. Dextrose is a simple sugar, and even though they claim that the probiotic doesn’t contain enough for a significant contribution to blood sugar increase, a small amount taken on a daily basis is definitely enough to prolong a Candida infestation’s existence.
Thanks for your post, Joy. Please let us know how your treatment is progressing.
