Is this amount necessary? Should I purchase the one you recommended instead?
Also – should probiotics be taken throughout the cleanse??
Digestive Grape Bitters and Grapefruit Seed Extract are completely different things right?
I couldn’t find your specific probiotic with a 60 billion count, but I found the 70 billion and 34 billion, they look fine as far as the ingredients are concerned. Since you have it, I would go ahead and take the container, then when you’ve completed this one, I would change to a different brand. This is a good habit which allows you to change both strains and counts on a regular basis. Next time try to find a brand that, in addition to the other strains, also contains Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 instead of just Lactobacillus acidophilus. There’s a big difference when it comes to curing a Candida albicans infestation. And the amount is fine. Eventually you can even raise the count to well over 100 billion which will be needed for the final cure.

That’s really up to you. But you would be better off if you wait for about two weeks before starting the probiotic or antifungal either one. The reason is simple; the cleanse and diet will cause die-off symptoms which are harmful to both your body and your liver. Adding a probiotic at the same time as starting the cleanse will only multiply the die-off symptoms making you ever sicker. You can take something to ease the die-off symptoms if you choose to, it’s called Molybdenum and is sold in most vitamin stores. You should definitely purchase this product and take it for at least three days before you start your probiotic. It wouldn’t hurt to be taking it during the cleanse either.
Raster covered your other concerns. But try to find the Grape Bitters without alcohol in them, or you can purchase Swedish Bitters without alcohol as well.
