The choice of probiotics normally depends on the one you’ve been taking. Which probiotic have you been taking, Tres?

I’m takinf Pearls acidophilus 4 2x a day.TresJune 3, 2012 at 1:39 pm #83840
The information I found on the Pearl brand stated 1 billion or 5 billion, is this correct?
You can start with one of the probiotics below.
Innate Response – Flora 20-14 (20 billion – 14 strains) Ultra Strength
100% Whole Food Probiotic (with DDS-1)
MegaFlora by MegaFood ™ – 14 Strains- 20 Billion Per Capsule (with DDS-1)
Take one pill a day for two weeks then move up to two a day. Take the probiotic capsules on an empty stomach such as first thing in the morning one hour before your breakfast, or the very last thing at night at least two hours after you’ve had food or snacks.
If you’ve not already read the post that concerns probiotics, you may want to read it to learn why we recommend these specific probiotics.

HI, I have 2 questions..
1) I’m using Udo’s super 8 probiotic and it says to take it after a meal on a full stomach but i keep on reading that it’s best to take probiotics on an empty stomach…when should i be taking it?
2) I see in the ingredient list for probiotic i’m taking and all the other ones i’ve been looking at that it contains potato starch and that’s not allowed in the candida diet…should i not be taking these probiotics? :S
Thanks!June 3, 2012 at 4:44 pm #83852

Take it on an empty stomach; two hours after a meal or one hour before.
2) I see in the ingredient list for probiotic i’m taking and all the other ones i’ve been looking at that it contains potato starch and that’s not allowed in the candida diet…should i not be taking these probiotics?
Potato starch is used as a natural binding material which contributes to the consistency of the probiotic powder. Some probiotics use silicon dioxide instead, but hopefully, there won’t be enough starch to make a difference as it’s not like eating a serving of mashed potatoes. Other members have used this Udo’s brand without problems.
