    Hi Able… I’m 2/3 way through my 1st probiotic Udos Super 8 and so need to decide what to go with next. I can’t find this one (DDS-1) in local shops and not on Amazon either. Any ideas?

    Hi, Lucy. Amazon UK has the MegaFlora with DDS-1 probiotics. Can you order from them? Let me know if not. iHerb.com also carries it, and I know lots of folks in Europe have ordered from this place as well.

    Oh ok, sorry… I was searching under the wrong thing. Will try the shops again tomorrow before ordering online. If I find it should I switch over straight away or finish the others first?

    No problem, Lucy. I would definitely finish what you have, no sense in wasting your money.
    Also, check out the post that Thomas wrote.

    Hello, Thomas.
    The probiotic looks good; 50 billion count and 14 strains, plus it contains the DDS-1 type, very good choice.

    I was wondering if taking the 200-14 would help heal you faster than the 50-14? Also can you take too much probiotic?

    I’m doing the detox cleanse right now and want to add the best probiotic I can for the money, when the time comes.

    200 billion is too much to start out with, but raising the amount of probiotics slowing to 200 billion is acceptable.

    Research shows that too many beneficial bacteria in the intestines can cause an *immunosuppressive response in the human body. This is why we should take a large amount of probiotics during the worse part of the infestation when they are obviously at their lowest amounts. Once the infestation is under control with basically no symptoms, this is a sign that the flora have multiplied, so at that point it’s wise to slowly decrease the amount of probiotics. If the Candida symptoms began to show up again, then the amount of the flora was not sufficient, and the amounts of probiotics should be raised again.
    *An immunosuppressant can come in different forms, such as pollutants and even one’s own testosterone, but another example is a medication normally used in cases such as organ transplants where you would need your body to accept the new organ.

    Thanks for the information.

    It takes both to fight a Candida albicans infestation.

    I was wondering about Maltodextrin. I read that it is a sweetener and has a fairly high GI.

    I have a probiotic which contains maltodextrin and inulin. Should it be avoided for the diet?

    The inulin is fine of course, but the Maltodextrin can present a problem for you. It’s made by boiling down the starch from rice, corn, or potatoes. So as you see, the Candida should love it.
    How many doses do you have left?

    I’ve just seen the post mentioning maltodextrin and now see that it is an ingredient (no amount given) in the milk thistle, vitamin C and calcium/zinc supplement I am taking as well as being in my probiotic.

    I will now have to source other products without maltodextrin. I just hope I have not set myself back too much
