They are good bacteria for the digestive tract.

If there is not enough good bacteria, then you will allow candida to overgrow.

Your system needs balance. I think almost anyone would benefit from taking them.

Go to walgreens and pick up Nature Made Acidophilus pills. Take 2 a day. Also Threelac is very good, but you have to order online.

I use Jarro-Dophilus from Whole Foods. It is great. I have noticed a lot less gas or irritation issues from normal non-allergic foods (onions, garlic, alcohol, etc) & also my body gets rid of gluten alot faster than it did before. My post-gluten symptoms used to last 3-4 days & now (depending on how bad it was) i am feeling better the next morning. My Chiropractor recommended 1 2x a day.

I'm now on the probiotics and they really make a big difference. I also use the digestive enzymes (I take one whenever I eat anything). The brand my doctor recommended was Ortho Molecular - it does not need to be kept in the fridge like some probiotics do. He's also got me on OrthoMega (fish oil), Floristor, Vitamin E, Fiber and calcium.

I tried probiotics, and had severe diarrhea and cramping for almost a week. I tried Jamieson (I think it was) Acidophilus, which is gluten and casein free (I even called to double check).

I wanted to stay on them, but I was so sick that after 2 days I had to stop.

Anyone else here have this problem?
