How much probiotics are you all taking?

I'm drinking Kefir at least a few times a week, which is basically probiotic yogurt milk. That's it! It's extremely yummy, and comes in a lot of flavors commercially if that's your bag. You can also make it very easily at home, and cut way down on the added sugars by using stevia. It's also very filling without making you bloaty.

I know this isn't ideal for everyone, because it's not lactose/casein free, but if you're not sensitive to them, it's a great way to get probiotics into your diet without taken another pill.

I'm using Nature's Bounty Chewable Probiotic Acidophilus with Bifidum -- I always take before breakfast and dinner. I don't always remember to do it before lunch and don't seem to take a hit if I forgot occasionally. I do notice my gut gurgle resurfacing if I slack off with them!

I take Culturelle once a day. It is dairy and gluten free, and I have never had any problems with it. I would definitely recommend it!

I alternate three different brands/dosages. I take a 50 billion capsule once or maybe twice a week, then a 10 billion capsule three or four days a week, and a 1 billion bug pearl two or three times a week. First thing in the morning on an empty stomach with at least 8 oz of water. I try to wait at least an hour before eating breakfast, supposedly this improves bug survival rate due to less stomach acid or something like that...
