    With all due respect to Mark's product the only probiotic that I really feel works for me is Dr. Ohirah's Probiotics 12 Plus I think it is called. They are a Japanese brand. I have 10 different kinds in the house right now and my wife is yelling at me daily to order the Ohirah's.

    My suggestion is not to use probiotics. They are neutral at best and harmful at worst.

    I don't take a probiotic every day, but I have been taking one for the last several days after a round of antibiotics for a sinus infection left my digestive system in disarray. They do have their uses I think.

    You can make naturally lacto-fermented veggies instead. Humans have eaten fermented food throughout history, good for probiotics and also helpful for digestion. You can also make kefir and yoghurt (I use water kefir as I am casein intolerant). Kefir and lacto-ferments are great as they are done at room temp, so very little hassle to make. I leave my water kefir for 3 days at it barely tastes sweet, then the kids drink it and I eat grains, as I need to keep low sugar intake. I'm delighted with the ferments, so nice to be able to have body-friendly relishes and chutneys with my meals after not having them for so long as store-bought ones mostly aren't suitable for me. I bought celtic sea salt to make them with so i can get extra minerals too.

    Having said that, I am taking Bio-Kult at the moment, as I suspect I have gut dysbiosis from years of gluten damage.

    I take Enzymatic Therapy's Acidophilus pearls or Culturelle on occasion. I can't have dairy products, and coconut kefir/yogurt is not my thing. No interest in fermenting my own stuff.

    Makes some Beet Kvass as I just mentioned in another thread. It is very easy and is a great spring tonic with probiotics.
    Find recipe here.

    I just bought Align yesterday to give it a try because it contains B. Infantis (unfortunately patented by P&G). Bifidobacteria is one genus found in breast-fed babies, and Align has been shown to improve IBS symptoms. As much as I hope this works for me, I have not seen measurable improvement taking any other probiotics. Acidophillus is the most overrated, IMO.

    Also, if you haven't already guessed, I make my own yogurt. I ordered several different cultures online to experiment with finding the right combo for me. Making yogurt is incredibly easy and fun.
