Re: restoring intestinal flora plus activia expose~!
Sorry to reply to a 4 year old post, but you posted something that resembles my exact problem.
Ive taken Antibiotics
off and on for most of my life. Mainly for sinus infections. However, I got strep throat, and had to take penicillin. After the treatment I started to develop foul smelling stools. My transit time sped up, and instead of me going once every 3-4 days(Im normally constipated) I was going 4-5 times a day. Plus i had easy bruising, which was unusual for me.
I first tried yogurt, didnt do a thing. I then tried probiotics, this supplement was about 8 billion. Ive improved gradually for about 12 months, but my bowels still are not 100%, along with my overall mental alertness. Im thinking of finally trying a 100 billion CFU probiotic supplement, since researching and finding our gut contains 100 trillion. I really havent been doing much with those 8 billion I take a day. Plus the 8 billion I take is only acidolphus and bifidus.
Would you be kind to offer any other suggestions? Thanks I would really appreciate it!
