My nutritionist recommended I take two powerdophilus probiotics daily with meals. I take one with breakfast and one with dinner. Each capsule contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus (4.2 billion), Lactobacillus acidophilus (3.6 billion), Bifidobacterium lactis (3 billion) and bifidobacterium longum (1.2 billion). I order these online at Country Life.com. My GI doctor is aware that I take these and said they are fine.
