Ok, I know 6MP is an immunesuppressant. I have read a lot on here and the internet - understand some of it but realize what it does - and that I am more lifely to get an infection, etc. THEN, why do I drink a yogurt drink - Dannon - that is supposed to BOOST my immunity? Sounds like one goes against the other. Also, what about probiotics, etc.??
