Do I need a stronger probiotic?
Everyone is different and not every probiotic is compatible for each individual. But if you find a probiotic that is compatible then IMO there is no such thing as too many probiotics. Your probiotic, Nature's Bounty advanced probiotic 10, contains only 20 billion CFUs. Many here take probiotics with 50-80 billion, and the most popular is prescription VSL#3DS which is 900 billion per packet.
Probiotics are the mainstay of my remission as well as monitoring my diet for gluten and other food triggers.
Male/61 DX IBD in Feb08. No meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Remission since Mar10. Powdered psyllium seed mixed with VSL3 is very helpful. Food journal instead of SCD or Paleo.
Lots of fruit & vegetables (but no plums or cruciferous), No Gluten, no soda, no HFCS, no xylitol or sorbitol, no trans fat, no shellfish, few processed foods, no carrageenan.
Probiotics, fish oil, multivitamin, extra D3, K2, E complex, phos choline, magnesium, boswellia, curcumin, DGL, glutamine.
Nature created all of the locks, therefore Nature has all of the keys
