  • Pro-Biotic suggestions?

    I had a CDSA 2.0 stool sample test done by Genova Diagnostics done.
    In the Microbiology/Bacteriology section it reads:

    Beneficial Bacteria.
    Lactobacillus Species (NG)
    Escherichia Coli (+4)
    Bifidobacterium (+2)

    Additional Bacteria.
    Alpha Haemolytic Streptococcus (NP) +4
    Gamma Haemmolytic Streptococcus (NP) +4
    Bacillus Species (NP) +1
    Citrobacter Species (PP) +4
    Streptococcus Agalactiae (NP) +3

    I tried Body Biotics probiotic already but feel like it may have caused some constipation. Any other suggestions?

    Have you considered natural, whole food sources like fermented vegetables, meats, dairy, fish ...? Even a bit of safe dirt is good if you can find it.

    It is just as important to keep the gut bacteria you have, alive. Feed them. They happen to like carbs that we find indigestible to us. Might help the constipation too.

      Interesting interview of Erica & Justin Sonnenburg from Stanford regarding our gut microbiota and keeping it healthy:

        although i'm known too see-saw diet quite a bit and cheat on weekends, I have eaten pretty healthy for some time now. My diet mostly consists of chicken,salmon,vegetables,sweet potatoe, coconut oil, olive oil and occasional fruit. I have yet to stick with this diet for a extensive amount of time but during the week this is basically what it consists of. As far as fermented vegetables, i've yet to experiment but would like too. Living arrangements are kind of hard though so i'm going to try and find a source i could buy from online.

        Im going to look into the interview posted above as well. Thankyou for sharing

          Thank you ChuckS. Glad I took the time to listen and will probably end up buying their book.

                The winner hands down is homemade sauerkraut. " 2 ounces of home fermented sauerkraut had more probiotics than a bottle of 100 count probiotic capsules. Translated this means one 16 ounce of sauerkraut is equal to 8 bottles of probiotics." http://nourishingplot.com/2014/06/21...obiotic-count/

                  i have to agree and a serving of kraut costs pennies, vs. $$$$$ for pills.
                  As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                      I assume the bacterial profiles of kimchi and sauerkraut are the same, just different in seasoning and texture. I enjoy both, but I have assumed they are the same bacterially. Is that true?

                        I've always assumed that as well but I really don't know.
