  • Probiotics?

    Are Probiotics worth the expense? The best ones are very pricey. And another topic....is there value in a colon cleanse?

    They are worth it if you truly have a diagnosed gut disorder where probiotics are actually shown by science to provide a therapeutic benefit (IBS, colitis, diarrhea, etc.). Short-term intensive probiotic therapy has also shown to provide benefit after antibiotic therapy. Other than that, there are a lot of weak theories that this or that strain will prevent or cure certain disorders. It’s mostly gobbledegook research perpetuated by supplement manufacturers. That said, I used to take a high-dose 14 strain probiotic that was very expensive after antibiotic therapy. I quit 2 years ago and felt no worse after stopping.
