I know that the bacteria feed on the lactose (the sugar) naturally present in milk, so that by the end of the process of fermentation all the sugar, either natural or added, should be gone. I'm just wondering, if you add sugar would that make the... (more)
The companies that sell the grains??? and the people throughout history who have made kefir must have to make the grains without existing grains so how do you make kefir grains at home?
Given the antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties of coconut oil, would the effectiveness of probiotics be inhibited by coconut oil, even if the two are taken at the same time? What about if they are spaced out a few hours?
I'm looking to make some homemade fermented foods to get the benefits of the probiotics they produce. However, I was wondering if it would be possible to expand the range of beneficial bugs that grow in it. For instance, say I made some... (more)

Okay, long story short- I had sibo symptoms for about a year and was told I have IBS. Finally found a DR that would test me for SIBO, and i was off the chart positive. Went on a 14 day antibiotic to clear it. The my doctor wanted to address my... (more)
I've found a stable symptom free dietary point eating very low fat fish and scallops and white rice with occasional beef. However this diet isn't very tasty. Whenever I introduce more fat, I get fatigue, extra sleep, mood effects and IBS. It's... (more)
What happens if making ice cream or the like with raw milk, heavy cream, etc. Does freezing raw dairy just makes the good bacteria dormant, which awaken when thawed or in the gut (at a warmer temperature)? Could one make homemade frozen yogurt in... (more)
I've been taking Precipt Assist for about a year and Align (6 months or so) once a day. I'm not totally symptom free and taking the Precipt alone caused some nausia. I read somewhere that some of the probiotics in Precipt Assist can cause or make... (more)
Both carrots and radishes have arabinogalactans in them. Does boiling the vegetables nullfiy their prebiotic effect?
I figure you could get a more potent probiotic supplement/drink and you would essentially have an indefinite supply which could give your wallet a break. It's also interesting because of the potential for creating customized probiotic beverages/foods (more)

So, sauerkraut has, according to testing carried out by Dr. Mercola, a very high probiotic content (see links). My question is if these beneficial bacteria really survive to where they are supposed to go? I know that probiotic capsules such as... (more)
Most bacteria die in the stomach. But some make the trip, specially those imbedded in the kraut. More will make it if the eater has low stomach acidity. They then go on to populate the intestine under favorable conditions.

Can I combine the two? I have high levels of it and probably candida and SIBO too. Would it be better for me if I added biofilm enzymes and VSL#3 probiotics? How about coconut oil, garlic, digestive enzymes, cranberry juice, vitamin c? At what... (more)
I've been using Pre Assist as well as Prebiogen (prebiotic) for my acne, and it has worked, however not completely. But ultimately I am noticing a difference on day 20. After deciding to read more on the studies conducted correlating the gut-skin... (more)
Are you a horse? No? Then horse probiotics are not for you. Seriously, think about it, do you have the digestive system of a horse? Do you have the diet of a horse? Why would you think that you'd have the same digestive flora?
My reasoning for starting paleo is the inflammatory response I get from trigger foods which results in acne. Okay just an update before I ask: I've been on paleo about 80% to 20% for 4 weeks, and I just eliminated eggs, and I've noticed a huge... (more)
I like kefir… but not plain. Unfortunetly, the store bought flavored versions have upwards ogf 20g of sugar per cup. So I've been flavoring my own. Vanilla is nice; however I know vanilla extract has quite a bit of alcohol in it (you can... (more)

Would covering organic fruit/veggies in forest soil, rinsing and then consuming provide free probiotics for my gut?
Hey all, I've been paleo over a year now, no grains, legumes, dairy, the only sugar is a little fruit like bananas or yams no more than once a day, many times skipping a day. I eat either raw spinach or cooked collard greens once a day too. I... (more)
