The gut’s friendly bacteria, the probiotics, modulate our immune system to make it efficient, but not overactive.
When these bacteria are low, it allows pro-inflammatory bacteria to grow. This inflames the entire body — including the brain. We call this bacterial imbalance dysbiosis.
There are a number of companies making probiotics, I prefer the Theralac brand, and their new prebiotic (food for friendly bacteria) formula Truflora can be used for enhanced effectiveness.
All probiotics should be refrigerated, even if the label says it isn’t required. This allows longer shelf life.
Take one probiotic capsule once or twice a week, unless on antibiotics — then take three capsules daily throughout antibiotic treatment and for one week afterward.
