Probiotics Anyone?

I have not taken any probiotics as a post-op. I have not really felt the need to do so. I have decided to start taking them as of today.

Here are a few of the health effects of taking probiotics:

Elevated Blood Cholesterol
Helicobacter pylori
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Immune System Modulation
Kidney Stones
Lactose Intolerance
Necrotizing Enterocolitis
Oral Health
Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth
Staying Healthy

That is a WHOLE lot of health benefits. I figure it can't hurt. At this point, how could two more pills a day hurt me?

Also, a few bariatric doctors are starting to make it a requirement of their WLS patients.

What type of probiotic am I taking?

Solaray Multidophilus 12

"Over 20 BILLION Microorganisms, 12 Probiotic Strains"

Must be refrigerated. Thanks Vicki for telling me about these!
