Probiotics questions

Discussion in 'Fibromyalgia Main Forum' started by fibrobutterfly, Oct 27, 2008.

  1. I buy the Jarrow Jarro-Dophilus with FOS (healthfood store recommended this brand) refrigerated probiotics ...

    1. Do you take them ALL the time or just when stomach is bothering you?

    2. How many do you take a day?

    3. They say take 1 to 3 a day, but when do you take them after one meal all at once or each meal.

    thanks, don't know much about them, other than they are supposed to keep your gut healthier.

    Take them on an empty stomach. When I had the colonoscopy done, that was my chance to take the probiotics by supplement and drinks to replenish the colon.

    They are the good bacteria in the gut that fight off the bad bacteria.

    Yes, definitely take them on an empty stomach and take as much as you can tolerate. You may have to work up to 3 a day...I take 5 a day, all at once on an empty stomach.
