Thanks everyone for your input!!! I was beginning to feel like I was about to explode or something because... OMG... I smell like sewer!! That just tells me that my innards are YUCK!!! I am assuming that this is a positive sign that the probiotics are working
Amnesiac... ??? I'm confused... you said the custom probiotics looked like they were pretty potent, but you'd "never spend $40 a bottle"... I was thinking of buying the powder... it's $90 for 50g (for my whole family... adults use a large scoop and kids use a small scoop... both provided) which I thought was more cost effective than buying capsules. The Udo Erasmus caps I have are $16 per bottle of 30 caps @ 15 billion guaranteed at "best by" date. Since the custom probiotics was guaranteed and independently tested at 60+ billion, I just assumed it was better (see, I'm a newbie... more = better... LOL) Should I hold off or is there a better/less expensive product out there?
BTW, I got my husband to take these probiotic caps three times a day. He's had persistent heartburn, IBD/IBS etc. for YEARS and I'm banking on this regimen (once we get the dosage right) to get him off all of the stupid meds he's been taking (there's $200 a month). I will keep you all updated... I'm just so excited that he agreed to take these!!! He's already noticed that he's, uh, "stinkier" than usual, so I'm hoping that's a good sign of things to come!
Thanks to everyone again! I never would have learned about probiotics if it weren't for you all here!
