I'm no stranger to probiotics. I have taken a probiotic every day for the last 5 years (Lactobacillus GG/Culturelle) as well as eating lots of fermented foods and coconut kefir and yogurt (coconut and dairy until my new nursing couldn't tolerate dairy in my diet, now just coconut milk yogurt.)

Recently I read here about the health benefits of coconut water kefir, the colony count is really high and it is a whole food as opposed to a capsule. So I tried Inner-Eco brand yesterday. Dose was 1 tbsp, I only took 1tsp because I like to start new things slowly. About 5 minutes later I felt very very nauseous like I was going to vomit. It lasted for a few hours. I feel fine today. Was it a fluke? I'm afraid to try again smile.gif

No one in our family has experienced that kind of reaction to inner-eco, we started on a one ounce shot daily, which is a large dose. Even DH, could take that amount without any issue, following a course of IV antibiotics. If you wish to continue, I would, but go slowly, it sounds like you might have an issue with your gut biota and need the help even with all the previous probiotics. We have found inner-eco to be extremely effective.

 

DH did have an problem when he took the inner-eco together with 8oz of Good Belly, I think he over did it, so that might be an issue for you too?

Could be I overdid it. Too many different probiotics? Do you take yours straight from the spoon or mix it? Before/after eating? Maybe this could also help me before I try it again...
