Which probiotic do you use?

Hi all. I am planning on starting my son on Culturelle today. I would just like to know which probiotics you all are using.. And are there any typical side effects with them? Just want to know what to expect. Thanks!!

Jennifer

I used something in a white bottle in the refrigerator section - it tastes like raspberry and Rohan just gobbles it up

no side effects - except his tummy seems a lot better with it

Thanks everyone!!

Culturelle is a probiotic. Means for life.  Antibiotic mean against life.

Our son as been on a lot of antibiotics since 6 months which has left his system out of wack.  On culturelle he is less irritable so I know he feels better.  It has also helped with his reflux.  I have tried stopping it several times and by one weeks time he is irritiable and bloated again.  And he has gotten fungal rashes on his private area and his feet before going on it and once when we tried to stop for a longer period of time his feet broke out in a fungal rash again.  On antibiotics we have to give it twice a day instead of once.

Zayer... do you give the Culturelle ds or hs type?

 

hi

just wondering what culturelle is and what it dose for your kids?

My daughter uses Klaire Lab Ther-biotics (stored in the fridge).  My son uses Custom Probiotics (stored in the freezer).  They have gone threw a few until we found the one that worked the best for them.

The only side effect I can think of is yeast die off.  What you are using is good so if your child has a lot of yeast the die off may be a little worse.  You can google yeast die off to read more on it.  Activated Charcoal from the health food store helps to grab the toxins released by the yeast (that causes the die off) and flush it out of the body, thereby reducing the side effect.  It is only around $7 from the heatlh food store and you can mix it in their drinks.  You want to give it a 1-2 hours after you administer the probiotics...and give it away from other minerals and supplements if you can.

Our older dd takes the Rhino brand, they are raspberry tablets.  But, she hates the taste so we are shopping around for others (she can now swallow pills, so I think there are capsules she can take).  We use Jarrow Baby's Jarro-Dophilus for younger dd as she needs a dairy-free & powder formula (we mix & push through tube).

We use culturelle because my son's gasto dr. reccomended it as the only one that has been proven effective.  No side effects at all with culturelle. 

We use a probiotic, I forgot the name but we got it from walmart.  My son got irritable and broke out in a rash.  We stopped it and went to culturelle about 6 months later.

ProBioGold from Kirkman Labs...recommended by DAN! doc.

Ryansmom,

The box just says culturelle with Lactobacillus GG.

My oldest takes the culturelle "lactobaccillus GG" capsules and the Nature's Sunshine "L-Acidophilus capsules" for IBS/ulcerative colitus~both are kept refridgerated..she has been taking them for over 5 years now and they are a miracle for her:) Good luck!Thanks everyone!I am surprised my dr has not suggested this my son has had difficulties with infections as well and many antibiotics, he also has such severe reflux if he overeats at any given time he will progectile vomit.  I will have to ask him about this.

Probiotic: Klaire Lans Ther-Biotic Detoxification Support (Refrigerated)

Vitamins: Nu-Thera with P5P

Zinc Drops
