Sold at H&B, has 20 billion live bacteria for good flora.

Has anyone tried these, are they any good?

Thank you.

Hi Lisa.. Happy new year :D
I used them for most of last year, attracted by the high dose, and great for hols, as they don't need to be refrigerated. I'm not working now, so don't get all that helpful 'feedback' but don't remember any nastiness from strangers in hot shops.... I tend to change my probiotics regularly to hedge my bets, and keep my bad bacteria on their toes, and am now on Lamberts, which I buy online..

Hey Kc,

Sorry for the late reply.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year too. (belated).

Thank you for that info, I agree, changing every so often is a good idea, stops you from getting immune to them I s'pose?

I hope you are keeping well, and enjoying life. :D

Have you had anymore testing after your diminished results? Just curious to see if there is any difference if you have.

Take care.
Me.x
Lisa

Thanks Lisa...better late than never :D

Yes, definitely still making the best of life, and I bet you are too. (no relaxing fags on Bude beach for you recently though, :? )

My doc wouldn't refer me to Dr L .. He said it wasn't worth it, probably due to my age, and the fact I won't take antibiotics. Though I'm definitely still diminished compared to the grief I used to suffer, I think I'll never be cured, either from from the odour, or from the paranoia it leaves us with....my friends and family all think I imagine any reactions I think I've had from other people. I think the shame and guilt we suffer from, gets extended to what we eat as well, and we get 'the guilts' about eating, and blame ourselves for that too... iyswim. Kcx

Hi,

I have type 2 tmau and in addition to the low choline diet im currently taking one Nullo tab a day along with 100mg riboflavin. Can someone recommend a good probiotic and just remind me the exact importance of taking the probiotics?

Thank you.
Davey

Hi Davey,
Well different probiotics seems to suit different people so I m not sure is there a definitive answer to your question but I think I m right in saying VSL#3 is the strongest probiotic on sale in the UK and Ireland. Unfortunately its potency is reflected in its price, it can be quite expensive.
A different kind of probiotic in that it comes in liquid form has been gsining good reviews recently. Its called symprove, sorry I can t provide a direct link but if you google symprove and the daily mail you ll come across some interesting articles.
I saw one person recommend you use both vsl and symprove on alternate days.
One more thing you might like to look up is fermented foods and drinks like sauerkraut, kefir drinks or kombucha. Its a diy form of probiotics, made correctly they should contain tons of good bactera. The great thing about them is that one you start making them it doesn t cost you anything.
I think probiotics are supposed to have a number of benefits but the main one for sufferers like us is that the good bacteria they introduce into our guts will hopefully take up residence there crowding out the bad odour producing bacteria. If you ve got tmau2 I think that means your gut bacteria is producing too much tma for your body to convert to a non odourous state. So you really need to change the composition of your gut bacteria, unfortunately through personal experience I can say its not such an easy thing to do but good luck with it anyway.

Hi Bailey

I asked my doctor if I could have probiotics on prescription and he said no. I don't think he was being awkward or obstructive as he's been very good so far with everything I've asked for. I've had 2 TMAU tests through him and a DNA test. Could be different in different areas though. You could always give it a try and ask your doctor.

Hi bailey14.. I think that GP's can't, but specialists can, if they're so inclined. Kcx
