  •  I know that BC30 works very well. The pills found (0+ / 0-)

    in Drug stores and Big Box are called Sustenex or Digestive Advantage.  They are bacterial spores so they don't get killed by stomach acid which kills 99% of each serving of the other Lactobacillius probiotics. BC30 is also found as an addition to many foods since it withstands a lot of heat in baking, etc.  You probably need to feed your normal, commensal gut bacteria with the right kind of fiber too. I think that a resistant fiber that you can't directly digest but your colon bacteria can is really important. Inulin containg fiber is found in Jeruselem Artichokes and is that kind of fiber. Also a commercial fiber preparation called Sunfiber (mixes clear and clean in liquid) is a resistant starch that the gut bacteria break down into short chain fatty acids that are the favorite energy source for the cells (colonocytes) that line the lower gut.  Since 70% of all the cells in your immune system are in the tissue just outside your intestinal wall, a happy and healthy gut translates into a strong immune system.

    I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box. The TSA would put Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad on the no-fly list.
