Allergy Research SymBiotics with FOS puts the probiotics all together in one convenient powdered formula! Some suppliers claim that the probiotic strains can only work if given one at a time and that certain single strains have near magical properties. Yet the intestinal micro-ecosystem typically carries up to 400 strains of bacteria. From the point of view of intestinal health, a product that provides bacteria for the different probiotic "niches" makes a lot more sense. The nine strains in SymBiotics include Lactobacillus acidophilus; L. rhamnosus A and L. rhamnosus B (both more versatile and hardier than L. acidophilus); L. bulgaricus and L. casei (major contributors to fermented foods); and L. sporogenes (Bacillus coagulans), a particularly hardy and antibiotic resistant probiotic strain. Bifidobacterium longum and B. breve, two of the hardier bifidobacteria, are also present in high potency, as is Streptococcus thermophilus. The bifidobacteria thrive on the FOS provided in this formulation, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is added as a stabilizer. SymBiotics with FOS provides more than 4 billion viable organisms per serving.
As a dietary supplement, one (1)level teaspoon two (2) or three (3) times daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Some individuals using FOS experience gastrointestinal bloating that does not subside after 1 or 2 weeks of use. In those cases, FOS should be discontinued. Recent clinical experience by some practitioners suggests that there are some unfriendly microbial invaders that are suspected of feeding on FOS. Symptoms of that occurring would be as indicated above.
