Favorite Probiotics

There is a mountain of evidence that probiotics and the bacteria in our systems are extremely important. We are composed of 10x more bacteria than human cells. The bacteria balance in the intestines helps regulate our immune system and mental states. I have tried a lot of different probiotic brands in the last 3 years. Some seem to be very powerful (in the way they affect me...digestively and mentally) and some I can't tell any difference at all. 

Here are the best ones I've tried:

1. Natren Probiotics - I have tried the Healthy Start probiotics and they are strong and effective. There is a definite change in my body and mental well being
when I am taking them. I just discovered these a couple of months ago.

2. Theralac - Before I discovered the Natren, I took a few rounds of the Theralac, these are also very strong probiotics! They suggest taking them for two weeks straight and then alternating days after that.

3. Renew Life - This is a distant third to the two above, but these are probably the most widely available. These are also much milder and I have taken them daily with no problems.

(It's probably not a bad idea to rotate these occasionally too, since some have different strains of bacteria)

In addition to the pill probiotics I also like to cultured veggies and probiotic drinks like Kevita. I'd suggest monitoring your body's reaction to all of these probiotics. I have noticed that they tend to be dehydrating for me, so be sure to drink a lot of water. As the good bacteria pushes out the bad bacteria I have also noticed various healing reactions, which are usually a temporary worsening of symptoms ranging from digestive upset to skin rashes, to mood swings. After those pass though, the physical and mental improvements are always worth it!

Just a personal note: There is nothing new under the sun. I am just attempting to present info. here that has helped me. I hope to present it in a clear way based on my experience with anxiety which was a spiritual, psychological and emotional awakening for me. In retrospect of this experience I have been reading as much as I could to come to a deeper and more grounded understanding of this seemingly mystical thing that happened to me (so that I could share it with you). I'm not a doctor or a scientist. Please know this is only my experience. Yours will obviously be different, but since my experience was so similar to others I've talked to, I am hoping this may be helpful or useful to you in some way. It's also a way that I hope to share the love with you. That is my purpose here.
