I have a bottle of Super Acidophilus (it even has a cape) and I take one with each antibiotic that I take during the day. It has saved me from multiple problems when I must take an antibiotic. Otherwise I take one a day. I really don't like yogurt!

I eat a Pre-biotic multigrain bread from this company. I don't know the difference from pre biotic and pro biotic. My guess it that they are Market driven names. I usually have a loaf in the freezer and toast it. Beckmann & Markner Inc. Dimpflmeier Exporters

Some have made claims that it boosts the immune system, and helps promote antioxidants in our digestive systems. I dunno, I just like the taste of it.

Pre-biotics are nutrients for pro-biotics. Pre-biotics essentially feed the pro-biotic microbes. If you lack a healthy environment for the pro-biotics to thrive, taking a pro-biotic will not really be effective without a pre-biotic. Many people take a pre-biotic to feed their natural beneficial microbes rather than take additional ones via a pro-biotic. There are lots of signs that you do not have a healthy environment for your beneficial microbes or that you lack the pro-biotic microbes: Gas, exhaustion, sugar cravings, yeast infections to name a few.

I just knew what it was! Not where to find it! Sheesh.

I knew about whole grains, wheat bran and onions, but not much beyond that. I found other sources on Wikipedia. Reading over it with microbes in mind, it makes sense. I am sure others may have a more comprehensive list.

It made sense all right, but it made me laugh to think of someone speaking a few of those sentences out loud.
