    Probiotics , the gut bacterial , good bacterial , are essential to our bodies health .

    Probiotics to us older people is more important . Since the older we get the less good bacterial we have . Being 60yrs old I take the supplement .

    I supplement everyday with a 15billion multi probiotic tablet .

    Unless you have a specific issue, just go with the ones already there.

    I think you can also consume PREbiotics to feed the bacteria you already have
    Some foods do this (can't remember which-celery might have been one)

    I always thought this was a hilarious marketing point.

    Other companies should get on this bandwagon.

    But not the importance , especially , when getting older and further for those who have taken anti-biotics , at any age , to supplement and/or eat fermented foods .

    I also think that probiotics are necessary. But still the main place in health is nutrition. More green vegetables and herbs will make you healthier.

    Disagree

    While Individuals have their own probiotic needs . That does not mean probiotics should not be taken , especially when one gets older .

    The pill I take , 2times a day has 15 different types of bacterium forms .

    From that link:

    "The research group also looked at the impact of probiotics after a course of antibiotics, which wipe out both good and bad bacteria.

    Their trial on 46 people, also in the journal Cell, showed it led to delays in the normal healthy bacteria re-establishing themselves.

    Dr Elinav added: "Contrary to the current dogma that probiotics are harmless and benefit everyone, these results reveal a new potential adverse side effect of probiotic use with antibiotics that might even bring long-term consequences."
