Reinforcments are on the way!
So, I was taking Florastor and patiently counting the days to finish my fight with this bug, when I found a study that said something like, “Lactobacillus GG is effective in reducing the 3-wk recurrence rate of Clostridium difficile”. What is this? Give me some! Lactobacillus GG is another probiotic that appears to be safe and actually beneficial in the fight against C Diff.
I was skeptical, but excited. I had already read tons of studies on Florastor being effective in preventing recurrence of this darn bacteria, so I started reading about Lactobacillus.
Pediatricians are using it for kids who are on antibiotics.
It is safe and well tolerated.
And best of all studies are showing that it is effective in fighting C Diff!
So, I hurried to search for where I could get some. The only product that I could find that was backed by a major company for it’s quality, was Culturelle.
If you need it in the next hour, you can find it most pharmacies and at places like Costco now.
I suggest getting on their monthly automatic shipments so it comes every month right on schedule, because once you read the benefits and risks you’re going to want to stay on this longer term (not true of Florastor).
Well, I was convinced and started taking the recommended dose for prevention of recurrence.
