Helped with my yeast overgrowth issue.
July 10, 2011
I initially got this as a part of my recovery from Yasmin birth control pills (Yasmin Survivor's Forum for more detail) but it has done much more than just fix my digestion. I have always had some sort of issue but have never officially been diagnosed with IBS. I bounce back and forth between constipation and diarrhea, sometimes in the same day or week. I also just recently developed a case of fungus or something underneath my breasts and my scalp was breaking out really bad and I was losing hair.
I purchased this to see if I could tolerate it, and when I did, I was taking 4 capsules a day for the first week (with the idea of taking 4 a day for another week and then 2 a day for the next 2 weeks) but I ran out faster than my next order came in. This is usually how it happens for most people, but I didn't even notice how well it was working until I had to suddenly stop taking them during that 2 or 3 day period when I had no pills left. I didn't realize that my scalp and hair had gone back to normal and I was having no issues with the areas under my breasts AND of course my digestion was better UNTIL it all started to get bad again. :) So, thankfully my next batch of pills (60 of them this time.. but I had to get 30 more because the shipping took longer than I anticipated) is here and I'm back on my regimen.
Pros:Easily tolerated. Easy to swallow capsules.
Cons:Gross taste if I take it with plain water.
