Proper timing of probiotic supplements may improve their survival.
What dose should we take, and under what circumstances? See my first video in this series: Preventing & Treating Diarrhea with Probiotics. Then, I compared probiotics to prebiotics in Preventing the Common Cold with Probiotics? The series ends with Gut Feelings: Probiotics & Mental Health.
Update: In 2017, I released a new video on probiotics. See: Culture Shock – Questioning the Efficacy and Safety of Probiotics.
I was surprised to find so few actual data on this topic, but that is par for the course for much advice about dietary supplements. See, for example, this series:
- Health Food Store Supplement Advice
- Bad Advice from Health Food Store Employees
- Dangerous Advice from Health Food Store Employees
- Pharmacists vs. Health Food Store Employees: Who Gives Better Advice?
Vitamin D supplements should also probably be taken with meals for maximum efficacy (see Take Vitamin D Supplements with Meals).
