I notice that some of the most popular yeast fighting probiotics have Bacillus subtilis as one of the included bacteria. Have you had much success with this SBO? Is it available as a stand-alone probiotic? Which is the best probiotic product containing Bacillus subtilis? Is there another SBO you think is better than Bacillus subtilis?
IMO, Bacillus Subtilis is the best anticandida probiotic available. It could be great to buy a probiotic with only this strain but I am not sure if it is available. Yes, the success of Threelac is based in this strain. What I am not sure is Bacillus Subtilis can kill friendly bacteria also. Bacitricin is made using bacillus subtiles. Threelac is labeled as a probiotic but it could be interesting to ask Global Health Trax about the effect of this strain on the friendly flora. It is very interesting how Bacillus Subtilis was discovered by the Germans during the Second World War.
Hmm. I have my doubts. I couldn't find much information about this product, but it sounds like it is homeopathic, which makes me think it is a very low dose. It also says it is non-acid resistant, which is the opposite of what you want.
its true.. it seems this strain is the best for candida.
I've tried Latero Flora and Flora Balance (same exact product).
I think it helped, my diet couldve been better.
The main guy who runs florabalance.com actually sells the powder on ebay for $14.50, which is good. (im not affiliated so don't even start (to those who have nothing better to do than assume the worst)).
And another on ebay selling the same (flora balance) Latero flora for $28... go figure.
You know, I really want to believe threelac works. There just too many actual reports of good things happening, that they aren't all fabricated. I think the B. Subtilis in threelac is just as effective as others. I personally think the E.F. strain in it is a powerful lactic acid bacteria.
All the bacteria in threelac is in spore form. It can survive pretty well. Personally i never did threelac longer enough. BUT on threelac last summer I was actually able to maintain a job. lol, when I stopped it.. that all came crashing down. I was too quick to stop.
Flora Balance is Bacillus Laterosporous. If you go to Flora-Balance.com and click that video they have on the right side, it gives u an idea of what it is. They have the patent on that strain. You really cant get it anyahere else.
Is Threelac safe in your opinion? It seemed to be all the rage for years, until I read reports of people apparently getting violently ill and losing their hair, etc. I'd be willing to try it even if it was a bust, but not if there's a risk that's it's got some toxic bacteria included.
Actually, after re-reading this thread I decided to check out flora-balance again, and I think Im gonna give it another go with the diet.
I ordered 2 off ebay (because that seller is the owner of the company, so I know its Not BS). And at $28 its cheaper than most of the stuff i buy for candida. I don't even want to think of that number actually.
Cheshire, best of luck with whatever probiotic you try. Message me sometime if u want.
