Glad u started symbion. I wish u all the best with it. Yeah, it definitely seems just as potent as threelac. I see the numbers of the CFU's on my bottle, but people forget thet THREELAC is coated with canola oil ("micro-encapsulated" lol) in order to avoid stomach acid. Yet, we with digestive issues, and candida usually have minimal stomach acid. You need stomach acid to secrete to stimulate bile- the bile which will allow the candida to lose that coating in order to work.
I seriously think threelac, 'doesnt work' with many people because of how poor their digestion already is, and/or it needs to get on the walls of the colon or small intestine. People with constipation and poor digestion may have caked crap on the walls of the intestines. I find the greatest fiber I have used so far is acacia fiber (Heather's Tummy Fiber, or Clear Fiber by renew life- same thing)
