  • I take prebiotic and probiotic because I get UTIs. It has helped a lot along with a daily antibiotic. My transplant doctor is okay with it and my urologist recommended me to take them. 

    • Thanks Linda, I appreciate your reply.

  • I have continued ingesting pre - and probiotics less because of their stabilizing effect on gut-bacteria and gastric health and more because consuming foods containing them has always been part of my family upbringing and culture (no pun intended.) I have posted a report from the National Institute of Health's Pubmed articles below on pre and probiotics' effect on IBS and other gut-related maladies (pay attention to the related articles.) Efficacy for the use of supplements containing them is also examined in the other related articles.
