Probiotics helping (or hurting) Probiotics

A while back I built a bacteria to bacteria interaction model with rich results. With the addition of the anti-modifier page for professionals, my mind went over to finding probiotic interactions. This is based on the 2000+ microbiome samples uploaded. I have the basic results below

The more positive, the Impact number the more it helps the other species. A negative number indicates that it will reduce the other. Thus, you should not take Clostridium butyricum and Akkermansia muciniphila together. If you are trying to increase Bifidobacterium bifidum then take Arthrobacter (in Prescript-Assist®/SBO Probiotic) and/or Lactobacillus paracasei.

You may wish to check my retail probiotic page to find out which products contains different species.
