Several pages has been added that should help people pick and understand probiotic impact better
Picking Probiotics for a Condition
This page will search over 3000 studies on the US National Library of Medicine for studies that:
- Used probiotic strains that are available as retail products
- Mentions the word you search for in the study
We then add the name of the product containing it, with a link to a site selling it. There may be other products that also include it.
Why I react to one probiotic but not the other
This does a cascade, from the probiotic mixture we look at all of the species/strains in it, then we go over to the KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes and lookup the enzymes being produced by these bacteria. From these enzymes, we look up the products being produced.
When you compare two probiotics mixtures, you may not that one produces a lot more of some products than the other. These are likely candidates for why you have a different response.
