Thanks for your question.
Phillip's colon health is a good probiotic.
Another one is Culturelle.
are metamucil fiber bars considered a pre-biotic
are you there?
they are dietary fibers --do not contain any probiotic.
what is a good pre-biotic?
inulin? Fiber Choice?
Yes Inulin is a good prebiotic.
Prebiotic promotes the growth of probiotic.
Following food items have high prebiotic content:
raw chicory root, raw jerusalem artichokes, raw dandelion greens, garlic.
I was told by a friend that has similiar digestive issues, to take a pre-biotic shake with a probiotic, also a multi enzyme (digestive) before meals, also to take berberine 400mg once a day. I was just wondering if Inulin would do the same as a shake? also what is a good digestive enzyme to purchase, and is berberine safe to take, I also take 10 mg of lisinipriol 2x daily and a 1 mg klonopin at bedtime.
Berberine does have beneficial effects on cardiovascular health, cholesterol.
It is good to take.
Any digestive enzyme brand should be ok.
Swanson premium, Now foods are some examples of reliable brands.
Inulin will do the same as shake.
any drug interactions, that your aware of, and can I buy most of this at any pharmacy such as walgreens or walmart?
They are available in any pharmacy.
Berberine interacts with cholesterol lowering medications.
It can increase the level of klonopin.
Hence, this is one interaction you need to be aware of.
OK maybe Just skip the berberine then,
Yes that should be fine.
Inulin and digestive enzyme are safe to use.
