Is there a rectal probiotic suppository for gut flora available

This answer was rated:

Is there a rectal probiotic suppository for gut flora available (either by perscription or otherwise)? In a google seaqrch I saw a patent pending for one. How do I get a probiotic suppository for men?
Actually you can use RepHresh PRO B - which is a pill - and you can actually take by mouth - you do not need to use in the rectum.

Hello JA customer. I see that you have been waiting for an answer about rectal probiotic.

I would be glad to help you.

Yes, you can use rectal probiotics like acidophilus. However, these are generally used in the doctor's office as you need an assistant to put the probiotic into the rectum directly.
It has been seen that some probiotics are sensitive to stomach acid and work better when introduced through the rectum.

I hope my answer is helpful to you.
