    I take both. They help. I take them as needed. I find that is best to carry the digestive enzymes with me so I can take them wherever I am when I eat, especially if city think it may contain something I'm not supposed to eat (food allergy). If I forget to carry them I notice the difference. Probiotics I leave at home in the fridge and take as, needed. I would take daily but can't afford to. Good luck.

    I take probiotic pills from biovea with 5 billion cfu, its good in tummy, makes me constipated but it does makes a little bloating cause it creates gas everytime i take it in the morning first thing when i wake up then night before i go to sleep. They say it causes bliating cause it is working, killing bad bacteria creates an explosion creating a gas but it is tolerable, i seldom use my digestive enzyme, i only took it whenever i have a big meal. I am practising my stomach so that it would be back on its own process, this all happens because of too much exposure on ppi and antibiotics when i was treated with gastritis with h pylori. After the treatment h pylori is gone as per endoscopy result but this problems arises after that.

      According to what i have read, its a good thing that causes minor bloating since it is working, a battle between the goid and bad bacteria creates explosion which is gas, bad bacteria die off, but it should subside.

      Ok my bloating started 2 years ago and was off and on 5 times for about 2 weeks at a time now its been with me for 6 months now and ive been on good probiotics. Wonder if im on rite kind or i have a bacteria that wont die off easily, like candida. Iron deficiency and low b12. Think it malabsorption due to leaky gut.

      I consistently bloat everytime i drink probiotic pills, most likely on my rigth side abdomen, im on a strict diet now. I have been in this condition since june of this year, there is a little improvement since i left off with ppi and antibiotics, my problem now is that my gastritis persist since i was exposed in ppi for 2 1/2 months, my gastric juices didnt become normal eversince, but they say it will be back if the body is totally healed itself, we just have to help our body to cope up.

      I agree. I was, bloated before. Now, when I'm well there's no bloating. Only if I eat diverging in allergic to. If there is bloating, maybe you can try drinking kombucha instead of a pill.

    Hello Shelly

    The NHS reports that the strongest of this evidence surrounds the use of probiotics in the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea (AAD).

    There's also evidence, albeit weaker, to suggest they may help in treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), lactose intolerance and acomplication of ulcerative colitis treatment. It is also thought that probiotics may help protect some premature babies from developing a dangerous gut disease.

    However, until more research is carried out, it's uncertain whether the benefits stretch any further than that. Generally, it's hard to see how swallowable bacteria could have an effect on conditions outside of the digestive tract.

    It should also be noted that there's likely to be a huge difference between the pharmaceutical-grade probiotics that show promise in clinical trials and the "probiotic" yoghurts and supplements sold in shops, which may not live up to the advertised claims.

      What do you mean, Swallowable probiotics working outside the digestive system when you swallow them, something that goes into the mouth is the beginning of the digestive system and they work in the gut, small intestine, large intestine, duodenum they all work together along with your liver gallbladder, pancreas, are all connected to digestion. You got good and bad bacteria you got enzymes you have hormones, probiotics may be the place to start.

      You wrote this in the above thread, "Generally, it's hard to see how swallowable bacteria could have an effect on conditions outside of the digestive tract". Did I misunderstand can you explain that further please

      Ah my mistake - I was paraphrasing from the NHS website - there is no explanation for why the probiotics work just the knowledge that they do.
