How To Do A Probiotic Challenge
HOW TO DO A PROBIOTIC CHALLENGE!
Restore: Baseline Probiotic offers a 50:50 blend of lacto and bifido probiotic strains to support the bowel without fermentable fiber that can throw off gut bacteria. This makes it a great probiotic to use in a “test” of tolerance.
Often times with Candida or bacterial overgrowth, probiotic foods and supplements will not be tolerated well. This challenge is an easy and cost-effective way to evaluate the need to dig deeper with a cleanse!
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Grab a sewing tape, a notebook and a bottle of our Restore: Baseline Probiotic.
Step 2: Take your waist circumference measurement at your belly button for three days in a row from rise to rest and record.
Step 3: Start probiotic at 1 capsule at bed for 3 days. Continue to measure waist circumference at rise and at rest.
Step 4: Increase by 1 capsule capsule every 3 days until you meet 4 per night at day 10 of active probiotic challenge (not counting initial reads without probiotic)
Step 5: Try to continue at 4 per night for 3 days. Note changes in waist circumference as well as any changes in GI cramping, bowel movements, belching, or gas during challenge. Continue taking probiotic 1 at bed if well tolerated.
IF SYMPTOMS IMPROVE with increased use at 3 or 4 capsules at bed, refill with our Targeted Strength Probiotic which equates 4 Baseline pills in one at 60 billion CFU per capsule.
