Solaray Probiotics: How the powerful get more powerful

**”Here, take these…”**
My friend, a successful personal trainer and health nut, handed me four little pills. I asked him what they were. This felt like a drug deal.
“They’re probiotics,” he said. “Take them. You’ll feel much better in no time.”
Probiotics are bacteria, like the kind you find in yogurt. They help maintain a very important balance of microorganisms in your digestive tract that aid in digestion, nutrient absorption and killing germs. When we get sick, travel too much, or take medications like antibiotics, the microorganisms in our stomach become imbalanced, leading to long-term G.I. distress and general illness. Taking a high dose of probiotics is the fastest way to get your body back on the right track.
I was suffering from a terrible head cold and had already taken an over-the-counter decongestant, but it didn’t help much. I still felt like I’d been run over by a moose.
I was completely blown away when my symptoms went away within hours after taking my friend’s pills. My nose cleared up and my cough was gone. I felt like a superhero, healing myself within a matter of hours. I instantly became a believer in the power of probiotics.

Probiotics are bacteria. And like all bacteria there are a lot of different species. Some are more effective than others. Look for brands that contain multiple strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. You get bonus points if your brand also has Pediococcus acidilactici, Saccharomyces boulardii, and/or Bacillus Coagulans.
Make sure you find two or three brands you like, that way you can cycle through them the same way you would for a fiber supplement or [L-Arginine](https://straighttothebar.com/articles/2012/06/gettin_swole/index.html).
Solaray is an excellent company with a great track record for high-quality supplements, and their Multidophilous line of probiotics works brilliantly as one of my choice brands. I experienced no side effects while taking the pills, and my only complaint was that the pills needed to be refrigerated. This was easily remedied by adjusting the time of day I took my dose.
Multidophilous contains three strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, delivering 3 billion organisms per dose. I recommend taking 3-6 pills twice per day, and adjusting the dose depending on your reaction and tolerance.
There is [plenty](http://www.internationalprobiotics.org/) [of](http://www.gastro.org/) [research](http://www.isapp.net/) to show that probiotics improve everything, so you have every reason to start taking them. Solaray Multidophilous is an excellent way to start.
