Have anybody tired kombucha? And what do you guys use for probiotics?
Hi Taylor, I have not tried kombucha. I and most people on here take VSL3 or Visbiome as a probiotic. Many other people take other probiotics but the ones mentioned are specifically designed for controlling pouchitis and jpouch support.
There is lots of info on these things if you look around the forum.
Vsl, for me, isn’t covered by insurance and is too pricy. My doc suggested floristor about 15 years back and I stuck with that for a while. Now I just take the CVS brand.
Florastor wouldn’t be my first choice, since it’s not a bacterial probiotic. It’s a yeast strain that seems to offer some protection against C. diff. The less expensive probiotic that some folks here have commonly recommended is Align. I’m not sure that the “less expensive” ones are any cheaper for a comparable dose, though - a similar dose of VSL or Visbiome would probably cost about the same.
