I have seen this before, and thought it a big ad given the style of the presentation, pulling the reader along , teasing, and then expected a product to buy.

This turned me off.

BUT. Given my level of understanding all the information is correct.

The shelves are filled with individual yogurts for our lunches, and yet the added sugar is counter to gut health as it feeds the bad bacteria. Activia brand was made to change their advertising years ago from one serving to two to make their claims correct--IMO they won as then folks will double their consumption to acheive their "goal".

( I look for no sugar added, and recently individual size containers are now on the shelves.)

Candida is a real problem--Atkins addresses this at length.

Though not familiar with this exact bacterium, there are over 35 naturally found in the gut in humans. Our yougurts on the market shelves contain only5 that I have found so far.

Antibiotics are well known to kill of the gi microbes, the good and the bad. I usually look for a non-antibiotic solution first. But the antibiotic is necessary, load up on replacement gi good bugs asap.

Overall, the info seems to be correct. The presentation is just a big ad. That turns me off.

I haven't eaten yogurt in years because of the added sugar. So I don't have to stand in front of the yogurt display reading all that fine print, what are the brands you have found?

Thanks a bunch!

I hadn't eaten yogurt in many years and then I took antibiotics for an infection a few weeks ago and the only yogurt that I have found that meets my requirements is at Whole Foods. It is their store brand 365 Organic Plain Whole Milk. It is sold in 32-ounce containers.
