*As the probiotic flora colony begin to take over the gut and the harmful organisms like gram negative bacteria and yeast begin to die off they can release toxins causing headaches and/or loose stools and/or upset stomach. This is termed “die off syndrome” and is a temporary discomfort along the road to better health.
Keep refrigerated or, even better, keep in freezer section of refrigerator. Safe to take traveling unrefrigerated but best to keep as cool as possible.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT STARTING PROBIOTICS!!
It is not uncommon to experience what is referred to as excessive drainage syndrome when ridding the intestine of pathogenic bacteria and yeast and re-establishing normal flora. When the unwanted bacteria and yeast begin to die off and be cleansed from the intestine toxins can be released which can sometimes lead to headaches, diarrhea, gas, bloating, or constipation.
This is really a positive sign that the intestine is being cleansed of these toxin releasing and illness-promoting bacteria and fungi but it can be uncomfortable for a few days.
