Re: Yogurt

I just want to be clear and honest with everyone here; my ammonia Body Odor isn't gone. Far from it. My odor has decreased (when eating yogurt) to about a 5 on a scale of 1-10. To reiterate, the odor is still there. I have a confirmed diagnoses of IBS-C (Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation) by my gastroenterologist, since 2008.

Also to reiterate, there's no way you can eat enough yogurt to repopulate your gut flora on a "permanent" basis. The good bacteria eventually die off and have to be replaced. Also doctors recommend taking probiotics that have billions of good bacteria; store bought yogurts don't have "billions" of good bacteria. They typically have "millions."

"Lactobacillus bulgaricus is one of two types of bacteria that must be used as a starter culture for a product to be called yogurt, the National Yogurt Association states. Products that contain at least 100 million cultures per gram at the time of manufacture can label their products with the "live and active culture seal." Lactobacteria help break down lactose found in milk products. They may benefit people with lactose intolerance who develop stomach problems when they consume lactose, a Sugar found in milk and milk products.

Lactobacteria also produce B-complex vitamins and vitamin K. Lactobacillus bulgaricus may have anti-tumor properties, as noted by an animal study reported in December 1999 in "Cancer Letters." However, the application for humans is not established. Lactobacillus is easily destroyed in the stomach by stomach acid and may not have the ability to colonize the intestinal tract. This strain of bacteria does not normally live in the gut."
