Long time readers know that I have down on most lactobacillus probiotics for a long time (there are a few exceptions). There was a recent study finding that lactobacillus probiotic use is associated with brain fog.
So how do you reduce lactobacillus. I went over to DataPunk and see some easy items to add
Going over to Microbiome Prescription for Lactobacillus, we find also:
- sulfites food additives
- These are used with the Jadin Protocol
- vitamin d
- enterococcus faecium (probiotic)
- carob – but cacao increases
A few things to reduce or exclude from your diet are:
- almonds/ almond skins
- gum arabic (prebiotic)
- bacillus probiotics
- Bifidobacterium probiotics
- lactobacillus probiotics
- barley and oat
- high fiber diet
- inulin (prebiotic)
- pulse / legumes
- oregano (origanum vulgare)

Brain fog can often been the greatest challenge to improvement. Bad decisions are made, decisions are confused.
The above excludes other factors that may be part of your health profile.
