Some sources to consider for probiotics

I’d like to do:
  • Lactobacillus Fermentum ME3
  • Lactobacillus Kefiri LKF01
  • Lactobacillus Reuteri
  • Lactobacillus Casei
  • Bifidobacterium infantis
  • Bifidobacterium Longum
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium Breve
But I don’t find them isolated. ūüė¶
As readers know — I tend to look unfavorably on both probiotics mixtures and probiotics that lacks strain information. If the probiotic source is not human, there is a very low chance that they will take up residency (Soil Based Organism are the probable exception)
The sources that I know of for these are:

Custom Probiotics provide strain information, including the ATCC number.

Note: they may not be available in the country you are in. I have faced that issue often. My past solution is to get an online friend to forward them to you and you buy them and get them delivered to their address, they then forwards as “Gift – probiotics” for customs.

The other option is looking on eBay – the vendors there tend to ignore any government regulations that prevents regular outlets from stocking them or shipping to your location.
