Seed Probiotics – No Persistence

I just got my 2nd microbiome done at the end of two months of the new Seed Probiotic. Conclusion: No persistence despite being human strains.

The conclusion is clear using the recent enhancements to the http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net site, “My Taxon Time Line” available to those who have uploaded two or more (you need two samples to get a time line!). Below are before and at the end of each of the two months with Seed.

Bottom Line

If this probiotic shows up on your recommended list — then take it. It’s effect should be to shift the balance — but do not expect persistence. If you wish to increase Lactobacillus, you should be taking bacillus probiotics, see this earlier post by someone with high lactobacillus and bifidobacterium.
