I'm wondering if someone can help me here.

I can't remember who but some member here(I think was male)had his child on probiotics but it wasn't acidophilus it was something else.

If anyone can help me with bringing up the thread(if they remember)I would appreciate it.
I want to buy the probiotics at the health food store today, try them on the kids this winter to see if they help.

Thanks a bunch!

Smack, what is probiotics? Obviously I can not help you as to if it is any good or not!
Just want to know what it is. Is it a vitamin of some sort?

I know it was in the Main Discussion Board under something like Thanks. It was a story of someone outgrowing it. I've since bought a book that talks about it because it caught my attention. I'll try to find it again.
Is this the thread you meant? Sorry, I still can't link. It's under Main Discussion Board, poster's name is Schnook, and the title is Just Wanted to Say Thanks.
The book I bought is Food Allergy Relief by James Braly MD. I have NO idea what this doctor's reputation is, but the book is all about natural cures for food allergies and there's a chapter on probiotics. I haven't started reading it yet...

My allergist suggested my children take acidophilus once a day - he sells and recommends Nutrition Now which comes in a powder form for my toddler (which I dissolve in her milk) and chewable raspberry tablets for my preschooler. Supposedly, there are no major studies to prove it, but medical professionals beleive it can stop the allergic "march" where they become allergic to one thing after another There was at least one study done that suggests it helps with atopic eczema. There are other benefits in regard to allergies, but I am not well versed on the subject. Yogurt is supposed to be wonderful for people with allergies too since it naturally contains acidophilus.

Your a gem!
I brought up the thread in case anyone else is interested.
When my kids were young I had them on acidophilus but only after they were on antibiotics(thinking antibiotics rob them of the good bacteria )and acidophilus gives it back.
My kids eat a lot of yogurt but during the winter they do get a lot of colds which wreaks havoc on the good ole asthma.
So, I am going to do something about it and see if they have any luck. It can't hurt, this stuff is safe and if anything, good for you.

Is it stored in the refrigerator?
Does this help your child's immune system?

The Nature's Way Primadophilus for children contains the following:
Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium longum, Lactobacillus rhamnosis and Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Our allergist felt that the Lactobacillus rhamnosis was the most important one.
