you may be taking too much. But i just posted a similair thread....probiotics actually increase stomach acid, so i am now hesitant to give them to my son. i dont get why probiotics are recommended for gerd if they increase stomach acid.
this is what i am referring to:
BIFIDOBACTERIUM BIFIDUM/LACTIS (BB-12)
Bifidobacterium bifidum (recently identified as B. lactis) is the most prominent microorganism strain setting up residence and implanting itself in the lining of the large intestine. B. bifidum is known for producing acetic and lactic acids, which lowers the pH. (increases the acidity) of the intestine.
