Re: foul-smelling bowel movements?
I think it is always good to take probiotics either directly , eat yogurt (a good brand is Stonyfield Farm -- it has 4 extra cultures in it) and drink kefir sorta weekly.
The reasons are many -- we take medication that upsets the friendly bacteria that aid digestion including antibiotics and alot of others even birth contol pills , we eat too much salty foods, sugary foods as well as sugary sodas and spicy food. All sodas have been using corn syrup since 1970 --not sugar. The problem with sugar and salt -- is they have long been used to cure and preserve food and too much just has a bad affect on your digestion.
We also eat processed food that contains preservatives, pestacides, growth harmones, herbacides and who knows what else.
All of these things have some affect on our health--- that begins with digestion.
I also take supplements that contain greens foods--- barley & wheat grass, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa and cholorophyll. The one I like and use is called Green Phyters -- from the Vitamin Shoppe.
I take it because I don't think I eat enough dark green veggies in the diet I eat -- at least not daiiy
I know doing all this helps----Harry
