This is for those of you seeking reliable information on how to choose probiotics that will help you achieve good health – acutely useful during this pandemic. It’s an article by Dr David Williams, a respected expert on nutritional supplements.


The term ‘probiotics wasn’t even in use when Dr Williams first began studying digestive health. “During his early travels, he experienced firsthand the digestive health benefits of lactic acid yeast and traditional fermented foods. Always eating and drinking what the locals ate and drank, yet rarely suffering from “tourista,” Dr. Williams became convinced that the fermented foods and drinks of the native cultures—along with the bottle of lactic acid yeast that he never left home without—helped protect and even promote his digestive health. As early as 1989, Dr. Williams devoted an entire issue of his Alternatives newsletter to the importance of bacterial balance, documenting the myriad health benefits of good bacteria in his seminal article ‘The Key to Solving a Thousand Problems’.” (Williams, 2019)
