The weight loss program that recommended the use of these products is not providing accurate, research based information. There is no truth that such supplements "tighten and prevent things from passing through".
For the healthy adult, I would suggest neither products. (since you do not have a medical diagnosis for need of either).
The reasoning is that the bacteria tighten the tight junctions in our intestines to prevent things that are not supposed to pass through the intestinal barrier from passing through into the bloodstream.
But I don't know if this makes sense and was wondering about the benefits of both kinds of probiotics because the lactobacillus bacteria supplement at a health store is very expensive, and a pharmacist recommended that brewer's yeast was a cheaper option.
I am confused and unsure if this is reliable information. I would be grateful for an explanation or clarification, if anyone is knowledgeable about this.
