I’ve experimented with many different strains for yogurt making before, but more recently some suspected very pleasantly surprising ones. I’ve been taking Optibac’s BB12 (made into a yogurt) https://www.amazon.com/OptiBac-Probiotics-Bifidobacteria-Fibre-Billion/dp/B07NVSFDWJ L. Casei Shirota, and Bio Gaia’s L. Reuteri for the past couple of weeks. Started eating yogurt made from Shirota because of the suggestion of Dr. Davis during this viral pandemic and because it was very cheap ($5) for a supply lasting a very long time or forever. Tried out BB12 as I was under the suspicion that I MAY need more bifidobacteria based on test results and because I just wanted to try a different strain to see how good of a yogurt it made. 

So far, my focus on tasks has been exceptional (I went down a rabbit hole of trying to find out what computer I should buy because the old one just recently died). I spent maybe 3-4 hours looking at different specs one night and not once did I lose track of what I was doing and felt unusually productive (able to figure out a lot in the time period) and very focused.  I also felt very energized, more calm and centered (not that I really have a problem with that, but this made things even better).  What really struck me differently though was that my cyclical hunger (from gut inflammation or other issues?) has been absent for longer than usual (about a week and a half so far vs the mere week or a few days in the past) and satiety signals have been much stronger. Lastly, periods of dramatic visual clarity that can’t be explained by anything else that I can think of other than the probiotics. I’m sure there’s a connection to at least one of the yogurts I’m eating (Shirota or B. Lactis BB12) for all of these interesting effects. Am I beating back SIBO or some variant of dysbiosis in the colon? Do these strains produce vitamins or unique metabolic products that benefit the host? Could it be because of improved barrier function (which has been shown to be the case in vitro for BB12)? I may never know, but I’m certain that one or both of these new strains provided some outsize, even if transient benefits. Yes I realize this is an anecdote and not purely scientific, but still very interesting

TL;DR

Improved metabolism, focus, productivity, stress resistance, better mood and motivation, dramatically improved visual acuity

Yes, that was me. I took the yogurt for my respiratory infection. It may have helped (I’m not sure, since I’m doing a lot of things for it).

Thanks Paola, if the Shaw’s market I never go to indicated by the locator doesn’t have it, I will take you up on that kind offer. It’s about 4 miles away and I’ll check it today.
