Having very sulphery,odiferous stools (loose, but attributed to Mag citrate). Was reading this is a possible sign of bacterial overgrowth. Could probiotics cause this? Other causes?KellyParticipantMay 18, 2014 at 5:41 pmPost count: 77
I’m not sure what sulphery would smell like, but I get stinky gas when I eat something that doesn’t agree with me, or too much of something, or even something new. Have you tried anything new recently?KellyParticipantMay 18, 2014 at 5:51 pmPost count: 77
I should add that I’m currently having that stinky gas because I just started a probiotic — strains that Norm himself, IIRC, said were less apt to cause gas. Hopefully that will go away as I get used to it.
So that means a probiotic could also be causing your problem.JIParticipantMay 19, 2014 at 12:08 amPost count: 180
Jaeme, IIRC is short for “if I recall correctly”.JaemeParticipantMay 19, 2014 at 12:45 amPost count: 348

This is the probiotic I have: http://www.iherb.com/Healthy-Origins-Probiotic-30-Billion-CFU-s-60-Vcaps/19518 It has only lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains, which Norm (I think) said are the less likely ones to cause gas. I’ve been having gas, which I’m inclined to think is because they have so many critters. These aren’t enteric coated, but they supposedly survive the stomach acid, and based on my reaction, I believe it.
If you order from this company, use coupon code LDG285 and you’ll get $10 off your first order. I order all my supplements there because they have good prices and free shipping.KellyParticipantMay 24, 2014 at 9:21 pmPost count: 77
Now that I have the book, I discovered that my probiotic does have a strain that Norm specifically noted as capable of producing gas: Lactobacillus casei. There are other strains he doesn’t specify one way or the other.
Another reason I like the company I linked to above, is because they accept returns of unopened supplements within 60 days. 🙂
