    Allicillin is the part of garlic that kills bad bacteria/fungus in the gut... does anyone know if it kills good bacteria, too?

    I´d imagine so, since good and bad bacteria often belong to the same genera. But since most of the world eats it regularly it can´t have too bad an effect. I don´t know if the allicillin is the FODMAP part though.

    Allicillin is definitely okay, FODMAP- wise

    I'm switching up my SIBO protocol (currently FC Cidal + Dysbiocide) to avoid killing good bacteria along w bad... I'll probably go to Allimed (high potency allicillin) + berberine

    Good to know, I might try it at some point, although it would be nice to know exactly which genera of bacteria it effects.

    I stumbled on some info from Ken lassesen that answered my question, and may be of interest to both of you:

    Rifaxamin & allicillin both kill E. coli- which is low in CFS patients to begin with...if you use these, follow w mutaflor

    I don't know what other bugs these 2 kill

    Scroll down to comments section:

    Ps if you don't know who Ken is, he's a CFS patient who has a ton of microbiome research shared on his blog; he's had success putting his own CFS into remission

    EDIT: ken's blog is cfsremission.com

    @ebethc , thank you - I'm pretty sure that blog is where we first learned about Mutaflor a few years ago. It didn't put my husband in remission, but it did make some noticeable improvements in his health overall, so it was definitely worth it.
