Seed Probiotics – After one month, Persistence may occur

I just got my ubiome results today. The sample was taken after one month on Seed Probiotics. I believe that the Seed Probiotics have made a significant positive impact on me, but the impact that I was most hoping for was seeing more lactobacillus AND bifidobacterium being reported.
The answer is, it may.
For new readers, a ME/CFS flare was triggered by work stress around the 12 of March, 2019 — dramatic changes seen across my microbiome (separate posts on these). I am still recovering.

Sample readings
From the last sample (where I had stopped things that I should not have – sampled 04-30) until this time, we see a 10 fold increase in Lactobacillus, but not a single bifidobacterium has appeared. Akkermansia is often associated with these two, so I include it. 2017 and 2018 are from being in apparent remission.

A bit of a roller coaster.

Not a single unit to be seen despite Seed having many species in it

Akkermansia is making some recovery

I will be continuing on with Seed Probiotic and plan to do my next sample in 8 days. I am feeling better and ME/CFS symptoms are reducing — whether that is a natural recovery or impacted by Seed, is a matter for speculation.
Bottom Line
The evidence for Seed persisting is weak. Good evidence would have been both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium to make significant improvement.
Personally, I am happy with it for the bacteriocins (natural antibiotics) appears to be in it. I discovered this the hard way. One night I forgot that I had taken 2 capsules an hour before and took a second dose. It was a rough night.
Some Comments from Facebook on this Post

We will see what next month’s numbers are like.


Have you tried kefir and fermented foods?
Those are random mixtures of bacteria that will vary from one batch to the next. One batch may help and the next make worst. I prefer to know precisely which bacteria that I am taking.
