    I went on Lactulose last Monday and got good effects from it. I think it was feeding good bacteria and I was actually starting to improve.

    Then I received my Xylitol and when I took 1/2 tsp in water, it caused immediate die off, and it still is. I'm taking 1 tsp + daily, plus using it to coat my teeth. I think I'll quit the lactulose until the Xylitol has had time to take effect.

    I may go on apo lactoferrin in a few days. I hate to try too many new things at once but I'm looking forward to getting better.

    It's amazing that oil of oregano, GSE, garlic, SF722, Biofase, Serrapeptase, all didn't do a thing to me but 1/2 tsp of Xylitol caused immediate die off. I think I must be on to something good now. I guess it attacks biofilm.
    It attracts mold and yeast, they say, then the mold & yeast consume it but can't ferment it, so it dies.

    Where did you get xylitol, can you buy it as 100% powder?

    Thanks

    I buy Xylitol granules to sweeten coffee and tea. I like this brand since it's not derived from corn, but their Xylitol is in granules, not powder:

    AZ and iHerb both have Xylitol powder. I've never heard herxing from it.

    I also use Xylitol toothpaste, the Squigle Tooth Builder brand. It helps sensitive teeth and doesn't contain fluoride.

    I got a 20 oz jar from Pipingrock.com for about $8 + shipping.

    (Made from Birch bark, not corn).

    I never knew it did that. I have xylitol cause I cant have sugar. I thou havent noticed any improvement from the xylitol as such. (there isnt much at all which gives me improvement).

    I get the 2 Litre tubs of xylitol direct from the distributer who used to live locally to me (he then supplies it to the shops, so I get it for the same price as the shops pay for it .. half price or a bit less then that). I get the granule form which looks like sugar and use it in the same way as I would sugar.

    The one I get they say is derived from non-allergic corn cob core (rather then birch, some can be allergic birch).

    I suggest to those who have this to get it in 2L tub rather then then the small containers as its far far cheaper when brought in a bigger amount. eg $60 for 2 litres if buying it in a shop.

    Could you please describe the die off symptoms? I am looking into Lactulose for lowering ammonia and wonder if xylitol would also be of greater help to me.

    Does the powder work as good as the granules?
