About this app

WHAT is this:
A Practice Tool to Assist with Clinical Decision Making for Appropriate Probiotic Therapy for Your Patients
WHO is the intended user:
This Clinical Guide is designed to translate scientific evidence available for probiotic products to practical, clinically relevant information. It is intended to be used as clinical decision-making tool, enabling clinicians to easily select the appropriate product, dose, and formulation for a specific indication.
WHY is this needed:
Currently, the body of evidence for probiotic interventions is growing along with popular demand for these products. There is evidence to support the use of probiotic products for a variety of indications beyond gut health, however applications and results are strain-specific.
Due to frequent changes in commercial availability of probiotic strains, new published evidence and growing research, an annual review and updates of this Clinical Guide have been conducted since 2008. A general lack of adverse effects attributable to probiotics supports the wide use of these products, but ongoing investigation is recommended.

Very useful app. Reviews indicating product bias are inaccurate. The reason certain probiotics are missing is because their formulations have not been tested to rigorous enough standards to prove their effectiveness. And more strains does not equal better. Probiotics strains are a bit like people. They don't all get along so forcing more together won't always make a better product.

My child pediatrician told me about this. Unfortunately this is marketed by specific companies so there are a lot of probiotics missing and none had 9 strains of probiotics in them. Horrible app ran by specific companies to profit.
