its peeeple

Pro-biotics: This week I'm on the probiotic bus. For those who may be unfamiliar, probiotics are 'live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host’, which for most of us means eating yogurt. I ran into a nutritionist last weekend who suggested that my acid reflux might be improved if I just tried Activia. Now Activia is Dannon's yogurt health drink which is supposed to do any number of magical things. but the main benefit of Activia is that it reduces long intestinal transit time. Oh really? Wow, that's just what I've always wanted! ughhh...

well, i'll say this. If it helps with the acid reflux, which can be its own small hell, I'll give it a go. And I have been actually, for three days now which no apparent effect (no - not even 'reduced intestinal transit time'). but according to all sources, I have to give it 2 weeks. so we'll see.
