Products for bacteria imbalance

Hi all. I have been following the low carb high fat diet for almost 2 weeks. The belief behind it is that you starve the bad bacteria of sugars and starches to eliminate it. I have stuck to the diet strictly but have not noticed any difference. I am currently taking Bimuno and have tried various probiotics as well but this has not helped either.

Is there any products anybody can recommend fir bacteria imbalance? Thanks in advance.

Symprove has been proven to have some affect as the bacteria in it can survive the stomach acid. Yakult helps me stop Constipation I have just one a day. Optibac probiotics have a lot of info on their website which is helpful and may help you choose the right type depending on whether you have constipation on diarrhea or a mixture of these in your type of IBS. I would try one at a time of the probiotics - as you have to let your stomach adjust and see if it helps. Then stick to that one if it helps !
