Culturing bought capsule probiotics at home

Postby FilippObada » Sat Jun 20, 2020 4:57 am

Hello guys!

Latelly I've had some intestinal issues with which I found a probiotic that really helps. I think its because of those specific bacteria strains it contains. Other brands dont as well as home made probiotics like Kefir, Kombucha, fermented vegetables and others (I tried it all). The problem is those probiotics Im buying at pharmacy and help are a little expensive. Also I would like to ingest them in a bigger dose in long terms.
That being said, do you think it would be possible to culture the bacteria from one of those capsules at home?
Thank you!
