probiotic
When I started to take Probiotics I became dizzy and had brain fog. Possibly, I should switch brands. I am debating on continuing or stopping. I have stopped for a few days, and I do feel better. I have noticed that my desire for sugar is less with the Probiotics that I had been taking. Possibly, it will take time for my body to adjust.
