Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Is there a protocol for using the Living Streams Product Line?


A:  Yes and No! All the products are beneficial. All the products are needed for different reasons in the body for restoring your good health.

Use the following guidelines to determine where to start:

1. If you are battling an infection and want to strengthen your immune system to fight off the infection, you can safely begin with Living Streams Probiotic.

2. If you have had the infection a long time and are working with a natural health care provider, you may want to consider adding the LS Derma Gold if you are able.

3. If you are not currently having health problems and want mineral support in a probiotic form, you would benefit from Living Minerals Probiotic.

4. If you are concerned about heavy metals, the Zeolife would be a good choice.



Q:  If I am using more than one of the probiotic formulas, what is the easiest way of taking the product?

A:  Most people do not drink enough water to flush toxins out of the body and rebuild hydration. We are made of water and most of us are dehydrated. We recommend drinking at least 3 quarts of water (healthy water, not from tap) a day MINIMUM if you want the maximum results from taking our probiotics. People generally think that increasing the dosage of the probiotics is better, when actually drinking more water would work better for them. 

Because our probiotics are completely compatible with each other, the easiest way to take them is to put them in your daily water ration. You have a continuous supply of the enzymes going through your system as you eat, take supplements, exercise and generally live your unique lifestyle. This makes it easy. 

Take the probiotics out of the refrigerator, dispense into the water or water/bottles and make sure you drink all your water. What could be simpler? This also works well with children who go off to school or a babysitter. They won’t even know what is in their water. 

Our probiotics energize water, making it easier to increase the hydration of your cells.

Q:  How do I take Living Streams Probiotics if I am at work or on vacation and have to keep it refrigerated?

A:  Living Streams Probiotic keeps best refrigerated, however, transferring some into a small bottle to use at work or while on vacation is fine. The fact that it isn't refrigerated for a short period of time won't affect the potency.  The only exceptions are Flora PM, Alfalfa Probiotic, and Moringa as the taste of the product will become disagreeable if not kept refrigerated.



Q:  How long will Living Streams Probiotic keep unrefrigerated?

A:  Living Streams Probiotic can be safely kept unrefrigerated in moderate temperatures, below 105 degrees, for short periods of times (2-4 weeks).  However, we recommend it be kept refrigerated where possible to maintain the potency and shelf life of the product.  



Q:  Are there any side-effects from taking Living Streams Probiotic? 

A:  There can occasionally be some degree of "die-off" caused by Living Streams products.  This is a term used when the body is overwhelmed by a change to the system and it is trying to clear itself of toxins.  "Die off" reactions can include headache, diarrhea, sluggishness, etc. If this occurs, you are moving too fast and should decrease your application till symptoms subside. Always follow the directions on the bottle.



Q:  What type of bacteria are used to create the Living Streams Probiotics?

A:  Living Streams probiotics only contain organic lab certified bacteria species that are naturally found in the human body, and do not contain bacteria obtained from soil microbes.



Q:  What are probiotic CFU's?

A:  CFU stands for colony forming units.  The LIVE and active CFU rating for Living Stream Probiotics is 70 to 90 million per ML.  Many companies advertise very high CFU ratings, however, this does not mean they are all alive or will survive in the digestive tract.  Living Streams Probitoics are developed in a special way in a liquid format making them more effective and completely bioavailable to the body.  Many companies in the USA and Europe have attempted to produce a liquid probiotic but have failed.



Q.  Why are liquid probiotics more effective than powered probiotics?    

A.  Listen to Wayne Blakeley the manufacturer of Living Streams Probiotics talk about this. Click here.

Q.  Can Living Streams Probiotics be shipped during the summer months?
