Taking probiotics was recommended to me while taking olive leaf to increase the good bacteria in your stomach. Will the probiotics decrease the effectiveness of the olive leaf in any way, or is it fine to take?
It's always good to take probiotics, and I believe olive leaf extract deals with a lot of unwanted gut bacteria, yeasts etc. which have potentially suppressed the growth of the good ones.
It then makes sense to seed your gut with a variety of the good ones that you want to thrive there.
The probiotics will not decrease the effectiveness of the olive leaf. While olive leaf attacks unwanted bacteria, it appears to leave the probiotics alone which is a huge plus compared to antibiotics.
While this effect has been observed with a range of probiotics, it may still be prudent to take the actual doses of each product separately to be sure.
