Are probiotics beneficial when still infected by Helicobacter Pylori and would Kefir be of benefit too?

Probiotics (including Kefir) are very subjective. There is no real scientific evidence that they work. Probably because it is a very complex question and nobody know exactly what happen. Many believes that the probiotics you ingested cannot survive in your body for long. others argue that the antibacterial agents can be released from the dead probiotics and reduce bad bacteria.

Whatever it is, they are all theories. If you feel good, just continue taking it. If you dont feel any improvement, you can stop or change the product.

do they have impact on H. pylori? most probably not.

If you really want to get rid of H. pylori, you will have to use antibiotics. There is very little to no evidence that natural products is able to kill H. pylori in vivo.

Talk to your doctor about Pylera treatment.
