    I noticed Amazon has a new product, "Pure L. Sakei Probiotic Powder 10 Billion+ CFU/gm" by Apothex Nasobiotex.

    Has anyone tried it?

    I've just placed an order, and will be trying it out to see if it helps my chronic sinusitis better than daily sinus rinses and nasal sprays (which do help significantly, but are not as effective as they used to be).

    According to the manufacturer, this can be stored in the freezer for up to 5 months. It is only available for shipping in the USA.

    Crap. This is what I have been looking for but it doesn't ship to Canada. :emoji_disappointed:

    Make sure you tell us how you get on. There's a whole family here that would be interested.

    So far I've noticed a considerable improvement in my sinus congestion, and can sleep at night without sinus rinses for the first time in a decade.

    However, a number of products have been beneficial short term (zinc comes to mind), only to stop working after a couple weeks. I need something long term.

    If it's still working in a couple weeks, then I'll be more convinced of its efficacy.

    It's my understanding that it has to be taken regularly in order to be effective. Not sure if that means daily, but it's found in healthy sinus passages, and I would guess that if your nose starts running more than usual or you sneeze a few times, that may reduce the number of bacteria and might need to be replaced.

    Another strain that helps a lot with dust-related allergies is l. plantarum:

    This is one that's also recommended and used by several from the lacto-bacto site. It's sold for making sausages(!), but contains the same l. sakei (along with another strain).

    Just to clarify, this is a brand new product which only contains L. Sakei and not the other strain. This isn't the sausage product.

    I wouldn't recommend the sausage product for sinus issues. But do your own research first.

    Thanks, Danny. Unfortunately it doesn't ship to Canada. Anything that needs cold storage they won't ship because of having to go through customs. It can sit in customs for several days and won't be any good by the time the shipment is received. :(

    Yeah! I found a company in Canada that sells this. I've placed an order, but now I have to wait and see if they will ship to western Canada. Fingers crossed!!!! :nailbiting:

    I would probably try the other one first, but before that came out, quite a few people were using the Bactoferm on the lacto-bacto site, apparently with success. I hesitated not only because of zilcho $$ in the cookie jar, but because yeah...it just seemed like I might start making my own nasal sausages.

    I know, not a good image to leave you with. Sorry. :)

    They have shipped it! I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high as nothing has worked so far over the past 26 years. But I'm excited to have something new to try. :emoji_fingers_crossed:

    While I don't like the idea of having to use this product because it isn't 100% l sakei, I'm desperate for something that will help with my sinus issues. If pure l sakei was available in Canada, of course I'd purchase that instead. As it isn't used long term I'm willing to take the risk. I've been fighting with this for the past 26 years and have lost too much time to Chronic Sinusitis. I'm sick of feeling half dead for months as a time. :dead:
