  1. A lot of sites write about probiotic brands. What most writers fail to inform is that there are specific bacteria strains that are quite helpful in specific ailments. You did a good job on this.

    • Thank you. At PharmPsych Communications, we only employ experienced writers who possess a MS degree or higher and a strong grasp of the information that they write about.
