Hi Sky
So sorry about the late response, you have possibly given up on me by now.
Probiotics will not stop reflux per se’. Certain probiotics such as L.reuteri has however been shown to be active against H.pylori, the bacteria that is associated with ulcers. If the GERD is potentially linked to this you may experience some relief. Refer to references at www.biogaia.com.
