Would that be the Renal Advanced powder by Candioli? It's not exactly the same as Azodyl, but uses the same premise that probiotics help "clean up" the nitrogen waste by-products in the intestinal tract. If it is the Renal Advanced, introduce it very gradually by starting with a quarter or less of the recommended dose, then work up over many days (or more) to the full amount. Aztec was taking it for a little while, but honestly, I think a human probiotic from the health food store is a more potent option.
