Alternative medications

I have been to see a functional medicine practitioner. She has recommended I take Kap Arrest made by Biotics research, for inflammation and GI Revive ( Designs for Health ) " to support gut membrane health") As well as a low carb diet.
Does anyone have knowledge or experience of either of these products please ? I am a bit wary of taking them without more information.

Also I have had a stool assessment via this same person which shows I have a lot of klebsiella and also candida Krusei. It seems sensible to try and eliminate these and I really do think that could benefit my overall gut health. But again I am wary of taking antimicrobials in case they do more harm than good.

Does anyone have any experience of dealing with either of these pathogens please ?

I'd be grateful for any help at all with this
