I would never have believed it if you had told me this stuff would do this - but for me it did. I was able to stop taking antibiotics for my acne. I've had acne problems that nothing other than antibiotics has been able to clear up for years. After running out of the latest antibiotic and not being able to get a hold of my doc, I decided to try taking these pro-biotics instead (my boss had given them to me because he had started them and was impressed, and I was planning to give them to my dogs), and amazingly, my skin is as clear if not clearer than it was with antibiotics. Amazing.
When trying to find a product that improved my constant fight with blemishes and systic acne at age 30 from what I suspect is caused by leaky gut -- this is the ONLY suppliment that made a difference.
I've tried them all.

This is the best probiotic formula I've found. I take two-to-four a day and have no more GI problems. Several years ago my son took a much higher does to address leaky gut and related problems (on his naturopath's suggestion), and it worked very well over time. This is the probiotic I'll keep buying.

The best probiotic I have used so far ! [38 years] No refrigeration required.
Got these in May. Testing them in August = poor

I did not test these when they first arrived. If you order them, be sure to do a milk test when you first open them to be sure the culture is active. I tested them using the overnight milk test and they did show a little activity, but not much. The problem is that out of the 13 strains that are supposed to be in them I have no idea which ones are active. Bacillus subtilis, for example, forms spores and is probably active but you would not want it without the other strains to balance the populations.
VERY good probiotic

I first tried Primal Defense several years ago after learning about it through Dr Mercola and with a history of IBS and food allergies, had very good luck with it maintaining my digestive health. I recently had persistent digestive issues come back so decided to try it again, and within 2 days all symptoms were gone. Recommend highly!!
