HealthForce Nutritionals, Friendly Force, The Ultimate Probiotic, 120 Vegan Caps29 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

"Hype is nothing. Substance is everything. Health is important, and too many things usually get in the way of people actually taking an authentically powerful product. Loyalties can be divided. I want to make it clear where mine lies. My loyalty is to those who want to thrive, and those whose life situation requires them to thrive. My loyalty is to the end user. My loyalty is to you. In my life now, and one day when I look back upon my life, that will have value to me incomparable to any amount of money, investors, or fame."

Probiotics are one of the most important supplements that are often ignored. About 70% of our immune system is in our entire digestive system (mouth to anus). Probiotics work by ‘crowding’ outthe ‘bad’ bacteria in our body. The healthy gut generally consists of 90-95% of ‘good’ bacteria. However due to widespread use of antibiotics as drug and in food (from meat) and chlorine in the water, the structure of our microflora is constantly disrupted, allowing the ‘bad’ bacteria to dominate. This leads to depleted and overstres sed immune system, bloating, gas, diarrhea and as well as toxins released by the ‘bad’ bacteria. Therefore it is strongly need to supply with probiotics daily. Other than overwhelming the ‘bad’ bacteria in numbers, the ‘good’ bacteria are also known to produce 90% of our daily need of vitamin B complex, vitamin K, enzymes to digest food and boost our immunity. This is absolutely the best probiotics in the market! It guarantees full potency until expiration date! 99% of probiotics products can only guarantee the potency at time of manufacture! They probably lose partially or all potency before expiration date. Each capsule contains 25 billion (high potency, compared to those 1 billion), contains prebiotics (food for probiotics to feed and grow), very gentle (does not causes gas or discomfort for me), no junks like flow agents/binders/fillers, shelf stable, Truganic (Healthforce’s own more stringent version of organic), is vegan (no gelatin or produced from animal products) and enhanced through magnetic, homeopathic and vibrational (important health fields that are often ignored). Pricewise this is definitely value for money if you are taking 1-2 daily (enough imo). I like that Healthforce Nutritionals uses glas s bottles that are eco-friendly, does not leech gas ses, and protect the ingredients from air (airtight metal lid compared to plastic caps), UV light (due to dark shade) and heat. This is the only probiotics that I can actually feel like it is working in my guts! Check out my page for more reviews!
I have been reading more about probiotics and their role in digestive health and immunity and wanted to try this product as I have had good experiences with other Healthforce products in the past. I have especially liked Vitamineral Green and Vitamin C powder and found them to be of exceptional quality. Unfortunately, I didn't have such a great experience with this product. After taking 2-4 capsules per day for about a week, I began to notice small cystic acne developing on my cheeks. I haven't had that problem for many years and wasn't sure what the cause was at first. My diet and other factors in my life were basically the same as they had been and I couldn't identify what the cause was. I continued to take this product for another 2 weeks and found increasing skin breakouts all over my cheeks. It was very unexpected and troubling for that to happen. I began to have an intuition that these may be playing some role in my skin problems. I did some research online and discovered several articles and responses by others who had also experienced probiotics leading to skin breakouts and other problems. After reading these articles and responses, I stopped using this product entirely. Since I stopped taking this product, my skin has gone back to the way it was before and my previous breakouts are healing. I can't say there is a definite cause and effect relationship between my skin problems and this product, but I also think there may have been an issue with one of the types of probiotics or other ingredients. Perhaps I was intolerant to some of the ingredients or the level or probiotics disrupted something in my digestive track. I've also read that some probiotics might enter the bloodstream if a person has a problem with absorption and the body may develop an immune response. I've also considered that this may have been a healing reaction to a deeper problem, but ultimately I didn't notice enough of a positive result from taking these for a few weeks to make me feel it was worth it to go through increasingly severe skin reactions. Regardless, I won't purchase these again. I still think Healthforce is a great company and this product will probably work fine for others. They just weren't the best for me.
