Best Pro-Biotic I've Found

Posted by Reviewer1642690 on Apr 08, 2008

This is my favorite nutritional supplement. It tastes great, it has all my favorite strains of probiotics, includes soil based organisms, and some really healthy green foods. On this product I've gone from a bowel movement every other day, or once every three days, to twice a day (immediately upon using it). I hope they never stop making it.

There are more intestinal bacteria than cells in the body. Putting the balance in favor of the "friendly" will make everything healthy, happy and alive. The value is tremendous. Remember to take on an empty stomach to get the best results.

Great quality, better price

Posted by Reviewer1125289 on May 28, 2009

Great pro-biotic filled with extra nutrients. To me it works better than its Garden of Life equivalent, and with a much better price. Helps keep candida at bay.
