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 product contains 8 strains of probiotics though 80% of the 30 billion CFU are split equally among the 2 well-known strains - Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis. It is good to have as many strains of probiotics as pos sible as each strain works differently. Note that it is shelf stable at 70 °F or 21 °C so any higher in temperature will require refrigeration. The product does contain magnesium stearate. Whether there is any health effects from magnesium stearate like claimed, it is highly debateable. The caps are vegetarian, not too big and easy to swallow. This product also does not contain any prebiotics (food for probiotics to grow) and you might want to supple that too. Any important point to note is that it does not state whether it is 30 billion CFU at time of manufacture or 30 billion CFU at time of expiration date. This is important as probiotics are live and died over time as well. Considering that 99% of probiotics products is the former, I would as sume that this is the former as well. You might get bloating, gas or diarrhea initially as the bacteria compete for space. ‘Bad bacteria’ tends to release toxins when they die. The benefits of using probiotics are long term so it is highly recommended to buy a bigger size for use. Check out my page for more reviews!
This product contains magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide. Even though these ingredients aren't some dangerous carcinogens, they can still be pretty harmful. Magnesium stearate is a lubricant used to prevent capsules from sticking to each other or the equipment being used, which creates a biofilm in the body and blocks the body from absorbing the necessary nutrients. Silicon dioxide can lower blood sugar and is dangerous for people suffering from diabetes, can lead to thiamin (vitamin B1) deficiency and dehydration and dangerously low pota ssium levels, if taken with diuretics. Overall, this product is not that bad, but there are better probiotics out there.
Happy with purchase

I just wanted to try these to see if they helped with the digestive issues I have been suffering with recently and although I have been taking other supplements to help, I do feel that these helped as I have felt better since taking them. I only purchased 7 as a trial size but will purchase a bigger quantity as I do believe that probiotics are essential to gut health.

big capsulles but good

Why do we need such a big bottle for 7 caps? I know this is trial size, but that bottle with 7 caps looks ridiculous and takes up space. Did not do anything for me, but that is to be expected from using it for such a little time.
great capsules full of goodness

Product is great to take as the capsules are small, and effective. With all the current focus on our gut microbiome its perfect.

High quality product, on 3rd day I felt better. This 7 caps are enough for starting gut bacterial colonisation. So I can recommend it after every antibiotics, infectious diarhoea, and as a support terapy for any allergy.
