An interesting soil based probiotic

Posted by Reviewer2776030 on Jan 17, 2017

This fixed my dog's bowels pretty quickly. From what i've read of this probiotic - a soil based probiotic - it is quite exceptional. It survives the harsh environment of the gut. So then I tried it myself since it is sourced from human grade supplies. Well, it seems to have improved my gastric issues as well! Even at such a low dose. I read that side effects of this supplement are increased bloating etc until the digestive tract re-orchestrates its bacterial makeup. I have noticed some ill effect too in response to this but will rethink it after the full two weeks it takes to reorganise the gut. If all good I will shop for the human version :)
