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!

Kjøpte denne på tilbud. Bruker probiotika hver dag, merket ikke noe forskjell m denne. Små kapsler som er lett å svelge. Fornøyd!

too expensive, I didnt realise I was only getting 7 tablets per bottle. I didnt read the description properly before I ordered! The product is probably great.

It worked well for me in trying to balance out long term antibiotic use. I really appreciated the opportunity to sample Healthy Origins Probiotics for a week in order to decide if the full size would be right for me. I alternate my probiotics as different strains benefit different issues, but this is definitely one I will order in my rotation from now on. :)
