Arrived on a hot day from UPS, but still seem to have some potency

I remember when they were delivered, the cardboard box from the UPS truck was quite warm. I started to wonder if they were still fully potent. Still, they seem to make a difference in my stools: bulkier, more moist, easier going. (Sorry if that's gross. It's meant to be clinical.) Also, I tried cold fermenting a bowl of of steel milled oat meal in lukewarm water by mixing in the powder from one of these capsules and letting it sit for a day and a half. Then I cooked it. It seemed to work, so there's definitely some live bacteria left. It was kind of like "sourdough oatmeal" if that makes sense.
Cold-pak not very good

I ordered this product and had it shipped 2-day shipping, as was suggested. I had it shipped in a cold-pak. But when it arrived, it was not the least bit cold inside. So I have no idea how good the product is anymore. If you get this product, you best get 1 day shipping.

I really like your product but the second order arrived warm and the only ice pack was also warm. The styrofoam box seems very efficient but maybe it needs more ice packs. We were here when it arrived so it didn't sit outside. I don't remember how many the 1st order had but it was cold. It doesn't seem to be "working" as well either but it is "working".

My husband takes this to help with his IBS, but so far we have not sen a major improvement. To be fair he has not been taking this for very long.
