Gr8-Dophilus inflames my IBS!- Has FOS, inulin, and dairy... Found a good one...!
Posted by Reviewer2256537 on Feb 26, 2011
GR8 probiotic agreed with me with me until I came down with IBS/lactose intolerance, after taking antibiotics. Grrr! Now GR8 causes BAD gas, and diarrhea!- It's FOS, inulin, dairy, are BAD for my IBS...! Found a GOOD inexpensive probiotic at Iherb!- I switched to PB 8 Probiotic for Life "Vegetarian" caps/14 million daily!- No FOS, inulin, soy, or dairy. Per Many Health websites for my IBS.../Really settles stomach, and lose weight too!- I also started sipping 2tbs of &quot;organic unprocessed&quot; Apple Cider Vinegar with a big glass of water 3x daily (+ Stevia helps cover taste). I also sip it (don't chug) deep in mouth through a straw, for teeth health...

Took the whole bottle; did not notice any help with gas, bloating, improved digestion or smoother elimination. This has only 4 billion organisms per cap; the one that works for me in kick-starting a healthy elimination has 30 billion. Go figure!
the bacteria are dead

I've check this product, but the bacteria are dead. I like NOW very much, but not this

i have used acidophilus in the past (for urinary tract infections) with great success. i tried these hoping for at least the same, if not better results. no such luck. i will be going back to acidophilus.
Nothing for me...

This product did nothing to help rid my body of the bad bacteria (ie- candida). All it did was make me constipated. Just to be sure I even finished 2 bottles of it...I'm sticking with Dr. Ohirra's even though it's almost 4 times the price. You get what you pay for when it comes to probiotics!
Gr8 - am not convinced

It does not seem to matter at what time of the day (ie empty stomach, just before meal)I take these I always seem to end up with gas and to be honest my digestion seems to be actually happier without them. I don't know if its the FOS or what it is but they do not agree with me so I won't be buying them again.

Beats me why you would have a probiotic with trace amounts of gluten.
did nothing for me

Not only did I not get any benefits from this probiotic, but while on it my bowel habits became worse.The fact that it has to be taken on an empty stomach was also a problem for me, as I eat 5-6 small meals per day (every 2-3 hours) so I'm hardly ever on an emty stomach.I have tried at least a dozen of different brands of probiotics and this was the most disappointing.I guess, the so many positive reviews, prove that probiotic supplementation is very individual.I am sure it works for others.
Not good for me, my nurse, or my dog!

I am a quadriplegic and I have a nurse with several health problems (diverticulitis being one of them). I bought these based on the 5-star reviews ( unfortuntely, I bought 4 bottles) and they make everything worse. For some reason, my nurse and i both noticed that we weren't thirsty, and had to force ourselves to drink water, which could explain the horrible constipation that we suffer. She had horrible abdominal pains, but we hoped it was just the probiotic eliminating the bad stuff. (We should've realized that in order to eliminate, you need to go poop)! Anyway, hasn't helped either of us in any way in 4 weeks. Don't waste your money like I did.
Doen't agree with my system
