Best Answer
There is much difference of opinion on probiotics surviving the stomach to make it to the intestines. If you can do some researching, you might come to a conclusion, but it is not easy. Some are enteric-coated, which might have a better chance. Taking on empty stomach with water might help, Taking the contents of the capsule in water without the capsule might help (on empty stomach). My personal opinion is that this type of capsule is not made to survive stomach acid. Good luck in your quest. It is a very good question.

You should contact iHerb directly for that type of question. Look in the upper right top of your web browser and click where it says 24/7 Support.

Yes. I’ve had no problems in that regard. My digestive system has been tip top.
