This probiotic definately works. 'Good bacteria' arrived live and active. I experienced positive changes just after taking first capsule: less bloating, overall improvement in digestion Probiotics of Bifidum group should help with constipation,Lactobacillus rhamnosus will relieve symptoms of urogenital yeast infections My adivice is to take 1 capsule 30-6o minutes before breakfast on empty stomach, avoid hot drinks. It has 7 billions of 8 different strains in each 1 capsule so one a day should be enough. However, you can increase to 2-3 capsules a day if you are taking antibiotics. Allow 2-3 hours between taking antibiotics and probiotics. Another good point- capsules are relatively small and easy to swallow so you don't need to break a capsule which prevents 'good bacteria' from being destroyed by bile and gastric juices. Very young children should take 1 capsule every other day. And finally, include in your diet fermented foods such as sourkraut, kefir,yogurts to help maintain healthy balance of beneficial bacteria that you received after taking this probiotic supplement

I checked this product on the web and it ranked No.1 probiotics that is value for money in 2014. It works great for my dad as he keeps saying it helps with his bowel health. For me the effect is not that obvious.

Magnesium Stearate is better to avoid, because it is a harmful ingredient, especially if it's taken on a daily basis. For some reason the manufacturer does not indicate MAGNESIUM STEARATE in the list of ingredients(on the left side of description). BUT it is INCLUDED in the "proprietary blend" list of ingredients, on the Right side. Otherwise this probiotic is good. But because of Magnesium Stearate I'll try to look for another brand without it.

Supposedly probiotics have to be stored cold to keep the bacteria alive. Tried culturing a few in warm milk. A good batch could cultivate into yoghurt. This was hit and miss for me. About 20 percent active

Frankly I am not able to tell whether it is good or not but I assume it is good since it has been recommended by a reputable person.

This is a good probitic blend. Of course, like with herbal products, you need to take it for a longer period - if you expect imminent results, you won't get them. The best is to use it interchangeably with other products.
