      I find this worked very well to quickly get the probiotics into your system, and it detoxi your body from things inside you don't know is there. I love it it helped when I was suffering with a bad case of yeast infections. I would continue using it.

          This is simply an amazing product. I first bought it as I was going through chemo treatment for breast cancer.I was diagnosed with stage 3 at 31 years of age. I was reading EVERYTHING that I could on staying healthy through the process and of course I came across the Jordin Rubin story. Suprisingly enough the products are awesome. This product helps quell any stomach issues FAST. It helps boost my energy and my overall feling of well being. It also helps me to regularly use the bathroom and digest heavy meals without any problems. GREAT PRODUCT if you have any stomach issues or irregularity issues.

              I had C. Difficile 8 years ago from taking antibiotics without supplementing with a high quality probiotic and it literally almost killed me (at age 30!) After 3 months in hospital and docs waiting on a blood transfusion and/or experimental fecal transfusion (YUCK!), I saught naturopathic advice. She put me on this probiotic as well as other things.. and literally within 5 days I could tell I was getting better..within 3 weeks I was well with no nasty transfusions! This has been a staple in my family since..first signs of tummy bugs, acid reflux, constipation etc.. This is WORTH the $$. It helped save my life. We've cured giardia from river water by doing nothing else but taking this and have no other problems in our family of 5 with antibiotics bc we ALWAYS use this while taking them.. I highly recommend this product to everyone who has IBS, Diverticulitis, or any Digestive issues!!!!

                  I've had stomach problems my whole life (gas, constipation, etc) and after my 2nd child was born I added heartburn to the bill. This product has helped with all of these problems. The only cons for me are the price (but I could be paying the same amount for a prescription), and the fact that my body notices right away if I haven't taken it for the day. Otherwise I have nothing but good things to say about this product.

                      I believe all health starts in the GI tract. And if you've taken antibiotics over the years like me for acne or whatever - it gets your intestinal flora out of whack. These are amazing, my gas and bloating is gone. I feel so much lighter, and it has even improved my energy and skin. Stool is consistently normal each day at around the same time, and I can eat what I want!

                          My daughter is lactose intolerant and has IBS. This product restored her digestive system. She can eat practically anything she wants now. This is a wonderful product. Never take antibiotics without taking this as well.

                                  I have been giving this to my daughter for over a year now to prevent colds and other bugs - I read a scientific article that said it probiotics and especially more than type in a box, worked in preventing children from catching colds or shortened their duration if they got them - and so far so good. No colds, no stomach viruses for her even though her class and school went through a couple of waves :)
