    Mark is in kidney failure with a spastic colon, Deborah has a hypersensitive colon from a vehicle accident and hypersensitive to gluten; both needed some help with calming the intestines. Dr. recommended a probiotic. We tried 50 Billion bacteria to 3 Billion - different manufacturers and brands, w/and w/o other ingredients, stated gluten free, sugar fee, etc. After 2.5 years of a trial period, a friend recommended this product. Value & function right on target!! BOTH of us have resolved the colon issues. Although this product states (2) capsules per day for serving size, as our physician said: since you are taking it every night (when it can work the best - in rest mode), you do not have to take 2 caps (1200 mg). Every night take 1 cap (600 mg) per day so as not to "overuse" or build a tolerance in forming good bacteria, plus this allows your own system to stay active naturally. Long and every day use does not have to be both caps - so this product just became even more affordable and economical. However, every system is different, so if 1 cap does not work for you, take the 2 caps. However, try the 1 cap at night FIRST for at least 60 days. You should "feel" the difference!! You should become better regulated in bowl movements, bloating/gas and colon irritability decreased, and healthier all the way around. Like said, we tried a huge variety and now stick with this one...hope it helps you as it has BOTH of us-and we are 2 extremely different colon systems!

    I took a lot of these while sick, and developed a sensitivity to probiotics. My health practitioner tested it and told me she thought a lot of the bacteria in this product were dead, therefore they were detrimental to my system rather than helpful. Made me unsure about their quality control.

          This product was a miracle when I was suffering from heartburn. I tried every prescription and OTC product on the market. Nothing worked. I bought the P.B. 8 and took a dose in the parking lot of the store. 15 minutes later, the heartburn was gone. I take this twice a day now and I have been heartburn free for 7 months. I highly recommend.

            I've been using this product for years ever since my G.I. doctor put me on it. It will definitely help if you have to take antibiotics, and my doctor says more of the cultures survive the trip in these capsules than in yogurt.

            This has been my go-to probiotic for years and I have shared it and the good with my son's family. I like the convenience - no refrigeration needed - because it was easy to remember when I saw it there inthe kitchen counter. When my son and daughter-in-law had some digestive issues, I sent them PB-8 and they were very pleased with the way it worked. Always good to see results!

                  I was introduced to this brand of Probiotics after I had my first Colonic.it really works! It cleanses the colon getting rid of fecal matter that has lined the walls of the colon for years. What comes out of you will shock you. A side benefit is : weight reduction . I cannot recommend this product to anyone, I can only say how I have been benefitted.

                    I use probiotics to control gas. I have been taking probiotics for years. I tried this manufacturer because the price was enticing. You get what you pay for. My gas came back while using these. Also, my wife had to take antibiotics which kill all the bacteria in your intestines. There was no difference from these. I believe the bacteria in mine were dead. Poor quality control I am going back to the vitamin shoppe brand. I have never had that problem from them.

                              I started using this about 25 years ago as I struggled with Candida. My health food store lady recommended it and it has done very well. I use it daily and then when I feel a cold coming on I take one (if my throat is sore I open the capsule and let the ingredients dissolve in my mouth and it helps the sore throat go away) along with 1000 or 200 mg of Vitamin C every two hours per my health food store lady and I am able to stay well and not get colds or flu. It helps my digestion and general health.

                                    I take this product once daily for intestinal health. I've tried many like products in the past, and hoped they were working. I finally went to a nutritionist, and this is the product recommended. I purchased my first bottle in a health food store, was instructed in its use, and away I went. I INSTANTLY saw a difference. Although I'm not on a lot of medications per se, I am of an age that I take calcium supplements which can be harsh on the stomach. No more problems!!! The only thing that might put someone off is the fact that it needs to be refrigerated (it is, after all, a live culture!!) It's easy to take---a gel coating makes it slide right down. The value of purchasing this through this company is substantial.

                                            I have been using this probiotic for years. I got a friend to use it too. I have stayed healthier and more regular for it, and so has my friend and her family. I have less issues with yeast as well. I give one to my kids in a small cup of juice daily. I store mine in the fridge for maximum freshness. The price and quality can't be beat with this probiotic and the Vitamin Shoppe. Thank you to both!

                                            I've been using this product for about 8 years now.
                                            Can't say enough about it, keeps my system in good shape. Have tried other probiotics but don't get same result. Many more expensive, with less effect.
                                            Have my whole family on them, I am daily user, kids use when belly issues. Always solves the problems and keeps eveything in good balance. I take morning and right before bed.

                                                  I bought this for my daughter who was getting several yeast infections yearly. I started using it also because of all the good comments and reviews and would not stop taking it on a daily basis now. My daughter has not had a yeast infection since she started taking it and I feel great. I have psoriasis and my skin has been doing great and intestinal tract since I started taking it. My youngest daughter went off to college this year and came home a month later begging me to get her some PB8 because she started getting pain while urinating. My girls and I have been taking this for 2 years now and will continue forever.

                                                    Works well with enzymes. Taking a lot of protein and carbs while over 40 I needed some assistance with the proper digestion. This did the trick.

                                                      I started using this product about 5 months ago and I can see a great improvement in my digestion. I dont feel as bloated all the time. I am having more frequent bowel movements and less bloating.

                                                      Mark is in kidney failure with a spastic colon, Deborah has a hypersensitive colon from a vehicle accident and hypersensitive to gluten; both needed some help with calming the intestines. Dr. recommended a probiotic. We tried 50 Billion bacteria to 3 Billion - different manufacturers and brands, w/and w/o other ingredients, stated gluten free, sugar fee, etc. After 2.5 years of a trial period, a friend recommended this product. Value & function right on target!! BOTH of us have resolved the colon issues. Although this product states (2) capsules per day for serving size, as our physician said: since you are taking it every night (when it can work the best - in rest mode), you do not have to take 2 caps (1200 mg). Every night take 1 cap (600 mg) per day so as not to "overuse" or build a tolerance in forming good bacteria, plus this allows your own system to stay active naturally. Long and every day use does not have to be both caps - so this product just became even more affordable and economical. However, every system is different, so if 1 cap does not work for you, take the 2 caps. However, try the 1 cap at night FIRST for at least 60 days. You should "feel" the difference!! You should become better regulated in bowl movements, bloating/gas and colon irritability decreased, and healthier all the way around. Like said, we tried a huge variety and now stick with this one...hope it helps you as it has BOTH of us-and we are 2 extremely different colon systems!

                                                          I took a lot of these while sick, and developed a sensitivity to probiotics. My health practitioner tested it and told me she thought a lot of the bacteria in this product were dead, therefore they were detrimental to my system rather than helpful. Made me unsure about their quality control.

                                                              Just looked up on Consumer Lab site and they said that it found only 56.8% of listed probiotic organisms so you essentially need to take twice as much to reach the level claimed on the label.

Go into the cart and see if you can edit the cart and remove one of the items. Hope this helps!
