      I am a slender, healthy 56 year old. I exercise regularly. I've never had 'irregularity' or any bowel movement issues. Recently I began having extreme gas/stomach pains and constipation. I didn't even know what Probiotics are! I read the reviews on this product and decided to integrate it into my regular vitamin regime. I take one of these pills (along with many other vitamins) with either breakfast or lunch, and a 2nd pill after dinner. The results are instant and amazing! Within 24 hours my system felt better. I had also been struggling to lose just a few pounds and I believe this Probiotic helps with the weight loss. I've been taking these pills regularly as stated, twice a day, and no more bloating. No more gas pains. Bowel movements are consistent, quick and easy. These Probiotic pills are a dream come true. My system feels great. I am hooked. I highly recommend this product.

      This product contains dairy and soy. I ordered it based on the ingredient listing on the supplement facts, but while that lists the excluded allergens it doen't mentions that it DOES contain dairy and soy. I was somewhat annoyed. Fortunately I only ordered 1, so I gave it to a friend.

        I take this daily and double up when taking antibiotics. It has eliminated the stomach upset related to antibiotics. I don't have the bloating I used to experience.

              I have been using this product for several years and in my opinion I find it
              very effective. As we age our digestive tract requires more help to do it's job.
              I take this twice daily with a meal.Overall I find Vitamin Shoppe brand products to be good value. I like their promotions such as this one where I
              receive extra points for writing a review. It encourages participation
              and involvement.

              I didn't realize this probiotic contained dairy and was unable to use it. The return process was seamless and very easy. I plan to reorder another variety of probiotic that doesn't contain dairy - read ingredient labels carefully!

                        Unfortunately, I couldnt see any benefit from this probiotic. Only the really expensive brands seem to work. I guess I am going to go back to expensive stuff (natren, custom probiotics, etc)

                                      I been using other brand of probiotic for more than 10 years, through Consumer Lab reading
                                      I find out Vitamin Shoppe probiotic has the
                                      life probiotic as they say, and the price is lot more reasonable than the brand I have been using,

                                        I've been taking these for about six months. Sometimes it's hard to tell if supplements are really doing anything but I believe these have helped my gut. I needed to get my digestive system back on track, and I think these probiotics have helped stabilize things a bit.

                                        I have been using the product for the past couple of weeks and at first I didn't really notice a change. I dont know what I was expecting but it did not affect me. About a week into it, I started getting constipated. I have NEVER had this problem before. Normally I am pretty regular. I just wanted a healthier gut. I feel as if my metabolism is dead and thought that eventually it would get things moving.
                                        So Now I am on the fence. Do I stick it out until my body gets used to it? Could it be a potentially wonderful product? or do I quit at this point and eat a yogurt everyday ( I hate yogurt and am not sure how much bacteria is contained in yogurt and how much I have to eat daily to get it to work on my metabolism)

                                            I take one capsule of probiotic a day and my stomach feels much better and did so after just a few days. I have been reading about leaky gut syndrome and believe that it is truly the cause of a lot of illness, especially as we age.

                                              I am a slender, healthy 56 year old. I exercise regularly. I've never had 'irregularity' or any bowel movement issues. Recently I began having extreme gas/stomach pains and constipation. I didn't even know what Probiotics are! I read the reviews on this product and decided to integrate it into my regular vitamin regime. I take one of these pills (along with many other vitamins) with either breakfast or lunch, and a 2nd pill after dinner. The results are instant and amazing! Within 24 hours my system felt better. I had also been struggling to lose just a few pounds and I believe this Probiotic helps with the weight loss. I've been taking these pills regularly as stated, twice a day, and no more bloating. No more gas pains. Bowel movements are consistent, quick and easy. These Probiotic pills are a dream come true. My system feels great. I am hooked. I highly recommend this product.

                                                I have used other similar products before so I began taking two tablets with each meal, then I tapered off some but you can tell a difference right from the beginning. Good product if you have Candida or other intestinal issues.

                                                  I had major surgery for complete lower bowel obstruction back in '09, and was told to always take Culturell from that point on. The cost was so high, I considered discontinuing them altogether. Then I found Ultimate 10 Probiotic... much better price, and results!!! I take 2, twice daily, after my 1st 2 meals. Great product!!!

                                                          I take one capsule every morning and experience no digestive discomfort. I eat a lot of vegetables, especially ones with lots of fiber. Taking this probiotic helps a lot with gas and cramping later on in the day and night. I try to never run out of this product.

                                                            After a Rx for clindamycin i came down with a a C. Difficile infection in my digestive tract. Besides the cramping and fever, I literally couldn't leave my home for fear of severe diarreah (sp?).

                                                            The doctor gave me another Rx for another antibiotic, but, I had it with Rx's. I was using the probiotics everyday as recommended, but, with the C. Difficile I started taking handfuls of the pills throughout the day. So far so good. There are some flare ups but, I just start taking more probiotics and it settles down. This may not work for everyone, but, it works for me.

                                                                This stuff is awesome. I am always skeptical of supplements but decided to try it as I have heard great things about pro-biotics. Ever since I had my gallbladder removed I have had major digestive problems. I started this daily with a regimen of Fiber and I have noticed a huge, positive difference. This is a good product and really helps.

It made me horribly ill! For the first week I was taking it I thought I was coming down with a severe case of the flu. I felt foggy headed, had a horrible headache, and a very stiff and painful neck and back that became completely debilitating. A first I thought it was a coincidence since I had taken other products that had identical ingredients in the past with no issues. However I have stopped and started it three times now, always with these symptoms dissapearing when I stop, and reapearing when I start again. So those with sensitive systems watch out, even if you don't feel you have a problem with any of the listed ingredients!

Spoke w/mgr. of VS and he suggested VS Probiotics Ultmate 10. In 2011 experienced only one sinus infection. Even my doctor asked what I was doing different and I shared. In 2/2012 was diagnosed with one type of Lyme disease. Doctor asked if I was taking a probiotic answered yes. She instructed me to began taking 2 tablets twice daily because I have been on antibiotics daily ever since diagnosed. My digestion is better, have at least 2-3 BM daily. At the start felt better once the probiotics were in my system. Recommend this product to many of my friends and importance of being on probiotics. Product is reasonably priced and has remained at same price since initial purchase. Very, very satisfied with this product.

I found that it works well and lasts longer and fresher to refrigerate it. It is a wonderful product.

I take with the first apple of the day so it travels through the stomach very quickly to miss the stomach acid. It's very helpful for digestion.

I've read that its best to keep probiotics in the freezer to extend their life/potency, since its a 100 day supply for me I figured I'd be better off just keeping them in the freezer while I use them. If you decide not to keep them in the refrigerator then it might be best to go with a lower capsule count size to make sure the last one is as good as the first.

Add a multi enzyme to your regiment to help this along

All I can tell you is that I am somewhat lactose intolerant (ice cream, for instance, causes problems but milk doesn't) and Ultimate 10 Probiotic does not affect me at all.

Which means you need to identify which food makes you unwell. Probiotic will help you if you take antibiotics to not totally destroy your flora

However, he had tried other name brand probiotics, but after using this Vitamin Shoppe product, he doesn't want to ever get any other brand. He said this is the first one that he could really tell that it was working.

The seal on the bottle does nothing to protect it from the temperature. I wouldn't store it in direct sunlight or extreme heat but most room temps are fine.

I don't believe it would hurt any animal as I asked our vet about using it and our dog has kidney problems and she said it was alright.

It has several silica packs in each bottle. This is a very good product. It aids with digestion as well as being an immune booster by putting good back into our gut.
