I've been having digestion issues for about a year (gas, bloat, cramps, diarrhea) and a few months ago, decided to try to tackle them without getting into the whole gastroenterologist thing. The various enzyme pills and probiotics I tried all did "some" good, but not enough good. Recently I decided to give these a try after I saw they were the # 1 pick at ProbioticsReview.com and had been reviewed favorably by quite a few people on Youtube. Not that I necessarily believe review sites or social media influencers, but there does seem to be some legit support for this product out there. Anyway, I've been on these for three days and can say that there has DEFINITELY been an improvement above and beyond other probiotics I've tried. Which is weird, because this one contains basically the same ingredients as another one I have that didn't really work. But whatever. Just have to find the product that works, regardless of what's on the label, right? In conclusion, this seems like a very good product.

Probiotics are beneficial microbes, typically bacteria similar to those normally found in your gut. They help support the balance of the good bacteria. In doing so, they may provide some relief if you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, acute infectious diarrhea and diarrhea associated with antibiotic use or a Clostridioides difficile (C.diff) infection. Some specific probiotics can boost your immunity, fight inflammation and potentially have beneficial effects on cholesterol.
A general recommendation is to choose probiotic products with at least 1 billion colony-forming units and containing the genus Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Bacillus or Saccharomyces boulardii, some of the most researched probiotics. Even then, you may have to delve deeper, as each genus of bacteria encompasses numerous strains that produce different results.
Our probiotic supplements are temperature stable for 2-3 weeks without refrigeration. We have done 2 year temperature stability testing on our probiotics . We overdesign our probiotics so that the loss will not effect the potency indicated on the label. One can travel with our probiotics for 2-3 weeks without refrigeration. It is best however to keep probiotics refrigerated for optimum potency. Below is our 2 year temperature stability study for your information.
Different strains of probiotics can provide different benefits. Research the strain used in your probiotic so you know how it can help your digestive system. Some probiotic strains will be a better fit for your gut health goals than others.
The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics defines "probiotics" as "live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host" . These microorganisms, which consist mainly of bacteria but also include yeasts, are naturally present in fermented foods, may be added to other food products, and are available as dietary supplements. However, not all foods and dietary supplements labeled as "probiotics" on the market have proven health benefits.
Probiotics should not be confused with prebiotics, which are typically complex carbohydrates (such as inulin and other fructo-oligosaccharides) that microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract use as metabolic fuel . Commercial products containing both prebiotic sugars and probiotic organisms are often called "synbiotics." In addition, products containing dead microorganisms and those made by microorganisms (such as proteins, polysaccharides, nucleotides, and peptides) are, by definition, not probiotics.
Probiotics exert their effects usually in the gastrointestinal tract, where they may influence the intestinal microbiota. Probiotics can transiently colonize the human gut mucosa in highly individualized patterns, depending on the baseline microbiota, probiotic strain, and gastrointestinal tract region .
Probiotics also exert health effects by nonspecific, species-specific, and strain-specific mechanisms . The nonspecific mechanisms vary widely among strains, species, or even genera of commonly used probiotic supplements. These mechanisms include inhibition of the growth of pathogenic microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract (by fostering colonization resistance, improving intestinal transit, or helping normalize a perturbed microbiota), production of bioactive metabolites (e.g., short-chain fatty acids), and reduction of luminal pH in the colon. Species-specific mechanisms can include vitamin synthesis, gut barrier reinforcement, bile salt metabolism, enzymatic activity, and toxin neutralization. Strain-specific mechanisms, which are rare and are used by only a few strains of a given species, include cytokine production, immunomodulation, and effects on the endocrine and nervous systems. Through all of these mechanisms, probiotics might have wide-ranging impacts on human health and disease.
Because effects of probiotics can be specific to certain probiotic species and strains, recommendations for their use in the clinic or in research studies need to be species and strain specific [3,5,6]. Furthermore, pooling data from studies of different types of probiotics can result in misleading conclusions about their efficacy and safety.
Certain unfermented foods, such as milks, juices, smoothies, cereals, nutrition bars, and infant and toddler formulas, have added microorganisms. Whether these foods are truly probiotics depends on the microorganism levels they contain when they are eaten, whether they survive intestinal transit, and whether their specific species and strains have health effects.
The potential health benefits of probiotics are the focus of a great deal of scientific research. This section focuses on research on the use of probiotics to prevent or treat seven health conditions: atopic dermatitis, pediatric acute infectious diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, hypercholesterolemia, and obesity.
Numerous probiotic studies have evaluated the effects of various species and strains of bacteria on the prevention of atopic dermatitis, and several meta-analyses have synthesized the findings of these studies. These studies and meta-analyses show that exposure to probiotics during pregnancy and in early infancy might reduce the risk of developing atopic dermatitis in children. For example, a 2018 meta-analysis included 27 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and one controlled cohort study in a total of 6,907 infants and children exposed to probiotics in utero for 2 weeks to 7 months (via maternal oral supplementation) and/or by oral administration to the infants after birth for 2 to 13 months . Between ages 6 months and 9 years, probiotic treatment with single strains or mixtures that included Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and Propionibacterium strains significantly reduced the risk of atopic dermatitis from 34.7% in the control group to 28.5% in the probiotic group.
Subgroup analyses showed that the use of probiotics during both the prenatal and postnatal periods significantly reduced the incidence of dermatitis; however, probiotics taken either prenatally only or postnatally only did not. In addition, the effects of probiotic treatment varied by probiotic strain. For example, supplementation with either Lactobacillus rhamnosus or Lactobacillus paracasei significantly reduced the incidence of atopic dermatitis, whereas supplementation with Lactobacillus reuteri or Lactobacillus acidophilus did not.
Most published meta-analyses have shown that probiotics slightly reduce atopic dermatitis symptoms in infants and children. For example, a meta-analysis of 13 RCTs with a total of 1,070 participants aged 18 years or younger found that probiotic treatment for 4 to 8 weeks of those with atopic eczema significantly reduced SCORing Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD) values, indicating reduced symptom severity . Subgroup analyses found probiotics had protective effects in children aged 1 to 18 years (nine trials) but not in infants younger than 1 year (five trials). In addition, treatment with Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus fermentum, or a mixture of probiotic strains, significantly reduced SCORAD values in the children, whereas Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Lactobacillus plantarum had no effect.
Another meta-analysis included 8 randomized clinical trials with a total of 741 participants from birth to 36 months of age who were treated with Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium for 4 to 24 weeks. The results also suggested that probiotics containing Lactobacillus might reduce atopic dermatitis symptoms in infants and toddlers, but those containing Bifidobacterium did not . The treatment significantly improved symptoms in participants with moderate-to-severe forms of the disease but not in those with mild forms. A Cochrane review of 39 RCTs of single probiotics and probiotic mixtures for the treatment of eczema in 2,599 participants aged 1 to 55 years (most were children) found that probiotic treatment might slightly reduce SCORAD scores. However, the researchers concluded that the differences were not clinically significant and that the current evidence does not support the use of probiotics for eczema treatment . 781b155fdc
