"These probiotics give me great benefits and they're so easy -- no refrigeration needed. I include a capsule with my other daily vitamins and can take them to work or to a restaurant without worrying about losing the good effects because they don't have to be a certain temperature. The price is right and shipping is super fast."
"This capsule is 23mm long and 7mm wide (or 15/16 inches long and 5/16 inches wide). I have terrible trouble swallowing pills, and as you know, if you destroy the enteric coating on probiotics, the bacteria will be destroyed in your stomach, never getting to the small intestine where they can do their work. I can swallow these. They are smooth too. Other probiotic capsules have been just too large for me.
The results have been nothing short of amazing. A lifetime of chronic constipation--solved! Embarassing and chronic problems with flatulence--no more! Painful bloating--over with! I never knew what normal was...now I do. Now I can actually leave the house after eating dinner and be around people again!
Keep them in the fridge. It will maintain their potency. The bacteria like to be cold, I guess."
"I honestly can't say if this is doing anything for me or not. Its the first probiotic I've tried. Not sure if I am supposed to notice any changes or what. I do wish I had purchased one with an enteric coating. These veggie caps give me that feeling that its stuck in my throat for a bit and I HATE that sensation. I likely will not buy again."
"This product was recommended by my doctor to strengthen my immune system. I had been on antibiotics that totally threw my system off. I just couldn't get my good bacteria back in balance. After 2 weeks on Vitacost Probiotic 8-5 I am feeling more like myself again."
"I would highly recommend this probiotic to everyone. I have used it for awhile now and it does the job as well as more costly products.Probiotics work great if you are having digestive issues in your life."
"Very comparable to Jarrow's EPS, a fine product, while at a much better price! 5 billion bacteria a good number for the average person, but do take well after a meal or between meals. (I keep in fridge, though it appears to be "shelf stable")"
