Enteric Coated. Twelve-Strain Formula. Each serving provides over 20 billion living organisms from twelve important probiotic strains. Intended to provide nutritive support for the normal absorption of nutrients in the digestive tract. To maximize survival of the microorganisms each vegetarian capsule is enteric coated to help allow for passage through harsh stomach acids and into the small intestine.
"I have been taking these probiotic capsules for about a year now. I used to get frequent yeast infections but now I haven't had one in 3 years. Also I am never bloated anymore and am very regular. Great product especially for the price!"
"There is a sticker on the bottle from the manufacturer that says "Keep Refrigerated" right on the cap. When I have bought it before from a health food store it was kept in the refrigerator. Unfortunately, Vitacost was not informed of this by the manufacturer and when I received it after 2 weeks, it was warm. Vitacost took care of it by refunding my money and I disposed of the product."
"This is a fantastic product and great value, however I question the how effective it can be if it is left in a warehouse un-refrigerated. Vitacost needs to figure out a way to keep their probiotics refrigerated."
"Overall this is a great product and I would highly recommend it! However, BUYER BEWARE! I had questions about this product and contacted the manufacturer. The manufacturer ships the product from a refrigerated warehouse. It says KEEP REFRIGERATED on the top of the bottle and on the label. Not refrigerate after opening. There is a difference!! VITACOST stores the item in a 70 degree warehouse (not refrigerated). The manufacturer says it loses its potency if not kept refrigerated. I like Vitacost but they have dropped the ball on this one! If you really want the 20 billion microorganisms then buy this product somewhere else until Vitacost is able to keep it refrigerated!"
