"The potency on this probiotic is very low. When I had taken probiotics by 21st Century, I would take one every other day and still feel the effects. This one I take every day and feel no effects. (By "effects" I mean within my bowels.) Unless you really want a low dose, try a different probiotic. Vitacost does make them - look for higher numbers. 8-5 is the low end, look for something like 15-35. Yes it costs more, but you're also getting more."
"While I find naturally fermented foods (unpasteurized 'kraut, yogurt, kefir, kimchi, etc) to be far superior to any probiotic supplement, I notice a difference in my digestion on days I don't take this pill. Priced well, easy to swallow, no side effects, well worth the money."
