I stumbled across this product one night when desperately trying to find a 'cure' for yet another yeast infection that my doctor says is simply brought on by hormones every month. She said to try different kinds of acidophilus and to see which product seemed to help the most.
THIS product, (in conjunction with the pearls of the same brand) has changed my life. I went from having a yeast infection EVERY MONTH for six years (I tried changing my diet for years, taking Diflucan in massive dosages, creams and suppositories, etc., with no effect), to not having had a single one in the past four months since I've been taking this product daily (I started off by tripling my dosage, then doubling, and am now down to what the bottle recommends and still seem OK). When I was taking the massive doses, I did have to contend with "the runs" sometimes, but I finally got a dosage down that seems to work for me.
If you've struggled with irregularity (that was never a problem of mine, but this has helped my bowels with that, too), or if you have recurring yeast infections, GET THIS TODAY.
I originally bought these to keep me from getting sick during travel from South America. But they helped me tremendously with my numerous digestive problems. I stopped having to take any lactose intolerance supplements. With Accuflora most/all of my lactose intolerance side affects disappeared. Even without milk products I had upset stomach and it's side effects constantly. I would go through bottles of PeptoBismol and Pepcid like crazy, taking it every day almost.
I have lost about 15 pounds since getting on these. I did not know previously that they were supposed to help that and was not doing anything different other than take this.
I was visiting family recently and ran out of this brand. I bought a different brand (Phillips Colon Health) for 14$ (only a 30 day supply) at Walmart and it didn't work near as well Accuflora did. Even though Phillips has a larger number of bacteria. Accuflora has more different KINDS of bacteria.
I am 37 and have had digestive issues for 23 years. I sooo wish I had known about these all those years.
BTW, I didn't have any stomach problems or 'travelers trot' while in the Amazon forest, for the 2 weeks I was there either.
I had my gall bladder removed and was not feeling very well after eating, then my Chiropractor suggested I start taking a probiotic for better digestion. I researched several products before settling on Accuflora-Probiotic Acidophilus. After trying it for a few weeks, it seemed to be the right one. But then after skipping it a few days, my nausea came back, so now I know it is the right probiotic for me. I highly recommend it to anyone who has had their gall bladder removed. It works great for me and I believe it will work for you, too. I have already mentioned this product to several friends, who have tried it and found it useful for them as well. Update: What happen to the price of this product??? Why did it increase over 400 percent??? It used to be $22 and now it's $109, what gives? I still like this product, but I will look elsewhere for a better price. I hope this price was just a typo.
I take a medication that seems to keep my yeast levels high, so I am constantly battling thrush mouth which is disgusting. I hate to even talk about it but if it helps someone else, I guess it will be worth it. Naturally, I have tried many different brands of probiotics and I have found this one to work the best. I take two pills a day and have been practically symptom free since starting to use this product. The only time I've had any symptoms at all was during Christmas when I ate way too much sugar! Luckily, this product went right to work and I was symptom free again in no time.
I tried two other brands of acidophilus before coming to Amazon to check reviews. I've been taking this one since August. This is definitely even more effective than Pearls and way better than a different generic I tried. It really helps calm excess gas. I take one in the morning and it is adequate to help me feel normal all day, instead of explosive! (Sorry, I know...T.M.I.)
I tried this product along with Ortho Molecular Product Orthos Biotic -- 60 Capsules during two separate bouts of having to take anti-biotics in the past year - one for strep and one a very strong anti-biotic they gave me for possible lyme tick bite (I would not take that anti-biotic again!). I am 39 and in great health generally.
This product set better in my stomach as well as my bowel both times and got me "back to normal" quicker than Ortho Biotic did. As with the Ortho Biotic, the accuflora also does not require refrigeration.
I think people's bodies/genetics are all different as well as our environments, diets, illnesses and prescription medications, so all I can relay is my personal experience - your mileage may vary :)
I have had different types of digestion issues since a child. Recently I was introduced to the idea of probiotics. I chose this brand specifically because of all the great reviews. I have been using this product for about a month and have noticed great improvements. Lets put it this way, my new nickname should be smooth operator! I give this only 4 stars not because of the quality but for the price. A month ago it was $20 a bottle now its almost $85! Really how is that even possible?! Now I'm forced to look for another brand that is just as good for a more reasonable price....
