From the manufacturer
Raw Probiotics from Garden of Life
Raw Probiotics is an innovative line of Raw, whole food probiotic formulas that emulates eating fermented food. Inspired by the research of Dr. Eli Metchnikoff, the “Father of Probiotics,” these daily and targeted formulas are made with Bulgarian yogurt, Eastern European wild kefir, studied probiotic strains, fruits and vegetables—plus protein-digesting enzymes.
Available in both daily and targeted condition-specific formulas, Raw Probiotics are never heated more than 115°F—maintaining more live nutrients, enzymes and probiotic strains and offering the greatest targeted health benefit. The “Raw” in Raw Probiotics means more than low heat during manufacturing; Raw Probiotics are uncooked, untreated and unadulterated, with no binders, fillers, or other artificial or chemical ingredients often seen in other probiotic supplements (such as magnesium stearate and sodium ascorbate). All of our Raw Probiotics formulas contain premium quality, diverse strains of high cell count probiotics, promoting flora diversity as found in nature.
What you see on the label is what you get! Potency is good through expiration when stored under recommended storage conditions. Using high levels of probiotics in the beginning stages of manufacturing ensures probiotic viability—even if the product is warm for a few days during shipment (especially during the summer months, or in warmer climates).
Raw Whole Food Goodness
All of our Raw Probiotics formulas combine traditional cultured foods like Bulgarian yogurt, Eastern European wild kefir, and fruits & vegetables—Red Bell Peppers, Green Peas, Plums and Cherries, to name a few—with studied probiotic strains and protein-digesting enzymes.

A friend who's a naturopathic doctor gave me a tip that this product could alleviate all GI issues with foods by changing the proportions of beneficial flora in my digestive system. So, I purchased this product and took it according to his instructions - normal dosage for 2 weeks, then start eating the problem foods while continuing the normal dosage.
In fact, I've purchased the product twice from Amazon and once from a local health food store that keeps it refrigerated. The first bottle I took exactly according to the doctor's instructions - on the first day, within an hour of taking this product, my gut swelled up with so much gas that I looked pregnant. It was angry gas, too, that growled and moved around constantly, but wouldn't release. It was so uncomfortable that I actually had to leave work. And it caused me to get really constipated, which NEVER happens to me. I eat a ton of fiber and drink water nearly constantly because I live in the desert.
After calling the good doc, I was told this is not an unusual reaction when first taking the product, and that I should continue it - it would get improve in a week to ten days. Well, I continued to suffer from the same issues for weeks, and it became so uncomfortable that I could barely walk without feeling like my stomach/chest would pop. I continued through the whole first bottle and never felt anything but significantly worse. There was no ability to test the offending foods because I was constantly gassy and bloated.
The doc said that perhaps the problem was the product itself was old or not kept refrigerated, so I bought locally from Vitamin Cottage. This second bottle, which had been refrigerated its entire life and was not expired, created the same issue.
One thing to note - when it finally did release, the massive amount of gas wasn't stinky. That's about the only positive thing I have to say about this product.
Fast forward a couple of months and I had gone back to not taking any probiotics and just avoiding dairy, and eating apples and onions sparingly. My stomach had recovered from the probiotic pills and had no more issues - my BMs are always clean and easy, with no toilet tire tracks. Well, I kept reading about the wonderful benefits of probiotics, so I bought one more bottle from here on Amazon. Keep in mind that I'm not a "magic pill" or "silver bullet" type of guy - I try to get all of my vitamin and mineral needs from the food that I grow and eat.
Well, long story short, the last bottle did the same thing to my gut, even with only taking 1 pill (a third of the recommended dosage) per day. As far as I can tell, this product did nothing but harm to my system. And, no, my system works great normally except for select foods. Granted, this is a single anecdote, so you will likely get different results.
But, I suspect that the placebo effect is happening for a lot of the people taking this product, as there's almost no peer-reviewed science that suggests this stuff is necessary, or even good for you. Also, there isn't some vast conspiracy by drug and vitamin and food companies to make you sick - there's simply no evidence of that whatsoever and, if you think there is, you're leaving factville and entering into belief territory.
The first cup looked like normal milk, and had no change.
The second cup with the Garden of Life RAW Probiotics in it? MASSIVE CARNAGE. LOL! The probitoics basically did their job, eating most of the milk sugar and stuff.
I started using it regularly on the empty stomach. The first day, I did have a little gas but it was not bad at all. The second day, I felt nothing. The third day I felt super charged with energy, and felt in a great mood. I am happy with the results so far. I could have taken points off for the shipping not including a cold pack to make absolute sure they were safe, but they would be sweating the small stuff after my science experiment proved they were alive and kicking!
Update 7 years later and these are the best. YOU DON'T TYPICALLY NEED 4 PILLS! I just take one every other day with keifer. feels great. Don't down rate because your postman put them in the sun. Take less than the recommended 4 pills unless you are big or have intestine issues. Thank you good luck.

Unfortunetly these probiotics gave me the worst diarrhea of my entire life!! It went on for nearly a month and i was stupid enough to continue and thinking that it would get better, which it didn't.
I researched for why i could be getting diarrhea and although it is a common side effect in the early first weeks of using probiotics for the first time ever or in a long time, i wasn't a first time user. As i said, i have been taking probiotics since forever.
I am not allergic or intolerent to any of the ingredients and this is why it's such a mystery for me.
I did contact Garden of Life directly and they had no idea in short.
I give it one star because it simply didn't work and put in a load of pain and mess.
All i'm going to say is buy with caution.
