Here is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading probiotic supplements: InnovixLabs Multi-Strain Probiotic, Prescript-Assist, Jarro-dophilus EPS 25 Billion, Jarrow Formulas Jarro-dophilus EPS 5 Billion, Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra, Hyperbiotics PRO-15, Now Foods Probiotic 10, Culturelle, Florastor, and Schiff Digestive Advantage.


Probiotic bacteria supplements are very popular, and for good reason. "Good bugs from yogurt" were once considered a solution to digestive issues like irregularity and nothing more. But we now know that gut health and the collection of healthy bacteria in our gut (called microbiome or gut flora) play key roles in several seemingly unrelated chronic diseases like obesity, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, and depression.

Some specific types of probiotic bacteria strongly influence our mood - they help produce most of the neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine in the gut.

Other probiotic strains have been shown to reduce cholesterol. And yet others help ease colic in newborns.

We all have unique blends of probiotics in our guts. We get them from our mothers during birth and then through breastfeeding. After that, we get more from the environment (mostly dirt). By age three, our probiotic fingerprints are established, so it is critical that you expose to your kids to fermented foods, pets, probiotics, and yes, even dirt at an early age.

Children born via C-section, then fed formula, or given antibiotics, and raised in ultra clean homes have poor gut bacterial diversity. This has been linked to several lifelong health issues like allergies, asthma, skin disorders, obesity, and according to some publications, even autism.

After being on antibiotics CONSTANTLY as a child and teenager, I suffered a lot of ill-effects and I have been killing candida and healing my gut since the early 90s, off and on. IMO, these are simply the best on the market, and much better than the "regular" Primal Defense. After reading some bad reviews, I wanted to point out a few things others may find helpful. First off, probiotics aren't magic, and if they are magic to some folks, that's great!! But let me take this a step further. Mostly everyone that has bowel problems, and allergy problems especially, have leaky gut syndrome. If you are REALLY sensitive to this product, you probably have leaky gut and will never recover if you don't heal your intenstinal tract. I have found great recovery with a couple of products that some may find helpful: Colostrum LD and MSM (both vendors are here at Amazon). I have been on high doses of both of these and I feel better than I have in years. I used to have severe bloating, extreme fatigue, severe food allergies/sensitivies, extreme chemical sensitivies, carb sensitivity, skin problems, cravings, IBS symptoms, uveitis (corneal inflammation), etc.....but I always tried to do my own research because I knew doctors caused all of this to begin with by keeping me on antibiotics constantly. Please keep in mind that if you have a severe case of leaky gut syndrome, probiotics may not work well for you and you'll probably never *fully* recover. Also, certain strains of probiotics work better for certain symptoms than others. If I took a certain probiotic for IBS, I would get worse constipation because that strain of probiotic is for people with diarrhea. Lesson learned. Also, if you have candida problems, I find it's best to start out with Syntol and then go to this brand.Read more ›

I learned of the benefits of probiotics thanks to my cousin in San Diego who sent me an article on how probiotics were beneficial for patients with Crohn's disease. Probiotics are organisms that live in the soil under normal circumstances. However pesticides kill probiotics that would otherwise live in the soil. Probiotics help control inflammation and also help your digestive tract to work at its optimum level.
The only way to benefit from probiotics is to eat organic food and or to take probiotics. After reading the article I decided to give probiotics and organic foods a try. I have had Crohn's disease since the age of about 3 years old and I have had arthritis since the age of sixteen. Both are auto-immune diseases. Inflammation is a huge problem for auto-immune diseases.
Primal Defense Ultra was developed by Jordan Rubin who has suffered from Crohn's disease himself. Jordan Rubin was exposed to probiotics after suffering from Crohn's disease and not finding the treatment available in the United States helpful for his condition. He was exposed to probiotics for the treatment of Crohn's disease while he travelled outside of the US.
Before trying probiotics and organic foods, I had one of the worst flare-ups that I have ever had for Crohn's disease and none of the medications available for Crohn's disease were helping me at the time. I was on every medication available to me, including high doses of steroids (which is a miserable experience) and Remicade too. At the time nothing was bringing the flare-up to the point of being manageable. My abdomen was huge because of the distention. The distention was so bad that I had to go up 4 women's clothing sizes because my intestines were so swollen. That was the worst it had ever been for me.
