It's always difficult to tell if a probiotic is doing anything or not. But my wife and I use, this probiotic not only as a daily supplement, but for upset stomach. Before going to an antacid or other type products, we'll take 2 of these probiotics instead. This has worked for us on more than several occasions. It appears to noticeably work for pain and nausea as well, with relief within 15-30 minutes. Unless we find out otherwise, our assumption is that an extra dose infrequently is much better than taking drugs and chemicals. I'm not sure how well or safely this would work on daily symptoms (ie acid reflux, etc), but the extra dose appears to do an excellent job on an occasional stomach bug or on something ya shouldn't have eaten. Hope this helps.
It’s not the cheapest probiotic, but it is very effective. I have a microflora that is very sensitive to different foods and medicine, so if I don’t take probiotic sometimes I have stomach pain every day. I go to a restaurant and I have to leave as it becomes unbearable and I leave home to lay down and wait for the gas to naturally leave my body if it so pleases. Second day after I started taking this, the pain was gone, just like that. Have not had it ever since (it’s the 3rd month of me taking this). It’s well worth me being able to live a normal life. If you have a similar problem, get it!
Let me say this "Since I have been taking this probiotic I have not had an incident". What I mean is that my stomach does a 180 and I can't eat anything. I tollorated liquids like broth for a good week and gradulally add food. It has been over a year. So I say YES!!!!! It states that you can take 1-2 capsules/day. I started off the first month at 2 and then to 1 thereafter.
