Rated 1 out of 5 by Crabby Completely ineffective
Four days of an antibiotic messed up my digestive system. I thought a 15-strain probiotic like this one would help. I took this Swanson product for weeks, even doubled the dosage -- didn't help a bit.
Then I got a refrigerated probiotic juice that contains only Lactobacillus plantarum (the Swanson product says it contains this, too, at 180 million viable organisms). Within a couple of days of taking the probiotic juice, my gut was much better.
My conclusion: The Swanson product -- mfg date 02/13 -- did not contain live cultures. I got it directly from Swanson. I will never order this again.

I have taking this product for 2 months and it's helping me with my regularity like the expensive ones, I'll be taking them for sure with digestive enzymes.

I've read many times how Probiotics are a valuable and necessary supplement for the human body. I live on a fixed income and have always tried to buy some but, they are so expensive! Swanson's Probiotics is a great product because I feel so much better and so does my tummy! The price is perfect with 2-4-1 price special and I am so grateful, I'm telling everyone!

It has been brought to my attention after taking this product, that probiotics are best packaged in blister packs, unless refrigerated. This helps preserve the delicate bacteria that lives inside the capsules. Since these capsules are not packaged that way, the guarantee of 3 billion CFU's applies only to the time of manufacture. Therefore, you really don't know what you're taking. I have taken other products that are packaged in blister packs and have found those to be much more effective. In addition, the miniscule amount of FOS included is insignificant. The use of this ingredient on the packaging is simply for marketing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Works Great, but, Watch The Dates.
I use to take Swanson Ultra probiotics Complex twice a day. I like these better because I only need one a day.
Cost is about the same per day, and work just as well.
One word of CAUTION!, most of the probiotics are only good for ONE YEAR from the Mfg. date. (according to a Sanson phone rep.) So be careful how many you order at one time.
My experience has been, they are usually about three months old when I get them.
The date information is written somewhere on the web site, (the rep. did find it for me.) but it doesn't exactly stand out. It would be nice if Swanson could make this information a little more prominent, since most of their products are good for two years.
I find these often on the BOGO list.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SacredHealth Check Ingredients list
I purchase a lot of supplements from Swanson to improve my health but after researching the ingredients, I found out that Magnesium Stearate and Silica ARE NOT good for your health. I've stayed away from any supplements that contain this and looked for alternatives on the site. Always check the ingredient list (supplements, food, etc) and do your own research. Good health!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tactful BOGO
the buy one get one is the hook on this product,it's outstanding.the real test will come in finding out how many CFU's (colony forming units) it provides.this is crucial.so far the jury is still out on this but there have been no negative results,just quries.
i.e. do they arrive alive where they're supposed to and form said CFU's?

I switched to this product after using a more expensive brand which was recommended by my primary MD. The result is that this product is effective at a much better price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Imafan Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 15 Strain Probiotic
I have tried many probiotic products over the years, and have had better results with this one than any other,
In addition to good results, another plus is that it does not have to be refrigerated, so it is convenient for travel.
If I should win the gift certificate, I would use it for more Swanson products, especially Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 15 Strain Probiotic!

I was taking Natrol beads which is one of the more reasonably priced probiotics and the one that worked for me. I switched over to this one because of the incredible pricing and am very impressed. Have been taking this for well over a year with great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SensibleOne eating right with Swanson's
Too excellent if you aren't able to eat those healthy fiber foods with plenty of veggies when you supplement with the Ultimate 15 Strain Probiotic w FOS. I take these on a daily regimen and my tummy says digestion is easy when the proper enzymes meet to digest what I've had time to consume...eat best when you can but when you can't Dr. Steven Langer's probiotic helps you stay on tract!!!

This is a good product which really seems to help with overall digestive health. I've tried other products, and this one does a better job overall. A bit pricey, but usually a BOGO, so a good value.

All of my family members take this probiotic. It is an excellent probiotic. Many probiotics contain only a couple of strains and this one contains 15 strands and FOS. We have taken this probiotic for a couple of years and we are very satisfied with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by humanics not much in them
honestly, add up the strengths. OK, 3 billion critters. Look for other products that have more like 50 billion or more. Lee Swanson products is one of them - I think our pills have 60 billion in them. The number matters most.

The formula is great and I try to get it our of the mailbox before there is any heat of the day to protect the product. It seems to work well and it is easy to keep and use. I haven't taken enough other kinds of probiotics as I am always concerned about how many of them keep their effectiveness by the time the customer receives them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GardenCity Broad Spectrum Definitely the Ultimate
I have found this to be much broader in spectrum and less expensive than many others I find in other retail outlets. Definitely it helps me keep up my immune system to the optimum. Every time before each trip overseas (which I do a lot specially to developing countries in SE Asia and Africa, I take these with me to keep me safe. I was able to drink and eat regular foods served locally.

This probiotic is my favorite and I've tried several. It doesn't upset my digestion and seems to keep things working fine. It may just be a coincidence but it seems to have boosted my immune system.
