Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic includes more than four times the number of strains and over twice the number of CFUs compared to many popular probiotic formulations marketed in clinics and pharmacies today. While many popular supplements provide only two strains of bifidobacteria, Dr. Langer's formula delivers five. And while others have only one strain of lactobacillus, Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic features ten, including Lactobacillus reuteri, which was recently added to improve the formula because of the unique protective abilities it offers for colon health and immune system function.

And that's not all. The formula also includes the prebiotic FOS and ConcenTrace® trace minerals, which you won't find in any off the shelf product. Prebiotics and trace minerals are important because most of us are lacking them in our diets, but they're absolutely vital to the enzymatic processes necessary for healthy digestion and the maintenance of beneficial bacteria.

Don't be fooled by mass market products that over promise and under deliver—products that also cost more than they should. With this state of the art formula you'll feel the difference in as little as one month. It's the ultimate probiotic at a truly affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hopeful I viewed a video online giving symptoms, and solutions plus pushing their brand. I checked and wrote down all that was on their product label, then immediately went to Swanson's to find a comparable product. This one is a good find and much more reasonable, so I look forward to receiving my order and hopefully get my system in check. Thank you Swanson's!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price! Great benefits! Great price! Great benefits! Since becoming a senior citizen, I've experience more abdominal bloating than usual and quite a bit of constipation. Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic with FOS has given me a lot of relief in both of those areas. I'm so grateful for a product that's not only affordable but very beneficial as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GMO-Boo I did order this product and though I used it for awhile, I did discontinue because I discovered it is not GMO-free. I don't feel any product or supplement is worth anything if it contains GMOs, and I will not purchase this again until Swanson offers a quality, NON-GMO version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product This is my third time purchasing Dr. Stephen Langer's Ultimate 16 Strain Probiotic with FOS, 60 vegetarian caplets. It's gluten and dairy free and is a high quality probiotic that works really well for me and my system. I plan on continuing to purchase it as long as it is available or upgraded! I really also like that I buy one bottle and get one free with their special right now too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like these Big difference when I don't take it. With the BOGO sale that seems to always be on, it's a decent price for what it is. Best ones I've tried yet as far as being effective, not massively large capsules, and so on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooths Out That Gut I am a late passenger aboard the Probiotic Train. I was not a believer. I already take plenty of other supplements. However, whether it was my diet or aging gut, I now have none of that afternoon/after lunch gas which was uncomfortable and embarrassing in yoga or zumba classes. Also, I seem to be more smooth and regular in my BMs. Worth a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Product Been looking for a long time as well as asking everyone I know if they are aware of a comparable product. Not only can no one find a better product but many lesser products cost significantly more. Better product, lower price, what's not to love?
Date published: 2015-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Definitely Active Just wanted to post a quick review in response to the person who said they tried the "milk test" and the probiotics didn't work. I also tried the milk test in July of 2015 using a bottle that was manufactured in June of 2015. I emptied two capsules into a small cup of regular low-fat milk and let it sit overnight. By the next day, these little guys had begun turning the milk into a yogurt-like substance. So they are definitely alive and active! For anyone who tries the milk test and it doesn't work, you likely received a bad batch and should return it for a replacement. Keep in mind, probiotics tend to "die" at a rate of 5% per month from the date of manufacture. It is best to use them quickly and keep them in the fridge during the summer. They need to be kept cool and dry. As for the effectiveness of the Dr. Langer's probiotics, I just started using it, so I can't comment. I do like the fact that it has 16-strains of friendly bacteria along with FOS and trace minerals. Wish the CFU count was a bit higher though. 3-billion is kind of low compared to most other brands (which typically range from 6-20 billion CFUs). Overall, I believe this is a good value for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied I have been using this product for quit some time and could never feel that it any effect on me. I learned about the milk test for testing your probiotic to see if it is active and so I tried it and found that this probiotic had absolutely no reaction to the milk. Frustrating! I have used Swanson products for decades but I will now be more selective in which products I purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just a question Hi, I'm using this product now with now bad effects but I can't find any info about how to store it (needs to be in the fridge?) or what its shelf life is. Can someone help me? Thanks
Date published: 2015-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Foods that previously caused digestive distress no longer have that effect since taking this probiotic. I order several bottles at a time the wife takes it daily also. The price is much less than in stores.

Returned with no problems and got back on my tried and true choice of all these years. I tried this due to bargain price but NOT worth it.
