Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I've tried other Probiotics and still like Swanson Probiotic Coplex and Fem Flora the best!
Date published: 2019-03-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good. Swanson discontinued the probiotic I had been buying and this one just is not as good. It does nothing for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from EXPIRED I was sent a bottle manufactured in 2014, it even had the older label on it. So there is no way any probiotic would still maintain its potency for over 4 yrs. I will now purchase my probiotics from the local pharmacy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OLD I ordered this 10/31/2018 and it was already 20 months old. There is no way this product contains any live probiotics

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best probiotic I have been using this probiotic for over 10 years. It is simply the best. It is of high quality. It is very reasonably priced. It retains its potency and does not require refrigeration. I highly recommend it and Swanson.
Date published: 2018-10-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure if product has living organisms I have been using this a long time, and never noticed a problem with it. Then I started giving it to my aunt who can't swallow pills. I'd empty a capsule into juice and noticed something very wrong. The first few were fine. A powdery substance that mixed well with the juice. As I got down to 2/3 of the bottle, I noticed little clumps that didn't mix well. Now I am down to 1/3 of the bottle left. It is very difficult to open the capsules and the probiotics are hard as brick and keep the form of the gel cap when I get it out. I must use mortar and pestle to turn it to powder. One possibility is the pills were affected by moisture in the air at the plant. The other possibility is I removed the desiccate early and the product drinks up air moisture from my home just that quickly. I purchased the product 5 or 6 month ago. I am going to write to Swanson to ask them how long the desiccate protects it, and if this process kills probiotics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We love the potency of this probiotic. We've purchased probiotics from drugstores and grocery stores in the past and there is simply no comparison. I believe Swanson's product is much more fresh which is important with this type of product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Probiotic I've tried many brands of probiotics and these are the best I've found! Great price, very effective, and easy to swallow. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Great Value! Swanson Ultra Probiotic Complex contains more viable organisms as other brands I have used for much less cost. I have great results and will continue to order this product. I gladly recommend this to friends and co-workers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective I have taken more potent probiotics and did not notice any difference. When I started taking this, I have had daily bowel movements.
Date published: 2016-04-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from noticed a difference someone told me that a probiotic is beneficial so i chose to buy one. I was feeing kind of sickly, adding this to my daily routine I think it improved that feeling.... I take 1 at night with my other pills. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aseffective as yogurt. These come in handy as a yogurt replacement. I take 1 am and 1 @ bedtime.
Date published: 2015-03-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure... All I can say is Probiotics is not for everyone. I used them for almost two weeks and they did fine until the 2nd week. Then I had this lower intestine eating away type of feeling. I can't blame this brand because I have tried other brands of Probiotics in the past and had the same results. It's almost like I get too many live organisms inside and it starts to counteract on me. So I can't give an honest opinion on Effectiveness, and satisfaction. I'm not giving a bad review just don't know.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product comparison I bought this probiotic because it saved me money but the Nature's Way Primadophilus Optima is a much better product. More expensive but better value because I have to take three times as more Swanson Ultra for the same benefit as one Nature's Way.
Date published: 2014-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this product I have tried different products like these from Swanson and this is one I would recommend. Anything that contributes to overall intestinal health is a good thing to making sure I am getting the most out of my diet and overall health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson's Ultra Probiotic Complex GREAT Probiotic mix!!! This is by far one of the better probiotic pills at half the cost. We all know that probiotics are good for the gut, and this one delivers with a very high amount (1 billion), of Lactobacillus acidophilus, which is one of the better strains that you can take. Plus, the pills are DR or 'designed to be released' in the small intestines and not the stomach. Get these on BOGO and store the extra in the frig!
Date published: 2014-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great alternative to yogurt if you don't eat a lot of yogurt this is a much better alternative for friendly bacteria.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makes me Break out This is probably my fault for not getting vegan probiotics, but these probiotics make me break out slightly. I have only been taking it for 2 weeks and I know sometimes these effects can fade, but my face it getting torn up in the process so I just rather not bother to wait. I cannot attest to any other benefits except maybe a tiny bit of energy on the first two days of taking it.
