This is the first time I've used this particular brand of Pro-Biotics. About 8 months ago, I realized that I should start taking these for my stomach health. I was having some issues of some bloating in mostly my upper & somewhat in my lower stomach...and also a feeling of nausia every day & throughout the day. Then I did some research & talked to a health care person who informed me that if I took a good Pro-Biotic every day...that would help these issues, plus get rid of the bad bacteria in my system - therefore helping my overall feeling more energy & better health. So - I looked at all the different brands & read their information on the boxes & decided that(because they are waaayyyy to expensive)I would buy the cheaper brand....not the cheapest....but yet cheaper than the upper priced ones. For the last several months, I've faithfully taken on each day with a full glass of water. I have noticed that my daily nausia feeling is 97% better...that's truly a big relief...but the bloating is still there. Then - I did some more research lately & found out that the "live organisms" in each capsule needs to be 10 Billion or more & the capsule needs to be strong enough to make it through both the upper & lower stomach. Well - the one I had been taking for months only had 5 Billion - & now that I know what I know...I'm sure it was dissolving before it made it all the way through to the lower stomach. So I was not getting the benifits I needed from it. (That's what I get for going with the cheaper brand & for not educating myself better in the first place.) So then...in comparing Pro-Biotic brands again & much more thoroughly this time - I found out that Culturelle did indeed meet all the criteria that I was looking for & needed. The price is more costly & yet - it's not the most expensive on the market (I realize now that this is one of the area's that I shouldn't cut costs in...you get what you pay for ) - so I ordered two from drugstore.com & got the free shipping. It just arrived recently & this is the 4th day I've been taking this brand. Unfortunately...I can't give you a result on how it's taken effect in my system yet because it needs a couple weeks, after starting it to be able to tell. I'm confident tho, that with the good rating Culturelle has & also it has 15 Billion live organisms in each capsule - which even better (from what I've read in my research) that it will do a great job for me. I'll try to remember to get back on this comment board & give you a report about how this brand is working for me. Sorry if this got long & boring!!!
Honestly...do what ever you think for yourself, but I think everyone should be taking one of these every day to knock out that bad bacteria from your system - which (from what I've now learned) is one of the main reasons we are so tired, have some other digestive issues & just plain "don't feel very good." But of course - if there is a medical reason for feeling that way then - for heaven's sake - don't ingnore it & get to a doctor. But if it's just a general feeling of "yuk"...then, this might be the answer. Blessings!

I purchased this item after a lot of research. I'd read that you should always open a capsule of probiotics to make sure that the bacteria is still alive. When the box arrived, I opened a capsule and found it full of clumpy, yellow balls. I called Culturelle and they said this appearance meant the bacteria was already dead and that the pills were useless now. Drugstore.com sent out a replacement, but it was from the same lot and also full of dead probiotics. I returned everything for a full refund. Probiotics need to be kept refrigerated; they simply do not have the shelf-life that the boxes claim.

      Comments about Culturelle Probiotic Health & Wellness, Capsules, 30 ea:

      I had been suffering from gastritis and heartburn for the past two months. I was eating Zantac, Pepcid and Tums like candy. (Max doses of all). Went to the doctor and she prescribed Prilosec, which I know is a very reliable drug, but I just couldn't believe I was having to start on prescription stomach meds already. I'm only 35! So I held off. It then occurred to me that I had been on a round of powerful antibiotics several months ago for an ear infection and I thought, hey, maybe everything's just out of whack with my digestion. Yesterday was going on my worst day yet with terrible acid stomach and uncomfortably full-feeling (though I had eaten hardly anything). I took the probiotic in the afternoon and didn't think much of it. By evening I felt 30% better. This morning I feel 100% better! I can't believe it. I actually feel hungry again, in a good way, not an "I'd better eat something to try and make this pain go away" sort of way. I want to go out and order a meatball sub or something to celebrate. I seriously wondered if I'd ever feel back to normal. I know it sounds like I am working for the company or something, lol but I'm not. Just someone who is so happy not to be in pain and discomfort anymore. No need for Omeprazole... yet.

              After 30 days...I noticed nothing. For me, a big thumbs down.

              I made sure the expiration date was good.

              It obviously helped others so it's probably worth a try.

                Comments about Culturelle Probiotic Health & Wellness, Capsules, 30 ea:

                I was admitted to the hospital with an intestinal infection and horrible bacterial imbalance. My doctor prescribed Culturelle for me while I was in there, and I also got it as a prescription when I was released from the hospital. I was surprised to see that it was available over the counter! If it's good enough for the hospital to give it to me, it's got to be good enough for anyone. I am taking it twice daily as per the doctor's orders. I notice no bad side effects at all. I trust this product because the two doctors that were working with me (one was an internist, and one was an infectious disease specialist) both wanted me on this product.
