    From 1999 to 2001 my immune system was compromised by a series of "broad spectrum antibiotics" unwittingly prescribed in a short time frame by several doctors for a variety of things. Inside of a year these "shotgun" antibiotics had destroyed most of the good bacteria in my body. I chased skin rashes in every sensitive skin area on my body (ears, neck, testicals, butt, arm pits) for 3 years (and 5 different dermatologists) and I finally found a dermatology 'pathologist' whose investigation of the meds administered prior to the skin problems - PLUS my wife's suggestions, revealed that the broad spectrum antibiotics were the culprit. The PB-8 PROBIOTICS turned me around. It took a three month regimen of 2 capsules a day. After 13 different prescriptions of cortizone from the 5 dermatologists - the PB-8 PROBIOTICS eliminated this nightmare. That was 10 years ago - and I now take 3 capsules a day as my life insurance to keep my body chemistry in balance at all times. Most people do not realize that over the decades the pharmaceutical industry has strengthened the antibiotics and they no longer target just the "bad" bacteria - they kill everything in their path. Thus the name "broad spectrum". Avoid them at all costs - but if you find it absolutely necessary to take an antibiotic take the probiotics during and after the antibiotics. You've got to replenish the good bacteria in your body. Easiest regimen ever - but you have to understand what devastating effect these new antibotics have on your immune system.

    drugstore has a good price for this product while other places charge $19+. i decided to try a probiotic that doesn't need to be refrigerated, mostly to help with lactose intolerance. i've noticed improvement with lactose issues when eating yogurts with probiotics/acidophilus. i tried pb8 for 10 days and had bloating/gassy daily. i thought maybe i had to get used to it so i called the manufacturer and they said the bloaty/gas should subside after a few days, so i've decided this is the wrong product for me since i'm having discomfort well over a week later. the rep suggested that the chicory root in the blue bottle is causing it and that the green "vegan" bottle might not cause the bloat. i'm too scared to experiment.

          PB8 Probiotics are great. They're effective and easy and best of all don'r HAVE to be refrigerated. So they were great to take before, after and during my trip to Peru. My roommate and I both took them and were the only ones in the group that did not get sick, though others took other forms of supplements. I highly recommend them.

            My GP recommended that I use a complex probiotic daily to help to manage my severe Irritable bowel Syndrome. I find that probiotics do indeed help to maintain a fairly regular digestive system.

                    I am really impressed with Nutrition Now PB 8. My digestive system began to regulate within about 2 days. I didn't realize how bad my digestive system was until it wasn't irregular anymore! I'd tried stool softeners in the past with no dependable relief, but I take 2 PB 8 tablets every afternoon and drink lots of water and I've felt great. If you have an irregular system, I definitely recommend this!

                      When i take PB-8 every day, i don't get sick. It also helps with preventing bloating,diarrhea,upset stomach. For children and older people---just break open the capsules and sprinkle in your mouth. Tastes like whey milk. Good for your health!
