I take the regular Acidophilus Pearls. Been taking them for awhile and have good results. I was on their website and saw they have 3 varieties. Didn't know if anyone had tried any of them. Thanks!

Tabitha -- I noticed in your signature line awhile back you took these and saw them in Wal Mart. We don't use them every day - I got them for when we travel since they do not need to be refrigerated. That was a major convenience for travel.

FYI....I just got Sundown brand chewable acidophilus with Bifidus strawberry flavor which have 1 billion live cells per wafer. (Wafer is actually a chewable tablet) I thought I would try those - they do need to be refrigerated but instead of another pill this is like having a piece of candy. I get the caramel calcium chews for that same reason to eliminate another pill/capsule.

Now that we are both on the additional meds for treating the H Pylori I asked the Dr about the pro biotic replenishing and dosage to try to keep ahead of what the anti biotics might be doing to the bacteria that seems to have gotten fairly balanced for my husband. We are taking two of the chewable ones each day.
