I got the Natures Way refridgerated Primadolphious, with 5 billion microorganisms per day per pill.  I got 180 pills for $28, so $9 a month.  Anyone else try this brand?
 
hope the aloe juice I drank this am does not eff me up!

It's what I've been using for the last 4 yrs with success...wow, what a great price you got in Canada I pay 28.00 for 90 caps...I've mentioned it here a few hundred times LOL!

If you notice any problems with the aloe then stop right away...I've never tried it myself.

I use it also, and it's been a big help to me. Hope it works as well for you.

Count your blessings on the deal you got!!! Be sure to always check the expiration date located on the bottom of the box though...and that it's ALWAYS kept refridgerated, that's the only down-side to this probiotic although, there are plenty of others that also have to be kept cold at all times.

I started taking Fiber Smart probiotics and it really helped me for 4 months then I switched to a more potent one called Healthy Trinity by Natren.  Then I got a flare 1 month later so not sure what happened but I was doing GREAT for 5-6 months!
