I bought 3 months worth(180 capsules) in 2010 when it started being sold in the US. I thought it helped but when I took the last 60 capsules over 2 months then stopped I noticed no change.
Unlike other probiotics, Mutaflor can reproduce and permanently colonize the gut and is not a lactic acid bacteria(yogurt culture). So maybe I still have that strain of bacteria in residence.
From Mutaflors web site:
Why can’t I buy Mutaflor in the US anymore?
Mutaflor is currently discontinued from the U.S. market respecting the FDA’s decision on the classification of the product as a“biologic” instead of it’s former status as a “medical food”
Please note that the discontinuation of the product is solely attributed to the FDA’s classification of the product and a final decision is still pending.
We will do our best to bring Mutaflor back to the US market as soon as possible while respecting the FDA.
Is There Anything I Can Do?
If you would like to provide a testimonial of your use of Mutaflor, please email it to info @ medfutures.com
Unlike VSL#3 you can't culture yogurt out of mutaflor which is why I went with vsl#3 instead
