I am looking for a new probiotic, now that I have run out of VSL #3. I was on the natures way website and i came across this (http://www.healthy.co.nz/view-product-1236.html). it doesn't seem to be a PB, but has anyone tried it/does it help?

I've tried colostrum in the past with no noticable benefits, it's important to be taking a probiotic daily, I actually use primadophilus reuteri made by natures way...the brand of colostrum I used was from a local store and I cannot remember the name as it was a long time ago now...maybe I would have noticed benefits from colostrum from another brand, regardless, I'm happy with my regime of bee propolis, omegas 3-6-9, fibre supplements (strongly recommended by my GI) and primadophilus reuteri probiotic.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I haven't heard of that one. I have used Culturelle in the past, but now use a Jarro formula that's working well for me.

do you order that online? or can you get it at a health food store?

I ordered the jarro-dophilus eps one online from iherb. Someone on the forum actually recommended it to me - i haven't been able to find the post to thank them :(
You can get Culturelle at Wal-Mart or online.
iherb has lots of different probiotics as well.
