Health Notes

Probiotics

Probiotics
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    Comments about GNC Ultra Probiotic Complex 50:

    Been using this product for many years now and it stays effective... for regular/daily bowel balance. Thankful I found it, worth the investment as it is a little pricey, buy it on sale, but money well spent for staying healthy.
    I just love HAPPY ENDINGS ; )

    P.S.
    How can anyone say that it taste bad, this product is in a capsule, that you swallow, that comment doesn't make any sense to me.

      I have suffered with severe diviticulitis on several occasions.In the past this condition has resulted in my having inpatient stays at the hospital.

I do not want to be without this product.

          I use this product to work to better my severe stomach issues that are similar to IBS. Most days when I take it, I experience few to no symptoms, which is awesome! It does taste a little funky, so I usually try to take it with something flavored to thwart the funkiness.
