Customer Reviews:

  • Simply amazing!
    Ok I'm a very skeptical person. I am always wary about product reviews and products (especially health products), but this is an exception. I have been suffering with IBS for about 6 years. It's gotten quite a bit better in the last couple years due to more fiber in my diet and other dietary changes, but I still had problems with bloating, especially at night. I would wake up at about 4 am with lots of gas and pain in my stomach and be unable to go back to sleep. It really affected my mood and my ability to study and concentrate (I'm a dental student). After taking these pills though, my bloating has gone down considerably, I'm sleeping much better and am in a much better mood. I know this sounds hard to believe and pretty cheesy, but these pills have changed my life for the better! If you have IBS, or have taken lots of antibiotics, try these out, they have helped me immensely!...more info
  • BioBeads might be better
    I just read a report by Consumer Labs on probiotics, which included this product. Natrol BioBeads wasn't specifically evaluated, but since BioBeads and Pearls appear to offer the same technology, I compared the contents. According to the manufacturers, Pearls provides two types of bacteria, while BioBeads has four. Consumer Labs indicated that, in general, the broader the variety of flora a product provides, the better. Ironically, Consumer Labs also indicated that the types of bacteria in both products(strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) can usually survive gastric acids and don't need a coating anyway. ...more info

  • Not much difference
    I suffer from constipation and a friend highly recommended Pearls for me. At the beginning it started working pretty good. By the end of the second week, it was back to my constipated-state. I've been taking it for four weeks already and so far, no change.
    Totally disappointed with the product. ...more info
  • Convenient for Travel
    Traveled to China taking Pearls one a day prior to, during the trip and one a day for a few days after returning. Maintained pretty healthy digestive system while immersed in a foreign country's diet less the local water....more info

  • Still too early to tell if it's doing anything
    I've been taking this about 2 weeks now, hoping it would help with my IBS (C), especially with the gas and bloating which can get pretty unbearable. Honestly, though I have yet to feel any relief so I'm a bit disappointed because of the rave reviews. However, I'm still giving it some time to work. If there's absolutely no real relief in the next month, then I'll just have to cancel my automatic 3-months' renewal, and continue to get the other health benefits from regular yogurt:(...more info
  • Everyone needs this product
    Everyone really needs this product...replacing the "good" bacteria in your digestive system. This product actually reaches the lower digestive tract (where it needs to go). I don't go a day without taking this product and it has definitely improved my overall health. Every time you take antibiotics - you need to take this product. Most doctors are also recommending acidophilus while taking antibiotics. I highly recommend it to all adults. Actually children need it too, but they need a different type - so do some research for that item. This supplier has always shipped in a very timely manner....more info

    Don't buy this if you are prone to acne. The palm oil in this product may cause your skin to break out....more info
  • Amazing!!!!!!!
    Update to original review from 9/20/08:

    We are continuing taking the pearls daily and they are still working beautifully. The company advertises them as a way to control constipation, but they work well for us for control of diarrhea. I have accidentally forgotten to take them a couple of times now and had my symptoms come right back. These things are worth their weight in gold.

    During a recent MRI, a serious sinus infection was found & I had to take HUGE doses of antibiotics for 10 days. I did not get any secondary infections this time, either.

    I had such a miraculous recovery from all my gastro problems that my doctor asked me to get some for him & he's been amazed by them, as well. He dislikes prescribing lomotil & wouldn't take anti-diarrheals himself. He told me the last time that I saw him that he's had similar results for whatever his problems were (too much information, I didn't want to know, lol).

    Original review:

    I have spent years battling with doctors over what 'disease' I have..Crohn's/IBS/Celiac?? I suffered greatly for over 25 years with raging bouts of cramps & diarrhea. If I took Lomotil or Immodium, they would either not work or cause constipation & even more bloating and gas.

    5 months ago I went on a modified version of the Metabolic Syndrome Diet and started an exercise regimen, (I have lost over 50 lbs so far), but whole grains seemed to aggravate me even more. I experienced horrible bloating, sporadic diarrhea & a sharp pain in my lower left abdomen. My GP suggested going on Atkins, but I tried that in the 90's and hated it. I don't eat a LOT of carbs, but I wasn't about to give them up altogether!

    I can't eat sugar or milk, so most of the plethora of probiotic products on the market were off-limits, so I decided to try acidophilus. I tried the regular acidophilus tablets and they did not help at all.

    I saw these on a gold box special and thought that they made sense. It's only logical that stomach acids would alter the bacteria if eaten in yogurt or cheese (my hubby ate those stupid 'activ' cheeses for 21 days straight with NO benefit at all).

    After starting the pearls, my entire digestive system seemed to have miraculously returned to what it was in my teens within days. No gas, no bloating, no diarrhea or constipation (from immodium or lomotil, which I no longer have to take). Now I know what 'regular' means..it's wild!

    I always got diarrhea, yeast AND bladder infections from antibiotics. The last round of Cipro I took for a badly infected cut did NOT cause me any problems at all, it had to be because of the probiotics. I used to keep Monostat and Sulfa on hand at all times because of the secondary infections I couldn't avoid. No more!

    My husband had digestive problems, as well, and the pearls have caused vast improvement for him, too. The doctor hadn't been able to diagnose what was causing his varying diarrhea/constipation bouts, but they're gone & the doctor let him cancel the $1500.00 colonoscopy he had scheduled (bad insurance). Quite a savings!

    I will not be without these Acidophilus Pearls ever again if I can help it! After so many years of suffering, I'm simply flabbergasted that something this simple (& cheap) would solve both our problems so quickly. We found that it took about a week for optimal results.

    GET them, they're worth a try & they certainly can't hurt you!...more info
  • great product
    These don't need to be refrigerated like other acidophilus products, so they are very convenient....more info
  • Excellent product!
    I have found that this product is better than similar generic products. It is also very hard to find Pearls at GNC or local grocery/drug stores. I have also only seen the 90 pill count here at Amazon which is much more convenient and cost effective to buy here in bulk....more info
  • Awesome
    I have been taking these for about 2 weeks now and really feel the difference! I have had IBS-D for a few years now and had never tried probiotics. I recently started school after a summer and a new job after being jobless for 7 mo. so it was a double wammy and everything was going crazy in my digestive tract. I did some reasearch and decided these were my best bet. My digestive problems are almost gone except for some minor gas in the mornings! I'll take that any day! Give em a try, but keep in mind what works for one, might not work for another....more info
