(N.B., i found the ingredients listed at some other web pages to be incorrect; e.g. they would show the YB ingredients for the IC product. Amazon does not give ingredients for all different types)
(I also read in another review here on Amazon that L. Plantarum is an anti-microbial, and good for dealing with candida, bacterial, or fungal infections)
If you want to get all the strains, you cannot buy just one type. You must buy two: either YB & IC, or Elite & IC.

I have suffered from constipation for 7 years (following thyroid removal surgery)and everyone knows that constipation makes acid reflux worse. I've tried increasing water and fiber, but it only made things worse. I stopped eating meat 4 years ago but that didn't help. Yogurt made me sick to my stomach. I exercise and am NOT overweight (only weigh 117).
Only 2 days after starting Pearls, I started having bathroom visits at least twice a day. The bloating is gone, the nausea is gone and the reflux (although not completely resolved), is way, WAY better. I take the lowest dose of OTC Zantac and now only take it every once in awhile. Before Pearls, I was taking Zantac every few days. Acid blockers make constipation WORSE--avoid them! I take one Pearls in the a.m. before eating and one in the evening, usually after dinner.
If you have problems with constipation, I highly recommend trying Pearls. GNC sells the 30-day supply for $16. Amazon sells the 90-day for only $15 (w/ subscribe & save). YAY!!!!
I used these pearls for several years with great results, but that has changed. (Please see my additional followup below)
First let me say that I know what Acidophilus is. But there is no reason that it should have any lactose, if ineed they do. I'm not ALLERGIC to milk, only very sensitive to lactose, huge difference. But there are people out there with milk allergies, so this is important.
I don't know if this new labeling is a cover-your-butt legal thing or if there really IS milk/lactose left in them, but I was made VERY ill by them, read on:
I used to be able to take these pearls to balance out my IBS-D issues, but no more. This product will still work just fine for those with CONSTIPATION, it certainly kept me in the bathroom for several nights, sicker than I've been in a long time.
I have IBS-D accompanied by severe lactose intolerance.
The acidophilus pearls used to help me a lot. I stopped using them for a while and had switched over to their Probiotic Pearls, which are more expensive, but work beautifully for me and friends who have constipation, too. It seems I've 'sold' these to everyone I know with gut problems.
This time, I didn't have twenty dollars and bought the acidophlius pearls again at only fourteen dollars with Subscribe and Save (which is cheaper than they've ever been).
When the package came, I should have returned them as soon as I read the new labeling that said that there could be MILK residue in them (that wasn't on the packaging before), but I was so afraid of being even sicker without them, so I took them anyway.
I put down the first couple days of trouble to having run out for a couple of days. My diet hadn't changed, it had to be the pearls. I stopped taking them after 3 days and the after-affects continued for another 4 days. I even went to the doctor to see if I had an infection and I didn't. I can't take Immodium, so I just had to tough it out. What misery.
If you're using probiotics for constipation, great, these should help. For those of us using them to help balance out a gut with IBS-D or lactose intolerance, go for the more expensive ones without the acidophlius. I lost 8 pounds in 7 days in the worst possible way.
The milk disclaimer should be on the web page and so I should be able to return these. I will be contacting Amazon and the manufacturer about it.
I did contact the manufacturer and spoke to their medical rep. They use milk as the growth medium and there is a very small chance that some lactose will be present in the probiotics. Apparently I got a batch that did. I was asked to return them and received a full refund very quickly. They were very polite with me about it.
I am satisfied that the company took care of this issue for me, though I'm sorry it had to happen in the first place, though it was probably just bad luck on my part (and poor judgement, I shouldn't have taken them after reading the disclaimer). I hope that the product page will be updated to reflect that there is a chance that small amounts of milk can be present in the product.
