Great Product!!!!

Posted by iHerb Customer on February 6 2008 | Verified Purchase

I had ulcerative colitis for over 5 years and had a surgery performed in 2002 to remove my colon, - Restorative Proctocolectomy. After the surgery, I had a number of episodes of Pouchitis, which is treated with antibiotics. My surgeon suggested I try Probiotics on a daily basis to see if there is a reduction in the recurrance of Pouchitis. I tried a number of Probiotics, with some benefits. Then, on searching the web for Probiotics, I came across the 'Nature's Way, Primadophilus Optima 35 Billion CFU'. I have been taking one capsule on a daily basis for the past six months and only had two bouts of Pouchitis which was a great change form the four in six months I use to have before. I am hoping and feel confident that with the continued use of this product, the recurrance of Pouchitis will be completely eliminated. Thank you. Elias Varachia

Great product but..

Posted by iHerb Customer on September 1 2008 | Verified Purchase

I like the fact that iHerb attempts to ship it cold, but I chose expensive next day delivery and the product and ice pack were already warm so that defeated the purpose of choosing fast delivery (it was not an especially warm day either). Obviously the package could have used another ice pack or two. Despite this, the product still seems to work quite well and has the highest count and mix of probiotics I have found. I just don't know how much better it could/would be if it were kept cold in transit. Also, I have found a much better price elsewhere online, which was surprising, since iHerb always seemed to have great prices on other products I have ordered.

Don't Leave Home WIthout It

I've struggled with joint and muscle pain for years and this product has gotten rid of all my pain. Was diagnosed with Fybromyalgia in 1997.

Thanks for your feedback!

Excellent Shipping

Posted by iHerb Customer on December 4 2008 | Verified Purchase

I greatly appreciate the fact that IHerb sends this perishable product in a refrigerated container! I bought this same product from another internet dealer, and they sent it to me in a regular (non-refrigerated) container, thus jeopardizing the viability of the bacteria.

Arrived on a hot day from UPS, but still seem to have some potency

Posted by iHerb Customer on July 17 2010 | Verified Purchase

I remember when they were delivered, the cardboard box from the UPS truck was quite warm. I started to wonder if they were still fully potent. Still, they seem to make a difference in my stools: bulkier, more moist, easier going. (Sorry if that's gross. It's meant to be clinical.) Also, I tried cold fermenting a bowl of of steel milled oat meal in lukewarm water by mixing in the powder from one of these capsules and letting it sit for a day and a half. Then I cooked it. It seemed to work, so there's definitely some live bacteria left. It was kind of like "sourdough oatmeal" if that makes sense.

Can be shipped without ice pack according to Nature's Way

Posted by iHerb Customer on June 17 2009 | Verified Purchase

I just recently ordered Primadopholis Optima and was surprised to see that when I received me order from iHerb, it was in a regular cardboard box with no ice pack. I've ordered other items that required refrigeration from iHerb.com before and received them on ice. I contacted iHerb and was told that Nature's Way told them it's okay to ship without ice. Just out of curiosity, I also contacted Nature's Way and this was the response I received: Primadophilus Optima can be out of refrigeration for a few days without losing the potency. We add extra cultures to allow for the product to be out of refrigeration for shipping and manufacturing. But for long term storage in order to hold the potency the product should be stored in the refrigerator. At least I know that I'm not losing anything in shipment. I will have to give it a few weeks before posting a review about the product itself.

Tried many probiotics, so far this is the only one that worked

Posted by iHerb Customer on June 13 2011 | Verified Purchase

I was 30 pounds under weight and looked like hell. My ND had me try 2 other probiotics until we came to this one. Reduced gas, firmer stools, and gained my regular weight back. I buy it from Whole Foods though because I want to make sure its refrigerated.

Thanks for your feedback!

Taking this as well as Primadophilus Reuteri

Posted by iHerb Customer on March 15 2011 | Verified Purchase

Hard to know which is having the good effect so far, but I especially wanted to comment on the way they were shipped. The packaging in a Styrofoam box with a cold pack got them to me still refrigerated. That seems to have preserved their activity, since I've noticed definite improvement in my symptoms. A year of searching for a solution and this is the first improvement. I had previously used Optima alone, but it was not refrigerated, so may have been inactive.

Thanks for your feedback!

Nature's Way, Primadophilus optima, True Potency 35 Billion

Posted by iHerb Customer on June 1 2010 | Verified Purchase

Fantastic product really helped me with my digestive tract, I had a rash and I was taking anti-biotics I went off the anti-biotics because it wasn't doing anything to clear the rash. Started taking the 35 billion Primadophilus optima, the rash cleared in a week. I hope this helps.
