Thank you to Ultimate Flora for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Probiotics are very good for you for many reasons; they help you digest and utilize nutrients, protect from toxins, and build your immune system. Unfortunately, many people just don’t know how healthy high potency probiotics are and how imbalanced the average person’s intestinal tract is and therefore just live with digestive problems as if it’s part of life. Ultimate Flora Probiotics are an excellent way to stabilize and replenish those healthy digestive bacteria and help reduce or eliminate belly upsets.

Ultimate Flora Probiotics can help with a variety of unhealthy gut induced problems such as constipation, heartburn, gas, bloating, indigestion, and more and can even help with skin problems, raise energy levels, as well as strengthen your immune system. The Ultimate Flora Extra Care Daily Probiotic boast a 30 billion live probiotic cultures, which is extremely good for this type of product. One pill per day can give you all the benefits listed above. I have been taking this daily for almost a month and have noticed a huge improvement in my stomach issues. I am lactose intolerant and have to be mindful of my lactose intake or I start having major cramping and worse.  Throughout this month, I’ve had no stomach upsets at all, which is pretty rare for me. Plus I have noticed a major upswing in my energy level as well as my complexion being really good. Also, when the probiotics came I was battling a cold and within two days of starting taking them my cold symptoms were completely gone. I will definitely be buying more of these very soon.

Ultimate Flora also has a kids version, which offers the same benefits in a tasty, 3 billion live cultures, chewable pill. Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic is a great way to balance children’s intestinal tracts and I have noticed many of the same good changes in my children that I’ve noticed in myself. Both my kids are lactose intolerant as well so it’s good to be able to trust this product to help regulate their digestive systems when they are accidentally given too much dairy. They think the pills taste great too, so I don’t even have to fight them to take them.

I have been very pleased with the results of Ultimate Flora Probiotics and will be purchasing them in the future for my entire family. You can learn more about Ultimate Flora and their many products by watching this video and by visiting their website,, which has information about where to purchase. Many major retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, Kroger and more carry this brand.

  1. I have not heard of this brand of probiotics but I definitely believe in the benefits of taking a probiotic.

  2. Robin Wilson Said,

    I knew probiotics were good for the immune system and for your bladder/kidneys (which is why the doc had me start them), but did not know they were beneficial for the immune system in general. As lupus "survivor" this is just an added bonus! Thanks so much ~ that made my day, I need all the help I can get!

    I have actually started my kids on a probiotic and it has really kept them regular. I noticed they are sick less often too!
