Hello all you probiotic fans.
I'm glad you are so interested in wanting to build and nourish the community within.
I would recommend to just save your hard earned dollars and make your own sauerkraut.
Here is a few quick reasons to go this route instead of buying probiotic supplements.
-The count of microbes was at the date of manufacture, and no matter how you store it (unless it has a continual food source) the cell counts are constantly dieing. So when you get it a few months later, it may have lost as much as two thirds the cell count.
-you actually know what your microbes were grown on.
-no toxic excipents
-Up to 10 trillion live microbes per gram
-28 or even more variety of probiotics
-The varieties aren't isolated, grown and recombined for packaging. They grow in a well balanced ecology (cabbage substrate) that closely matches your balanced ecology in your gut.

In the mean time, get some organic cabbage, sea salt, massage and jar it. In one weeks time you'll have more live active probiotics than the whole probiotic section of your health food store!
Ferment for your health!
