I tried this product as I had read a lot about the research that had been done on it. Other probiotic products I had bought from local pharmacies had not helped at all so I wanted to make sure I got the real deal.

It took a few weeks of taking Culturelle but I gradually began to notice less bloating and abdominal pain that I have long struggled with. I also have had CFS for 4 years and found little relief. The Culturelle also seems to help me think more clearly and brighten my mood which has helped me function at a more normal level. This hasn't happened overnight but gradually things are looking up.

If you are looking for a probiotic that actually works I recommend you avoid the cheap pharmacy own types and go for this.
