Overview:

All things considered, I could comfortably say that Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 is an above average product. First of all, it comes at a fairly low price. When you calculate the daily costs, you’ll see that it has a cheap daily price, while still offering everything that a good probiotic should come with. For example, it has a high cell count, which is another one of the good things that it offers, and it has 10 probiotic strains which is enough diversity for a probiotic. It is also proven to help with ailments as well. There are some minor side effects, such as mild stomach pain in the first few days, but it goes away and you’ll see the positives of the probiotic afterwards. It is worth mentioning that it has milk ingredients, which doesn’t sound very good for people who are lactose intolerant or have other allergy concerns regarding milk.

All in all, it is a very good supplement, especially if you have a specific ailment and you take it therapeutically, but let’s dive into the details.

Ingredients Profile:

As I mentioned earlier, and as the name (Probiotic 10) indicates, you will find 10 different probiotic stains. Most notably, it comes with Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which is shown to help with digestive issues from the likes of gas, bloating and diarrhea. It helps with balancing cholesterol levels as well, and sometimes helps with inflammation or vaginal infections.

It’s also worth mentioning that it has Bifidobacterium Bifidum, which has been scientifically proven to boost your immune system, as well as help with your body’s battle against the flu or colds. Bifidobacterium Bifidum also helps with the treatment of respiratory infections, for example sinusitis or bronchitis.

The blend in the product comes with no less than 20 billion cells per serving, and this count, along with the sheer variety of probiotics included, you’ll find that this product is best used for specific diseases or ailments.

Allergy Concerns:

When talking allergy concerns, Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 checks all the boxes. Well, almost. The capsules themselves have no gluten, soy, fish, wheat, sugar, starch or sodium, and the product is also free of any artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors. However, one potential downside that must be mentioned is that the product, or more specifically, the capsules themselves, contain milk ingredients. Considering that a major part of the people who actually need probiotics are sensitive to milk and even lactose intolerant, this is somewhat of a disadvantage. The product also contains gelatin, and even though gelatin allergies aren’t that common, if you’re looking into this product you should know that.

All in all, unless you’re lactose intolerant or have an allergic reaction to gelatin, you shouldn’t worry. But if you’re one of those two categories, you might want to look elsewhere.

Cost/Worth:

As far as the cost and whether it’s worth it, the price for a 60-capsule box is currently $11.87. This comes out at less than $0.20 per count, and less than $0.40 per day, as you should take two capsules. This is well below the average price for a daily probiotic. However, if you factor in the fact that it’s a multi-strain probiotic which covers a lot of conditions that you might be facing, both your health and your wallet will be thankful. There are even coupons for $3 off every once in a while, which gives an even better value to an already-cheap product.

 

Side Effects:

If you’ve ever used any probiotic supplements whatsoever, you will know that there are common side effects such as gas and bloating. Even though they tend to be annoying, they’re well worth it when you factor in what you get as a health benefit.

With the Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10, the only side effects you might experience are potential stomach pains during the initial three to four days. However, it is nothing extreme or nothing unbearable, but enough to make you feel uncomfortable. After that initial getting-used-to period, the pain goes away completely, and you only see the benefits.
