Overview:

If I had to say something about the NOW Probiotic 10 in one sentence, I would undoubtedly say that it is a great product that you won’t regret getting. It is noteworthy that it has a cell count of 25 billion, which is a little high if you’re using this as a daily probiotic. However, if you’re taking it to treat a specific disease or ailment, or if you’re taking it after you’ve taken a course of antibiotics, you will find that the number is spot on.

Since food, as well as other allergies are becoming extremely common nowadays, you will appreciate the fact that the product is created with a goal to avoid any major allergy concerns. It may also even give you a relief from your problems, such as a stuffy nose or sneezing if you suffer from seasonal allergies, for example.

The suggested dosage is 1-2 capsules, between meals or on an empty stomach. You should remember this, because a lot of probiotics might recommend that you take them with a meal, but this is an exception. A good habit would be to take it when you wake up, so you don’t have to worry about it causing you any problems with food.

There’s a potential downside to it, however, and that is the fact that it must be kept refrigerated at all times. Those conditions are necessary to keep the probiotics alive, so they affect you like they’re supposed to. It is a question though, whether it was kept refrigerated at the warehouse, or during transport.

Ingredients Profile:

The NOW Probiotic 10 comes with ten different probiotic strains, but I will focus on only a few of them. For example, it has Lactobacillus plantarum, which has been proven to help with slowing down the growth of bacteria that might cause problems such as bloating or gas. It also helps with the integrity of the intestinal lining of your body. And, last but not least, it could help people who are looking for a small boost in the antioxidants.

There’s also a sugar known as Fructooligosaccharides in the capsules, which helps growth of friendly bacteria in the colon, and it has become more common within a lot of probiotic supplements nowadays, which speaks a lot.

Among the negatives, you should know that the probiotic also contains Lactobacillus casei, which tends to be a bit more aggressive than necessary and occupy areas in your body that some other probiotics might have already taken.

The number of 25 billion live cultures in 10 different strains means that you can use the NOW Probiotic 10 for quite a few uses.

Allergy Concerns:

When it comes to allergies, this product is very hard to beat. It almost seems like it has been made for people who have various problems with allergies, since it has no gluten, no soy, no wheat and no dairy, to ensure that anyone can take it. It also comes with a Good Manufacturing Practice quality assurance, which is another bonus. And, another important thing, the probiotic is vegetarian and vegan friendly as well. All in all, an extremely good package in terms of allergies and food specifics.

Cost/Worth:

The cost of the probiotic is currently $14.39. This comes out at $0.29 per capsule, and depending on whether you take one or two per day, either $0.29 or $0.58 on a daily basis. This is a very good price, especially when you factor in that you get a lot of benefits for your money. It’s a high quality multi-strain probiotic which is without a doubt worth its asking price. You can even get a three-pack for $39.99, which makes the final price per capsule even cheaper.

Side Effects:

Having side effects with probiotics nowadays has become fairly common, but it is still a fairly serious downside to such products. You’ll be happy to know that the NOW Probiotic 10 comes with absolutely no side effects whatsoever, no gas, no bloating and no stomach pains. In a market where side effects, even small ones, are a common sight, this supplement is very welcome.
