Overview:

When you take into consideration all the things that you will read below, you will see that Phillips’ Colon Health is a unique supplement that gives you a lot of benefits, as well as plenty of flexibility in regards to where and when you take it.

What gives the probiotic supplement this flexibility is the fact that you don’t have to refrigerate it before, or even after opening. This isn’t characteristic for plenty of probiotics on the market, and gives Phillips’ Colon Health an edge over the competition. It makes it a great probiotic that you can carry along with you, and take it even when you’re traveling for longer periods of time. If you’ve ever traveled with refrigerated probiotics, you’ll know what kind of disaster that can be.

It’s also worth mentioning that you only need to take a single small capsule on a daily basis, which makes things very simple. The supplement itself is safe for children over the age of 3, which is another thing you don’t have to worry about.

There is one potential downside, however, and that is the fact that the probiotic supplement is less allergy-friendly than some other products. You won’t find a clear label on whether it has any potential allergy concerns, which isn’t a good thing if you’ve ever had problems with them. Read on as I dive into the details and see whether this should be your next purchase.

Ingredients Profile:

This specific product comes with 3 different probiotic strains. Even though you might find that some probiotics come with more strains, and offer more value for your money, this probiotic has three of the most scientifically tested and studied ones in regards to colon health.

For example, Lactobacillus acidophilus is an excellent strain for battling diarrhea. You can go against anything from children’s diarrhea, travelers’ diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease or even diarrhea that was caused by antibiotics. For these situations, this probiotic is a great choice, as you can take it with you and it’s safe for children over the age of three.

Another example is Bifidobacterium longum, which is shown to help with constipation, as well as bloating and gas. And, it also supports a healthy immune system. All in all, with this combination of strains, this probiotic is a great tool to have in your arsenal.

Allergy Concerns:

This is one of the areas where this specific product might cause some issues. The manufacturer states that it cannot guarantee that the product will be 100% gluten-free, because it is manufactured with other products which contain gluten. There is also no clear specification whether the product has any soy, eggs, fish, wheat or milk, which are major allergens.

It does include gelatin, potato starch and silicon dioxide. What all of this translates into is that if you have any allergy concerns, you might want to look into another product. However, if you don’t have any of these issues, you’re absolutely safe with this and can use it.

Cost/Worth:

The current price for the Phillips’ Colon Health is $8.49 for 15 pills ($0.57 per pill), $10.65 for 24 pills ($0.44 per pill), or $19.98 for 60 pills ($0.33 per pill). The option with 60 pills is by far the most economic one, as it’s almost twice as cheap as the cheapest one, if you look at the prices per pill. Depending on which option you go for, you’ll find that it’s usually below the average asking price for this kind of probiotic, which is very nice.

Side Effects:

As with any probiotic, the appearance of some side effects is something to be expected. This specific product might result in some mild stomach pain, which is by far the most common side effect. However, unlike with some other products, with Phillips’ Colon Health the effects are gone after two or three days, and you’ll feel great afterwards. What this means is that the side effects are as negligible as with any other probiotic, but when you factor in all the benefits, it becomes obvious that it’s a great product. Note that you should be taking this product with a meal.
