I can help you decide if this probiotic supplement fits your needs. What I will say from personal experience with it that it was one of the first probiotic supplements I took. I like that they offered a gluten-free, dairy-free supplement that said so right on the label when I was trying to navigate the gluten-free world many years ago. Unlike today's circumstances, before the words "gluten-free" were nearly common knowledge and had a meaning, it was very hard to find products I could trust. I trusted this product.
In addition to taking a supplement, I encourage you to explore the world of naturally-fermented whole foods and drinks and probiotic-fortified foods and drinks.
Many thanks to Nancy for suggesting a review of this gluten-free dairy-free probiotic supplement!
