Best probiotic I've taken! I also buy it for my Dad as we both have problems from stomach to exiting. It's costly but worth every penny & Thrive's price is fantastic!

Keeps me healthy

I swear my regular use of these probiotics is what has kept me healthy even when my family had the flu and I was caring for them. They keep me “regular”. I love that they don’t need refrigeration and I can throw one sheet into my purse so in case I forget to take one on the way out the door, I have them in my bag and I’m not carrying around a bottle of pills.

These work!

I usually just take probiotics because I know they're useful but can't really see the difference. I felt better as far as digestion and energy within a week of taking this brand! I wish they wouldn't use an artificial coloring in it but I assume it's in such a small quantity it shouldn't be harmful.

I use these are myself and my kids and we love them. I cut the tip of the capsule and squeeze into applesauce for my kids and for myself the capsules are small and easy to take. Great quality!

Fermented pro/pre/postbiotics

I find the blister packs so convenient especially for travel. No refrigeration necessary. I can't say I feel super human but I have noticed I didn't get sick when others around me have. I was introduced to this product by my holistic doctor and she's pretty picky about the supplements she endorses.
