Sara, when you get the bottle, you'll see that per dose, it's much less expensive than most high quality probiotics - the child size serving scoop is TINY. So more cost upfront, but put it in the freezer, and it lasts a long time.

Yes! I've tried multiple brands and he always had negative reactions (which I thought, well this must be die-off) but it would get so bad w/out any positive results, so I would always quit after a week and a half or so. He's always been fine w/ homemade whole food probiotics, but I just feel he needs *more* than that.

So, this is SOOOOO exciting!!!

Yup, BTDT - that's how we figured out he reacted to d-lactate producing strains (e.g. L. acidophilus) and FOS - and pretty much every probiotic has at least one of those.

So, can we get an update on all of this? Those that are using Custom Probiotics (Specifically CP-1), how is it going? I bought a bottle earlier this year, but kept putting it off and haven't opened it. I now see that the expiration date is 11/11 so...I think I'm just going to leave the bottle closed now. I'm curious to learn more about Natren and how it compares to CP.

 

Thanks.

I have used it with my kids and myself.  My DS never had a normal BM till he was off all his allergens and gluten (celiac) AND we did these.  I love them and recommend them any time anyone asks!

Yes,

 got started on them two years ago.  Worked up to ten a day in divided doses.  As I went up my bloating and IBS symptoms lessened, after a year of that and the GAPS diet, felt really great.  I stay on them about 3 to 6 per day of Adult CP-1.

They are the best probiotics of the many I tried.  I also used some herbal antifungals at mealtimes and the probiotics morning and night.

good luck
