Hi, anyone have any experience with this? It's supposedly acid-proof which makes sense if we want it to get to the back end of our digestive tract. Curious to find out what people think about it.

Hi Jeff- sorry it took me this long to answer your question.... I misplaced this link. Anyway, the acid proof delivery system includes sodium alginate- a derivitive of seaweed. When it hits the stomach acid, it is transformed into alginic acid which forms a gel barrier around the live probiotics. Once it empties into the small intestine, which is more or less pH neutral, it transforms back into sodium alginate and allows the probiotics to be released. Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. (I'll make sure to earmark this site!) Sincerely, Sarah MSI

You guys using the supplement or other proBs, do you also eat fermented veg like kimchi sauerkraut etc? Just wondering. I eat a lot of fermented veg so I've never taken the supplements but I wonder of I might do both nthanks.
Sorry to ask a question in the answer box but I wanted to address all the commenters.
