    So I've been ordering probiotics on amazon for about 7 years now, not consistently usually once a year. i'd say 90% of the time that they get to me they are dead before they arrive, even the shelf stable ones are old. Does anyone know a good vendor on amazon who keeps them fresh and sends them with a cooler pack?

    Are you in the US? There's a few places I order from that have fresh stuff and will use ice if you want to pay

    I find amazon products consistently change vendors. Obviosly not reliable for that kind of stuff

    One is www.pureformulas.com

    Iherb
    Natural healthy concepts might.

    I read the reviews for vsl3 from the link @Antares in NYC gave and not only did a person say it helped his ulcerative colitis but also joint pains. That's remarkable. I will have to give it a try. I need to go back and read what strains it has. Maybe I should do tests for the right probiotic but my wallet can't take many more hits at this moment. Although I need to try something. I hear probiotic + resistant starch has really helped some people. I guess I'll be my own doctor a while before I strike it rich.

    • Bifidobacterium infantis
    • Lactobacillus acidophilus
    • Lactobacillus plantarum
