    Customer Questions

    All questions answered by probiotic experts Dr Kate Stephens PhD (Food and Microbial Sciences) BSc(Hons) Medical Microbiology and Kerry Beeson BSc (Nut. Med.) Nutritional Therapist.

    Should I take live cultures every day?

    Yes, it is safe and generally advisable to take live cultures daily. Good bacteria colonise in the gut for a few weeks but research1,2,3 suggests that the good bacteria strains will not persist in the gut without regular supplementation, so for this reason you might wish to take them regularly.

    Can you take live cultures long term?

    This depends on why you are taking them: some people like to take specific strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, when travelling abroad, or during the winter flu season. However, if you prefer general daily supplementation, then take your supplements every day. There is no current research to suggest the body becomes dependent on good bacteria, so long-term supplementation is also fine.

    • I am surprised and amazed at how quickly these probiotics worked. I started taking them for bloating caused by certain foods and within a few weeks the bloating had stopped.

      Helen Appleton - 25th February 2021

    • This product causes me severe bloating. Not for everyone unfortunately.

      EM - 13th February 2021

    • I have tried 3 courses of "For every day" probiotics without any noticeable effect whatsoever, unfortunately. The sachets (expensive) sprinkled on breakfast cereal taste good and the company deal well with the orders, so two stars for that.
