I used these probiotic pearls while taking a full body cleanse two years ago after my son was born. Probiotics are essential for a healthy digestive system and a healthy digestive system is essential for overall health. These pearls helped to replace the good bacteria or probiotics that the cleanse wiped out. I love the pearls because they were so incredibly easy to take. Anyone can take these because they are so small. They still have a lot of good bacteria in them even with being so small. They are also wonderful for taking along with antibiotics to again replace the good bacteria your digestive system needs. I would definitely recommend these probiotic pearls to anyone wanting good overall health through an overall healthy digestive system, needing to replace good bacteria due to antibiotic use or a cleanse, and anyone that has an issue with big pills.
