Compare REVIEWS: Perfectbiotics vs Culturelle
Doesn’t live up to expectations – Alex who bought Perfectbiotics complained in his review that he found it to be a hugely underwhelming product that just didn’t live up to the expectations. Firstly he was surprised that there was no information on the box or the website and he had to go looking for it all over the place. Finally when he tasted the drops he found them to be like watered down grape Kool Aid. He was disappointed that he had paid $70 for 12 unique probiotic strains and the end results were nothing special. He had no idea how many CFUs were present in it and he found the price to be quite steep too. He was also curious that you are told to take 4 drops twice a day with meals, or 6 drops three times a day for better results. But that would mean finishing the bottle a lot earlier than 30 days it is meant to last. Thankfully it comes with a 60 day money back guarantee, according to him. He also believes that the plus side is that it is gluten, soy, wheat, dairy free and vegetarian.
Raises a lot of doubts – Glen who used Perfectbiotics revealed in his review that though you are told there are 12 unique probiotic strains in the supplement, they are never really revealed. That raised a lot of doubts in his mind although he likes the strain Bifidobacterium longum, which offers intestinal support, boosts immune function and decreases inflammation on body and skin. It also has a positive impact on constipation, inflammatory bowel symptoms and reduction of cholesterol. He also liked the strain Streptococcus Thermophilus, which reduces respiratory infections, lactose intolerance and can avoid kidney stones. But not having all the strains mentioned didn’t put his mind at rest.
Lack of information – Stewart who reviewed Perfectbiotics exposed in his review that though it might be free of allergens, it doesn’t really mention it explicitly. He also talked about other ingredients present in the product and found it alarming that their exact amounts were not mentioned anywhere. He was wary that he might be having too much of one mineral. He was also shocked by the cost, which is four times your regular probiotics. Thankfully he did not experience any side effects and was happy about the fact that the probiotic comes with a 60 day money back guarantee. For more Perfectbiotics reviews visit this page.
Diminishing quality – Kaare who used Culturelle complained in his review that having used them for a long time he can tell that their quality is not the same as it used to be. The capsules break open while you push them through the pack. The contents also turn yellow and clumpish rather than a fine white power, which is quite undesirable. Overall he quite likes the idea of taking probiotics, particularly before and after taking antibiotics, because they can replace the good bacteria, which is destroyed. But unfortunate part for him was that there was no specific information on how much good this probiotic was actually doing for him.
Doesn’t show any results – Svetlana who reviewed Culturelle exposed in her review that she bought it with great expectations but it did not make even the slightest difference to her body and her overall wellbeing. That made her wonder if it was just sugar or flour, and didn’t contain any so called probiotic strains. She also had an episode of diarrhea after taking it and that was a bit disconcerting.
Doesn’t work for long – Ron who bought Culturelle revealed in his review that though he saw some positive difference initially, the results stopped showing after a couple of months. He wondered if that was because it stopped being effective or his body just got used to it. Things he liked about it were that he could open the capsules and give the powder to the kids while using the capsules for essential oils. He wished these probiotics came with an enteric coating so that they could survive stomach acids and get to the intestines where most of the bacteria are located. He was also not happy with the price of the probiotic, which he found to be exorbitant, especially when compared to other options out there.
