Are you also one of us? Are you also a member of team #StomachGrowlsAfterYogurt? 🙂
If yes, you’re in luck! Today I’ll be sharing my 5 BEST, tried and tested probiotics that are DAIRY free and that will contribute and actually help you reverse lactose intolerance.
A year ago, before taking a probiotic regularly, I couldn’t even see yogurt… I’d instantly get gas and my stomach would go crazy. But now a year later I can actually ENJOY a cup of yogurt here or there, with no problem AT ALL! 🙂
Here are my 7 favorite DAIRY FREE probiotics, great for treating and reversing lactose intolerance.
Best Probiotic for Lactose Intolerance Reviews
The first probiotic on the list, as one of my personal favorites, is the Pure Encapsulations Probiotic Powder, let me admit something… This probiotic is actually made for kids of ages 1 and up, but adults can consume it too.
In fact, that’s the exact reason why I like it so much, because it’s for kids, it’s very very gentle on the gut and it makes me feel absolutely amazing. It also comes in the form of a powder, which you can mix into any drink, so it’s really easy to consume.
The probiotic powder contains 2.25 billion CFUs (healthy bacteria) coming from 3 different probiotic strains – this count is per a 0.5 gram scoop.
I only disliked that the powder didn’t taste too good, so I had to gulp it down rather quickly.
Dr. Bo’s advanced strength probiotic is a probiotic with 4.4 billion CFUs coming from 10 different probiotic strains, all ideal for reversing lactose intolerance.
The product is also shelf stable and another plus is that the entire family can take it, as it’s also suitable for kids.
One serving equals 2 capsules, which are small and easy to take, so that’s a bonus. In addition the product is also certified Vegan, which is excellent.
Ora’s probiotic is quite popular and a hot find on the market, because it can be challenging to find a dairy-free probiotic that also contains L. reuteri, which is an especially beneficial probiotic strain for women.
The Ora probiotic contains 6 probiotic strains and a CFU count of 16 billion, another great addition to see is that it also contains organic prebiotics from Jerusalem artichoke.
The probiotic is also shelf stable and doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge which is great, another plus is that it’s certified vegan, which is always great to see.
The only thing I dislike about this probiotic is that it doesn’t contain L. rhamnosus, as it’s a very very good probiotic strain.
If we ran a competition where dairy-free probiotics would compete against each other in terms of which one is the “most certified” as a dairy-free probiotic, this one would win. 🙂
MegaFood goes way and beyond with their certifications and testing to ensure that their products are in fact 100% dairy, gluten and soy free – this is great to see.
The MegaFlora probiotic contains 20 billion CFUs per single capsule (great to see), coming from 14 different probiotic strains, which is again a great bonus.
The only downside with this probiotic is that it needs to be refrigerated, which is quite a bummer, if you travel often and usually this also causes a probiotic supplement to lose its potency.

GoodBelly is a probiotic brand known for its probiotic drinks and shots, but recently they’ve also come out with a probiotic supplement in the form of capsules.
The Good Belly probiotic supplement is vegan – which means its 100% soy, dairy and gluten free, like the rest of the probiotics on this list.
The probiotic capsule itself contains about 10 billion CFUs per capsule, unfortunately coming only from a single strain though – which is a big bummer, since the probiotic most likely won’t be as effective at reversing lactose intolerance.
Although this probiotic is still a great choice, others are just a bit more effective in my personal opinion.
