Today we’ll be reviewing Probiotic Pearls (I love that name), it’s one of the most affordable probiotics out there, but unfortunately, there’s a reason for that. Here’s my review.
Probiotics Pearls Full Review & Opinion
Probiotics Pearls Ingredients
Probiotics Pearls contain ONLY 1 billion CFUs (healthy bacteria) coming from 2 different strains, these include L. Acidophilus and B. Longum.
The strains themselves are actually quite good, although I’m a little bit disappointed that they didn’t include more than just 2 different strains, anyway here’s what I think about the two.
First strain, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, one of my personal favorites, as a long time probiotic user. This strain has been researched dozens, if not hundreds of times and is well known for its positive effects in gastrointestinal health and balancing the gut bacteria.
It’s also commonly known for its positive effects on reversing the symptoms of IBS and diarrhea, it also helps with lactose intolerance and is one of the best probiotics for UTI treatment.
The second strain is Bifidobacterium longum, it’s well known for relieving emotional distress (which is caused by imbalance of gut bacteria), it works especially well for treating both anxiety and depression.
Recommended daily dosage for Probiotics Pearls
The recommended dosage by Probiotics Pearls themselves is one capsule per day with a bit of food or water, but to be honest, given how minimal the bacteria count is, I wouldn’t really worry about “overdosing” on these, feel free to take multiple per day.
Probiotic Pearls Benefits
As mentioned earlier, when we were discussing the strains, there are numerous health benefits you can expect from taking Probiotics Pearls, due to the strains included, it’s especially well known for:
- Balancing gut bacteria
- Improving digestion
- Reducing bloating
- Reversing IBS and diarrhea
- Improving the ability to digest lactose
- Treating depression and anxiety
Those benefits are the ones that are listed on the product page, in terms of the benefits that I actually experienced myself, hmm, well it’s kind of tricky.
My regular probiotic (the one I also recommend to all of you) is much more potent, as it has 60 billion CFUs coming from 13 different strains per capsule, which means that it’s 60x stronger than Probiotics Pearls.
Unfortunately, due to that I really didn’t experience any dramatic positive effects, when taking this probiotic.
Probiotics Pearls Side Effects and Allergies
Fortunately, I didn’t experience any side effects when taking this probiotic, which is a bit surprising since it’s normal to experience some digestive distress when replacing or adding a new probiotic with different bacteria to your supplementation.
In regards to allergies, this product is free of gluten, sugar, salt and wheat.
HOWEVER, it does contain milk, soy and fish – both big NO NOs for many people who suffer from allergies and their main goal of taking a probiotic is to get rid of them, thus it doesn’t really make sense.

Probiotics Pearls Review
Overall, I’m not really impressed by this probiotic and nor do I recommend it.
Sure, the probiotic is cheap and affordable, but you get what you pay for and to be honest, I would rather go without a probiotic than to consume this one, just because of how ineffective it is.
There are NUMEROUS better options on the market that you can pick from, thus I’d suggest you look elsewhere.
