18 Strain, 50 Billion

Two weeks in on the new probiotic strain. Weight loss is slow per the scale BUT definitely a reduction in waist size, sugar cravings, and food cravings. Pants are looser. I have my final meal around 6pm and am not hungry typically until the next morning, which was an issue before as I always wanted to snack in the evening. This probiotic formula is fabulous at curbing sugar cravings. Just don't have them! Will keep updating.

Only been one week since I found a probiotic formula at Whole Foods specifically for weight loss in the fridge section, but it appears to be working well; 1- 2 lb loss. I was specifically looking for a probiotic combination to test for weight loss, and Solaray was the only one I could find in an extensive section of probiotics at WF. Note: Side effects (bit of stomach pain that passes quickly) if you take it in the middle of the day vs. in the morning on an empty stomach. Def one should drink a lot of water with this product!

If anyone else has had luck using probiotics for weight loss, please write in and let us know which one!

Here are the strains in mine in case anyone is interested:
