With all due respect,there are alot of health experts who say non-refrigerated probiotics are useless.
If they "die" on the shelf,how does refregerating them after they are opened make them "alive".
Like I said before Pb8 and Primal Defense says there's are bioactive off the shelf. but there writings to say this is bogus..
Many probiotic combinations lack research. Purchasing unrefrigerated probiotics simply does not make sense. You would not buy yogurt, buttermilk, sour cream and other probiotic- containing products out of the refrigerator. Why buy unrefrigerated probiotics? These products are manufactured this way only to save money. Some manufacturers also use many different cultures simply to brag about how many cultures they have. No studies exist showing they are compatible and experts agree that too many different cultures may be antagonistic to each other. Some cultures are not even normal to the human gut and may pose problems down the road. Though multiple combinations may sound enticing, proven cultures are safe, tried and tested, and we have seen the results. Having the very best cultures in sufficient quantities will outperform combinations of convenience, which are cheaper to produce and sound impressive, but are not the superior strains you need. Stick with proven, well-researched cultures
and as far as yogurt bought at the store,
Those familiar with the benefits of probiotics often consume yogurt, a long recognised source of friendly bacteria. Unfortunately, commercial yogurt often lacks sufficient quantities of this probiotic, especially for therapeutic purposes. Since commercial yogurt sits on the shelf for several days the cultures in the yogurt tend to produce bacteria-killing acids. These acids can actually destroy some of the very probiotics one seeks in a supplement.
