Occasionally, people will experience increased gassiness or cramping for the first few days of taking a new probiotic supplement.  This may be due to an existing gut imbalance, and can also be influenced by diet.  In most cases, it will only last a few days as the gut becomes accustomed to the rebalance of bacteria. 

 If gas or cramping continues more than a few days we recommend taking a capsule every other day for a while, and that the dose be increased gradually as gas subsides.  If gas is still present even after this, a lower dose probitoic is recommended. Our FloraSmart line offers lower dose probiotics. 

Also, the shelf life of our probiotics is quite high, especially if stored in a dry, cool place.

I started taking the 15 billion ultimate flora about a month ago before bed and started getting bad stomach cramps after the first day.  I only took it for 2 days.  Is this common and should I be avoiding certain food or drink while taking it (tomato sauce, orange juice, etc...)? 

Now that the bottle has been opened for a while, how long does it last opened?

What would be causing the cramps?
