    Im not talking bad gas im saying room clearing butt burps of death here. So loud my neice thought it was storming out and so rank i have to check my shorts to make sure i didnt shit myself.

    Also the directions said to take 1 pill with a light meal but i IF and only eat once a day between 4:30 and 6:300. Does this matter taking it with such a large meal?

    I have issues taking most probiotics also. Check your bottle. Does it contain FOS or inulin (food for the friendly bacteria)? If so, you could have issues absorbing fructose. Do you get gas when eating fruits like apples & pears? How about onions?

    I don't know why it would say to take it with a light meal...probiotics should be taken on an empty stomach. Could be a bad batch? Were they refrigerated when you bought them? If not, I wouldn't take them.

    These are by renewlife and dont have to be refridgerated. I threw the box away so im unsure if it has inulin in it and i do get gas from apples but not other fruits.

    If it doesn't have to be refrigerated, then it's not a good probiotic. They probably don't contain any viable microorganisms.

    Inaccurate.

    Freeze dried probiotic organisms are inert until they make contact with a suitable environment to awaken and begin their processes. QC testing has proven that freeze dried probiotics do indeed remain viable.

    Many of these same cultures are used from that freeze dried state to make yogurts and cheeses. If they weren't viable freeze dried, this would not be possible.

    Meh, I disagree. Just because they're freeze dried doesn't mean they don't need to be refrigerated. At 70degF viability decreases 10-15% per month. Above 80degF, the loss is more than doubled. Non-refrigeration for a short period of time will not produce a significant reduction in number of organisms - however long term optimal storage conditions are 2-4degC (36-39degF).
