Probiotic Complete - 30 Capsules
From Our Experts
Woodstock Vitamins’ Probiotic Complete - 30 Capsules was designed specifically for us, to meet our standards and provide 100% transparency into the manufacturing, temperature stability and quality of the bacteria in each capsule. We crafted our own because we want you to be completely confident that you are getting the most beneficial product for your antibiotic recovery and daily gut health.
Probiotic Complete is available in 30 and 60 count vegetarian capsules. Each capsule is sealed in nitrogen-purged aluminum blister packs to protect them from factors proven to compromise the stability of probiotics such as heat, moisture and oxygen.
This is our top pick for general GI health or for someone prescribed an antibiotic. For a higher dose version, try Probiotic Complete ES.
What’s special about Probiotic Complete?
Probiotics don’t have to be complicated. We did the hard work for you, to create a product that’s simple, to the point and has no unnecessary fillers. We are passionate about bringing you a probiotic supplement that has everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Woodstock Vitamins’ Probiotic Complete is a vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free four-strain probiotic, totaling 30 billion CFU (colony-forming unit) per capsule.
Each capsule provides four heavily researched strains of beneficial bacteria, which we feel are perfectly suited for daily use but are also strong enough to help support your gut under fire.
|Bifidobacterium lactis HN019: The extensively studied strain of B. Lactis has been proven to aid gut health and is impressively resilient within the GI system. This B Lactis is one of the most well known and respected strains in use today and for good reason.
|Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14: Commonly found in the mouth, intestinal tract, vagina and fermented foods like kefir yogurt, this strain is used widely in probiotic foods and supplements.|
|Lactobacillus plantarum Lp-115: This bacteria is isolated from plant material and is abundantly present in lactic acid-fermented foods like olives and sauerkraut. Studies have shown it has excellent cell adhesion and resistance to low pH.|
|Bifidobacterium longum Bl-05: This strain of B. longum is resistant to low pH and bile salts and found naturally in fermented foods like kimchi.|
These live microorganisms have scientifically proven health benefits and well-established safety.* They have been tested for epithelial cell adhesion and resistance to low PH.* That’s the hard science behind their holistic effectiveness.
Don’t I need more than just 4 strains?
In America, it’s go big or go home. That doesn’t have to be the case with probiotics, especially Probiotic Complete.
More strains aren’t necessarily better. In fact, more strains means more interactions between the strain types, and more chance you’ll have some competition and fighting in each of your capsules.
When it comes to dose, the 30 billion CFU found in Probiotic Complete is more than adequate because the strains we choose are so potent. Imagine hundreds of thousands of archers against 300 tanks. Probiotic Complete isn’t going to explode in your gut, of course, but it certainly is powerful!
What makes the capsules special?
To further support resistance to low pH and the delivery of microorganisms all the way down to the small intestine, Probiotic Complete uses DRcaps gastro-resistant capsules. These specifically designed innovative capsules help slow exposure of active bacteria to stomach acid and ensure more targeted release.
When should I take a probiotic?
Honestly, every day. Probiotics are one of our “Vital 5” supplements, which we believe you should take daily. Gut health affects so many aspects of your overall wellness and a lot of things can affect your gut health.
Stress, changes in diet, contaminated food, chlorinated water, and numerous other factors can alter the bacterial flora in the intestinal tract. Therefore, we recommend taking a probiotic supplement every day. A decrease in beneficial bacteria may lead to digestive problems.
Our mission was to make Probiotic Complete the best option on the market by providing the best strains at the best dose, with no unnecessary filler.
Why do I need a probiotic when taking an antibiotic?
Antibiotics do their job when it comes to destroying the harmful bacteria of an infection but they’ll also brutalize the community of good bacteria in your GI system as collateral damage. A probiotic quickly reintroduces good bacteria to the intestinal tract, where they are most needed. Probiotic Complete is the probiotic for you!
What other ingredients are in the capsule?
We’re different from other brands. The only things in your capsules are beneficial bacteria. We don’t believe prebiotics - especially the ones often chosen like FOS - belong in a probiotic. Prebiotics is a term for the other ingredients used as a food source for probiotic bacteria. Adding a bunch of other stuff to a probiotic doesn’t make it better, so we don’t do it. We believe in a no-nonsense, evidence based approach to holistic health and that sets us apart.
Why doesn’t Probiotic Complete need to be refrigerated?
The four bacterial strains we use are extensively tested to be temperature stable, meaning refrigeration is not needed. We have data to show potency through expiration for up to 2 years at room temperature.
Because no refrigeration is required, Probiotic Complete is a perfect choice for travelers and people with busy lifestyles.
Many other products out there use temperature-sensitive strains but don’t maintain the cold chain. They may be shipped with no ice or temperature controls, stored in an unrefrigerated warehouse, or displayed on an exposed shelf.
While we always respect the cold chain at Woodstock Vitamins, when it comes to Probiotic Complete you don’t have to worry about it.
What makes Probiotic Complete my best option?
Probiotic Complete meets our incredibly high standards by giving you everything you need and nothing you don’t.
We think a lot of other probiotic products out there are overcomplicated. Probiotics are living things that compete for resources, so choosing the wrong strains and/or not manufacturing them appropriately can have a dramatic negative impact on results. Many products out there use unnecessary, mislabeled, or even potentially harmful strains of bacteria!
Woodstock Vitamins is committed to cutting through the B.S. to bring you the best natural products under the highest possible level of scientific scrutiny. We are proud of Probiotic Complete, the standard of transparency it sets for the industry and the value it brings to you and your gut!

I believe the probiotic I'm taking is working out OK. I've been eating Prunes as well but it works better than laxatives. My elimination is more normal & I'm more confident exercising.
Delivery was fast and easy
Been taking this product per recommendation from Neil ( he’s the best) almost about 1 year now. All my gastrointestinal symptoms went away or subsided and I recently got a very in-depth urine culture sent out and it said my good bacteria was at 78% which my doctor said was great. Works great on a empty stomach or with food. Definitely believe in these probiotics they work wonders I will not miss a month without them.
Excellent product that put people first versus the big commercial brands out there that have a lot of unhealthy things in them.
I used to take another probiotic (not from Village Vitality). I thought it was doing its job. When I read Neal's blog about GI issues, I ordered Probiotic Complete and found the previous probiotic was not up to par. I also learned (from Neal) that probiotics should be taken every day and I hadn't been doing that. I'm glad I learned about Probiotic Complete. It does what it is supposed to do and I feel a difference when I run out and don't take it. I'll have to order a lot sooner before running out. Thank you!
