What’s In The Bottle
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 address major GI issues.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need probiotics?
There are billions and billions of bacteria and other microorganisms that live inside us, called the normal flora.
Our normal flora is constantly under attack. Our diets, stress levels, medicines, diseases, or supplements can have an impact on the quality and quantity of good strains found in the gut.
If the good strains get depleted or outnumbered by the bad, we can get disease.
Probiotics are supplements that contain helpful bacteria that we take with the goal of reinforcing our normal flora and supporting gut health.
What’s the most important thing to know about probiotics?
Most probiotic products are an absolute mess. Over the years, numerous brands have been found to have poorly made products that don’t even meet their label claims.
As a result, it’s difficult to find a quality probiotic.
How is Probiotic Complete different from other probiotics?
- We selected some of the most researched strains for GI health in humans
- The dosing is solid, delivering a guaranteed 30 billion CFU right through expiration
- We are transparent about our temperature-stability, with evidence we can share proving potency at room temperature through expiration.
- The labelling is transparent, listing the specific strains and the amounts.
- The packaging is smart. We use nitrogen flushed blister packs to optimize stability and keep the product fresh.
- We don’t add in extra nonsense. We focus on making the product great.
How much probiotic do I need every day?
The dose of probiotic required is based on the person.
Many probiotics have confusing labelling. They’ll list what seems like a high CFU count, but that’s divided over 10-20 different strains.
Look for more transparent labelling to ensure you’re getting adequate doses of the strains you need.
Doesn’t this need to be refrigerated?
It’s important to know that some probiotic strains require refrigeration. Those probiotics shouldn’t be cold not just before you by them, but through the whole manufacturing process. The sad truth is, they often are not.
The strains chosen in Probiotic Complete are extensively tested to be temperature stable, meaning refrigeration is not needed. We back this up with real evidence, proving expiration for 1 year at room temperature - up to 76 F!
Because no refrigeration is required, Probiotic Complete is a perfect choice for travelers and people with busy lifestyles.
Do you use soil bacteria or bacillus bacteria?
Absolutely not. We do not believe there is any good reason to use bacillus bacteria - beyond profit. There are plenty of normal flora strains we can use that aren’t derived from the dirt. These strains have a much deeper research backing than the trendy soil bacteria, without the liabilities.
Why doesn’t your product contain prebiotics?
To stand out in a sea of competitors, some products throw everything and the kitchen sink at someone. Often, probiotics will contain the prebiotics inulin or FOS, which are compounds that feed the bacteria of the gut.
The problem is that FOS or inulin can lead to bloating or cramping in people. These prebiotics should come from the diet via fiber-rich foods.
The doses found in probiotic supplements are enough to start trouble, but often not enough to have a positive impact on the microbiome.
We do have prebiotics available, specifically arabinogalactan in Prebio Complete. Our Probiotic Complete Intensive support has the arabinogalactan as one of the ingredients as well.
Why do they recommend probiotics with antibiotics?
Antibiotics do their job when it comes to destroying the bad bacteria of an infection but they’re indiscriminate and brutalize the community of good bacteria in your GI system as collateral damage. Probiotic Complete quickly reintroduces good bacteria to the intestinal tract, where they are most needed.
What makes these 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.
Why is this a Vital 5 Supplement?
Since our guts are constantly under attack with our modern lifestyles, I believe increasing health probiotic strains on a regular basis is important.
Many of us don’t eat a probiotic-rich diet, and even if we do, the amounts are all over the place, meaning we’ll get a mixed bag of strains and doses.
A quality probiotic gives a consistent amount of the right strains, best supporting our guts without excess calories while costing less per day.
What makes Probiotic Complete the best option for me?
Probiotic Complete meets our incredibly high standards by giving you everything your 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 trust the products I get from Village Apothecary! I trust Neal’s knowledge and recommendations.
I had to take alot of antibiotics and I could tell my good bacteria needed help. Wow!!! After 4 days bowel movements improved greatly. I like the price better than expensive ones, so I can save some money and they do the job. I will be reading more info on Neil's sight about his probiotics. Would recommend these!!!
Just started taking them. No issues. :)
...and dependable, honest service, Woodstock is the place.
I had been taking it for a while, it seems good from my experience.
