PRODUCT DETAILS

Description How to Use
 
Andrew Lessman’s FRIENDLY FLORA is our unique, comprehensive blend of five strains of Probiotic (Friendly Flora) species, delivering a remarkable 5 Billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) per capsule. It is intended to enhance and promote the population of beneficial Friendly Flora (healthy microorganisms) throughout our body, particularly to support our digestive, immune, urinary and genital systems. Probiotic means "for life" and Probiotics have been naturally and beneficially consumed for thousands of years. It is well established that the Friendly Flora that populate our GI (gastrointestinal) tract play a vital role in promoting healthy digestive function; as well as enhancing our ability to absorb key nutrients and maintaining healthy immune status. Friendly Flora provides five carefully selected varieties of microflora, each possessing its own unique properties, since a diverse and balanced population of Friendly Flora is required for optimum benefits. The delicate balance of microflora in our digestive system is easily upset by daily stress, digestive issues and normal aging. This fragile balance is further disrupted by medications that affect the digestive system, including antacids or even worse, antibiotics, which can wipe out our Friendly Flora. The most common source of microflora in the diet is yogurt, but it generally contains low and unreliable levels of just a single strain, and yogurt can present digestive issues, along with unwanted sugar and calories. Our Friendly Flora provides a remarkable 5 Billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) per capsule of five distinct varieties of Friendly Flora specially selected for their unique stability and bioavailability. The result is a uniquely comprehensive formula that retains its potency to ensure the benefits you seek for all the body systems that depend on Friendly Flora. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Consume one or more capsules daily or as recommended by a health care professional. This product is most effective as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle, along with one of Andrew Lessman's multi-vitamin-mineral formulas.

This was the first time that I have tried this product and I must say I absolutely love it. I often have a lot of bloating and gas but when I take just 2 of these it stops almost instantly. can't believe that I've gone through the entire bottle I will be ordering the ultimate flora next thanks Andrew
Great Product but...., Kathleen MA

This is a very good product, I took another brand before this. I have conditions that I need this for, and it is a daily part of my life. I have to agree with the people that noticed the shrinkage inside the capsule , and it turns brown. That does not look like a LIVE active product to me. I called CS about it, no real answer, but it was safe to take. What I do when I purchase this product, as I think it is one of the better ones you can find. I refrigerate my bottle. Keeps the capsules with the white powder, and no shrinkage, or brown color, which to me means lower potency, if non- existent at that point. Just my tip for those with those issues, as it works for me. I have upgraded to his ultimate. I think everyone should take the one best for you. Most Doctors just address treating you once you have a issue, I am more into treating before it becomes a problem. I want to know the product is active and working, not just a placebo capsule.

I have been taking supplements from another good company but was very expensive and wanted to save some money but get a good product. I have on only about a week and am very happy with product. This is very good on colons and since I have issues watch what I take. This is better than anything I have taken. Would recommend!

This is an amazing essential program of ingredients that are so useful for the colon and the way our whole body digests our food. This is a staple, it cannot be denied as massively important, and the unique blend of this, with the levels in this.....well, it is unmatched in quality anywhere I have searched. And for pennies per a fine powder pill that does not upset the stomach....worth the few pennies they cost me

good product but needs some help, April MI
10/7/2014
I love the digestive benefit of this product, works well! I do have a problem with the product's stability. In a short period of time the product dries out and becomes hard and compact inside the capsule. I contacted customer service and they assured me the product was safe to use. I personally did not believe this advice and am sending the unused product back. Andrew prides himself on making a product that is a fine powder and easily digested. I will only purchase this product in the 30 day supply to ensure its quality.
Take this with Omega 3 fish oil!, Marni LA
5/21/2014
I have learned from a D.O (osteopathic doctor) that if you take probiotics with omega fish oil that it will be held in the intestines longer to do a more complete job.(lay-mans terms of course) Just take this into consideration when taking this product. (This doctor also has a biochemistry background like Andrew).
Not helpful, Shirley SC

Unfortunately this did not work for me- could not tell the difference at all. This is unusual for an Andrew Lessman product to not work as well as some of the over the counter probiotics. Wish I could have returned but wanted to allow the full 30 days to see if it would work and then it is too late to return
An ESSENTIAL Supplement
1/9/2012
.......FYI: These probiotics...with FOS!.......are the healers of [ your] digestive tract....which regulates your ENTIRE health profile......If your "gut" isn't healthy....YOU won't be healthy....Shrinkage??????.......Just take the pill & let it do its job!!! Out of ALL of Andrew's products,....this Unique formula I rate at the TOP of his supplements.....something that you Really can't find anywhere else.

This product has helped my digestive system more than anything. I will not do without it. People with colon and stomach issues need to try this product.
Excellent Product
12/14/2011
I've had IBS for many years and have tried all kinds of things from diet to prescription medicines. I've been using this product for some time now and it really works for me. I know that supplements are not a cure for anything, but this product gives my digestive system what it needs to function normally. Thanks Andrew! Tim, Mississippi
Great Product
11/12/2011
I have had digestive issues for quite some time. At my sister's request, I tried Friendly Flora and in about a week my issues had disappeared. This is an excellent product especially, if you take the Digest Assure and the Aloe Vera pills along with it. Thanks, Andrew Lessman.
Love These!
9/10/2011
I have been taking this product for years. When I forget and skip a day or two, my digestive system notices the difference immediately. I take two each day and I'm most satisfied. I don't understand all of the comments about the product shrinking inside the capsule. I've never had that problem. Perhaps the people who have had this issue don't have air conditioning and it's humid in their house...that could affect the product. Overall, a wonderful product that I highly recommend. I'm on autoship, if that tells you anything!
I won't run out again..................

I have IBS and I tried this after several years of over the counter items. Even though I took it for almost 6 months (1 cap a day) -didn't know if it was much better than the store bought, UNTIL I RAN OUT!!! The difference is amazing. Apparently it takes longer to build up in your system. After being on the over the counter brands, I can't wait to get my order in the mail. Not only does it works well but is less expensive.
Won't buy again
6/29/2011
The amount of product inside the capsule was significantly less than previous purchases. Every capsule was 1/4 empty. Also I do think the Fructooligosaccharides ingredient gives me excessive intestinal bloating and gas.
Best Product Ever!
6/28/2011
I have had a chronically spastic colon all my life and many other problems with food and digestion, IBS, Crones without the polyps. Basically "Malabsorbtion", it was a coincidence that I had an appt to have blood work done, labs, the day after I had started taking this. My blood sugar was normally 63 it was 93, after just one day. My colon is so happy, and so am I. That was several years ago, and I have never been happier with this product. I am 50 now, and looking forward to everyday. The ONLY thing I DON"T Like about this company is, the sales people are trained to SELL, Hard Sell, I end up spending way too much and have to cancel some things. So I do my ordering ONLINE. Thank God for Andrew and his dedication to humans and out health...<3
I've found this works for me....
6/20/2011
First, this is a great product really helps regulate your GI tract. Second, for those having problems with the product shrinking inside the capsule...I've found that keeping this in the fridge has helped with that issue.
Shrinks in capsule
5/2/2011
This product shrinks to tiny gooey wad in the capsule. Since the cap is clear it is very obvious. I threw them away rather than chance taking it. Of course it started shrinking after 5 weeks so I could not return them. I use a lot of Andrew's products and this is the only one I had trouble with. If I had tried this first I would never have bought any others.
Quality Product
1/29/2011
Friendly Flora is yet another fantastic product from Andrew. I was going through some pretty harsh digestive issues but couldn't understand why. I tried OTC remedies before without success until I found this product. I can tell you personally that this product works and works well. I use some other products of Andrew's as well but this was the first to alleviate a problem I was having. I know everyone is different but this really did work for me. Not only do we have superior products from ProCaps here, we have a very intelligent and passionate man who knows the importance of proper nutrition, uses the highest quality ingredients and who does the research for you and presents it like no other. No one else presents information and products like this anywhere that actually work, it is a breath of fresh air to see someone who actually cares. Thank You Andrew!!! Robert Pennsylvania.
Love product but don't like that it hardens
1/22/2011
I have resigned myself to ordering the small container; no more than 60 at a time b/c I too have found by the time I make it down halfway, they are shrunken and rocklike. I called and they told me they are still effective but, sorry, it is a bit disconcerting just the same. I found one way to keep tabs from hardening is to keep all the other little silica packets that come in Andrew's other bottles of vitamins and put them all into one container holding the FFlora. It seems that moisture is the enemy of these tabs! I screw the cap back on tightly (just like when you cap a fizzy soda, you know if you don't keep the air out, it will flatten). Also, do NOT sort out your FFlora tabs to put into those daily/weekly pill containers...I've tried that; it shrivels up in there in a few days! I am almost finished w/my container of 60 and not ONE Friendly Flora tab got hard. So my advice is, keep those little silica packets, don't throw them out, put as many as you can collect into one Friendly Flora container and screw the top back on TIGHTLY. Avoid putting these into those weekly pill dividers.
REALLY WORKS!
1/13/2011
I have had chronic constipation and bloating for most of my 63 years, and nothing really helped. I had IMMEDIATE relief after starting with these wonderful capsules. I only need 1 per day. I started in early November and have not had an uncomfortable day since. I too keep my meds and vitamins in a weekly plastic container and began to notice the shrinkage around the end of December (but they still worked fine), so now I keep the whole container in a Zip-Lock bag and there is no problem. I take the Healthy Hair (these also really work wonders!!!), Life RX Elite, and the Omega 3 (orange). Andrew, THANK YOU for your wonderful products!!
Tried this and avoided a doctor's appt.
1/7/2011
I have never had tummy troubles in my life. I had a cyst and was given a prescription for an antibiotic. Within two weeks of finishing that prescription, I started having significant lower abdominal pains, which over the next week or so, started to spread upward into the upper abdominal area and then into the stomach itself. One night, after all of the pain and bloating, I almost decided to go to the ER. Unfortunately, we are between jobs now and so I didn't go. I started checking online about possible side effects of antibiotics. The one I was given was (generic cefuroxime) apparently played havoc with my system. I also took time to read about probiotics, but was somewhat skeptical...I consider myself a total skeptic by nature and I'm a very difficult person to win over. I ordered the Friendly Flora, thinking this wasn't really going to matter and I'd have to go to my internist and then a Gastro. doc, racking up thousands of bills to find out what was wrong. I could not fathom paying those bills and tried this as a last-ditch effort thinking it wouldn't help. I took the FF (one a day) and within two weeks, I was almost back to normal. I have had this product for almost four weeks now and I am "back to normal!" No more pain or bloating. My stomach is flatter and calm and I saved all that money - thankfully. I selected this product due to the blend of probiotics (covering the bases) and due to my belief that Andrew does his research to bring a beneficial product to market. I am very appreciative of this product and science behind it. I watch Andrew on TV and can see that he cares about the science and quality, not to mention his integrity. Obviously, I don't recommend anyone avoiding a necessary doc's appt. In my particular case, this worked, but if anyone does feel they need to see the doc, then they should do so. I am just happy this worked for my needs after that episode after the antibiotics. Thank you Andrew, and thanks to all of your hardworking staff who make
Response to shriveled up capsules
1/6/2011
This product is excellent, one of the best Probiotics I have ever used. It took me two years in total to completely rid myself of the symptoms of bloating, gas and gastric upset on almost everything I consumed, including water! I take 1-2 each day along with my vitamin D - 7500IU, Green Foods Complex, One-a-day Minerals and Aloe on occasion to coat the stomach to stop the inflammatory response I get on occasion from foods. Probiotics are generally supposed to be stored within a particular temperature range, otherwise it decreases in potency. Think about the pH and temperature of the gut... most chemical reactions only occur when the environment is RIGHT, just as certain bacteria, i.e. acid-loving, only populate where their environment meets their ideal needs. This is a given with ANY PROBIOTIC. So if you rate this product 2 stars because it shriveled up, do a few minutes of research on GOOD PROBIOTICS and you will realize that something this natural and effective will OBVIOUSLY have specific storage instructions to maintain high effectiveness. It's common sense.
GREAT!

I recently had a portion of my colon removed due to diverticulitis. Friendly Flora has regulated my gastrointestinal tract and relieved the bloating I experienced after eating. Everyday I look forward to taking Friendly Flora because I know it helps my healing body.
Great product
10/17/2010
I had the same problem with the capsules seeming to shrink. The representative explained they just compressed since they were alive. Also I had been putting my daily vitamins in a plastic container marked for each day. I found that when I left the product in the original jar there was no problem. It may be the plastic is not good for them. I noticed also when we were having humid hot weather that was when I had problems. I find this product to be very helpful even if it shrinks.
Powder in capsules hardens & shrinks
9/30/2010
Like others have posted, the powder inside a lot of these capsules got hard & shriveled up. I do hope that Andrew addresses this issue on the product labeling & also when it is presented on HSN. Are they still effective & safe to use in this rock hard condition? Recently, I was able to salvage enough capsules that had not hardened & took one a day while on 2 consecutive courses of antibiotics. I did not develop a yeast infection or intestinal problems, which I think could have happened with so many days of antibiotics. Whether or not this was due to the Friendly Flora or if I was just lucky, I can't be sure. However, I would like to keep these on hand because I would want to take them again if I am prescribed antibiotics, but am afraid that they'd become ineffective, since they tend to shrivel & harden.
Highly recommend
9/22/2010
When I have to take antibiotics (yuck), I always take prebiotics/probiotics in order to restore intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) or you will develop bigger problems with your GI tract later in time. I will have to order Andrew's formula because it includes FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides), highly recommended, this increases the overall gastrointestinal tract health & prevents yeast infections. By the way I do take other supplements from ProCaps & currently a very satisfied customer.
Helps keep you "regular"
6/10/2010
I had never taken a pro-biotic product before but kept hearing how important it was to facilitate the growth of healthy bacteria in the intestines, so I decided to try it. I had begun to experience some occasional "irregularity", but saw an improvement after only a couple of weeks on this product. I ordered the large size, since both my husband and I take it (just one pill per day), and we have had it for several months now. The "shrinkage" problem (where it looks like a pill inside a pill, with a lot of empty space) seems to only happen to the pills that I put in our weekly pill dispensers (which are clear, thus exposing the pills to light); but the ones left in the bottle seem fine (so far), so I've decided to just take them out of the bottle at dinnertime and not put them in the pill pack at the beginning of the week with our other supplements. Anyway, it seems like a good product for anyone who just needs a little help staying "regular". {;^)
Powder in the Pills got hard
4/12/2010
I purchased the 360 size of the Friendly Flora last time, and half way down the bottle the pills got so hard I had to throw all in the trash. I read some reviews at HSN.com and noticed that several customers had the same problem. I was hoping Andrew would acknowledge this problem and comment some on his TV presentation of the product, but he didn't. Could you please address these problems for your customers?????????
This is good stuff
3/22/2010
I have taken other Probiotics products in the past and paid more for them than this but this works a lot better. I'm on my first bottle and have gotten such relief for my digestion. I go regularly and no more cramping and gnawing and heartburn. I highly recommend this product.
What a great product for digestive
2/13/2010
Friendly Flora really helped my digestive function a great deal, as time goes on I am sure the benefits will get better. You did it again Andrew another great product. I will take this for a long time. As for all the products I take they are all great products Thanks again Andrew for making great health products that work not like other products that don't work. Bill Fl.
Sorry but why?
9/29/2009
I love Andrew multivitamin I take them every day. the capsules dry out to the trash they when.
User Friendly
4/30/2009
I just started taking these. Haven't finished the whole bottle yet, but so far so good. I can feel the difference. The capsules are smaller than Andrew's other supplements, so they're definitely easy to swallow. I think these are an essential staple to our everyday diet, along with exercise and eating healthy (clean) foods. I will be adding these to my multivitamin for women daily regime. Thanks Andrew, you've done it again!
Regulated my GI system
4/23/2009
This is amazing stuff! It evened out my very irregular BM's. I used to swing from constipation to diarrhea, and now I'm as regular as clockwork. I am an RN, and I am recommending this to any of my patients who have the same problems. ... I don't get heartburn anymore. It's wonderful not to have to take another drug to "fix" something. This is natural and restores the healthy lining of the GI tract. Great product!
GREAT FOR DIGESTION & IMMUNE SYSTEM
3/1/2009
I started taking this a month ago one capsule a day. Last week, felt like a head cold and sinus infection was developing, usually happens this time of year. Took 2-3 of these capsules a day over the last week and the cold has disappeared. Several times a year I develop sinus infections and nothing but antibiotics take this away, I know this product made a difference in making me feel better. I would highly recommend this product.
