The length of time for the expiration date or “best used before” date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Supports a Healthy Digestive and Immune System
8 Strains and 30 Billion Colony Forming Units
Survives Stomach Acid
Healthy Origins Probiotic 30 Billion CFU’s is a powerful blend of 8 friendly bacteria strains and 30 billion colony forming units (cfu’s) which can help support a positive balance of microflora in the intestines. Supplementing with probiotics may help to maintain friendly bacteria colonies which can be depleted by stress, antibiotics, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
Probiotic 30 Billion CFU’s bacteria strains survive harsh stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract where they exert their greatest benefits.
**Probiotic 30 billion CFU’s is stable while refrigerated or stored at room temperature (~70°F).
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) Vcap once or twice daily with or before a meal.
I am a beliver in probiotics. However poor shelf life can be an issue. Probiotics are not stable for very long at room temperature. If the temperature goes higher there are no guarantees what may be left living.
This is no disrespect to iHerb, but I now buy my probiotics from a health food store that keeps them refrigerated or I buy from a vendor that will ship them in ice packs. This was not shipped in Ice. Infact the manufacturer says it is not required. Regardless of that, I keep mine refrigerated.
I highly recommend to keep your probiotics refrigerated. Even if it claims to be ok not to do so.
Also, look for glass bottle packaging or individually packaged capsules (blister packaging) as this will help with the shelf life.
Look for a broad range of strains in any probitic you buy. Seven or more. The Lacto bacteria are for the small intenstine and the Bifo are for the large intestine.
You can also take a prebiotic(food for the probiotic) that will help the probiotics thrive. Prebiotics include inulin, FOS, and foods like onions, garlic, bananas and leeks. Also consider NAG.
Take your probiotic on an empty stomach with water mixed with bit of lemon or lime. This will help it move through the stomach faster (stomach acid will kill them) and into the intestine where it needs to be.
I did use an entire bottle of this product and I found very little benefit from it. Probaly for the reasons I outlined above.

I’ve had 2 bouts of stomach flu within the last 6 – 8 weeks & during that time I was taking another brand of probiotic with 7 billion CFU’s.
I saw this product on iherb and decided to give it a go, I commenced taking these about a week after my last bout of stomach flu and during the first 4 days experienced bloating, gas & diarrhea. I was almost going to throw these away in disgust thinking I had caught the tummy bug yet again and the probiotic wasn’t working but I read online reviews that advised what I was experiencing are common side effects when taking probiotics and symptoms usually last between 1 – 2 weeks.
So I persevered.
After the 4 days my tummy settled, I was still a little bloated and has loose stools. During the next 3 – 4 days I developed a mid range fever, after more research I found that this is a less common side effect that is thought to be caused by a disruption to the immune system either by the introduction of the good bacteria or the good bacteria actually doing their job and killing off the bad bacteria. So again I persevered.
I have now been taking these a little over a week and the symptoms have all gone, I am starting to feel a lot better than I have in a long time (I have experienced loss of energy and general malaise since November when i had a bad chest infection). It does feel as though these good little bacterial guys have fought off all the bad stuff that has been in my system and I am now feeling refreshed and energized.
I have already repurchased the larger size bottle and will continue to take these supplements.
I’ve being suffering from several years from GERD symptoms like sore throat, coughing, burping, a feeling like there was something stuck in my throat and voice changes. After spending thousand of dollars with medics and exams they said I didn’t have anything so I decided to investigate it myself and gave a chance to probiotic. All these symptoms started to improve 3 days after I started taking it (I use 2 or 3 pills a day). Also, some skin problems like Keratosis Pilaris seems to be improving. My allergies are getting better and I feel very energetic because I no longer have digestion problems. Will buy these pills as long as they produce. Healthy Origins has the best amount (in billions) of good bacteria than other brands. Oh, they also survive in room temperature which is fantastic. 5 stars!!
First, I would like to begin with the disclaimer that I have only been using this probiotic for about two weeks, so I cannot speak on behalf of the long term efficacy of this probiotic. This said, I began using this product to help eradicate candida symptoms that have been present for over a year; most likely brought about due to my insatiable thirst for really tasty beer and wine. I have tried several other probiotics available through iHerb.com, mostly in the CFU range between four billion to about 15 billion. Although, I did notice some improvement in my digestion using the aforementioned probiotics, I did NOT notice any unequivocal changes in my candida symptoms; they just appeared to be kicking the can down the road and not actually treating the real problem. Not true with this product. After the first three to four days, I had one evening of strong diarrhea and terrible gas for about a week. I was almost ready to give up on the Healthy Origin probiotics because they appeared to be too much for my tender digestive tract, but then I realized that these reactions must be “die-off” symptoms of candida albicans. Hey, this actually could be working?! About one week later, I am experiencing even better digestion and almost zero gas or bloating after meals. I have also noticed better sleep quality and a clearer head. To my wonderful surprise, I believe this probiotic is actually doing what it is supposed to in terms of rebalancing my digestive tract; although, a full review and five star rating is contingent upon longer use. To sum up, so far this probiotic appears to be working well to reduce my candida symptoms and bring a balance to the healthy bacteria in my gut. I use this product along with Saccro B by Jarrow and Vitamineral Green by Healthforce Nutritionals. I have had good experience with both of those products in the past. I am also using a Zeolite product from Healthforce and Bragg’s ACV to keep a well oiled system, but that is neither here nor there, as the focus of this review is on Healthy Origins probiotic. Good luck in your journey towards a balanced and well oiled digestive system. Remember, the gut is your second brain!
When I first took this I had diarrhea for 4 days. I also had flu-like symptoms for a day. My gut would rumble with gas minutes after digesting this probiotic.
However, after those first 4 days the die off symptoms subsided. I guess it killed a lot of yeast. So if you experience any die off symptoms, just push forward and the symptoms should go away eventually.
I am also very happy with the fact that Healthy Origins, Probiotic, 30 Billion CFU’s does not contain vitamin C, which kills both bacteria (good and bad) and virus. I appreciate vitamin C’s antibiotic effect but I don’t want to take both probiotics and antibiotics at the same time.

After reading that consuming probiotics during pregnancy was shown to reduce the risk of the baby developing allergies I thought I’d give it a go. However the good effects seem to be for mum too! Part and parcel of pregnancy is usually UTI’s, constipation and heartburn but I am happy to say I have none of these symptoms so far. This is a relief after particularly suffering with bad heartburn in my last pregnancy. Please click ‘yes’ if you found this review helpful and click my NaturalMum link above for more reviews on pregnancy/nursing friendly natural beauty products, vitamins and supplements.
Maybe these sat in a hot truck before making it to New Zealand, but these probiotics were completely useless for me, even when taking 3 a day. I tossed these and ordered my (more expensive) preferred brand, which keeps my GI system running smoothly.
har vert plaget med magen/tarm. Probiotic virket etter noen få dager og magen er nå god normal. har lagt inn ny bestilling og kommer til å bruke disse fremover.
I bought this twice but did not notice any improvement on regularity, however, today I’ve had my first tablet of Dr Ohira’s probiotics and I went to the toilet 3 hours later!
When I bought these approx. 1 month ago, I was really looking forward to helping the gut, especially when I tend to go heavy with the carbohydrates. But then about 3 days ago, I was reading on how to find out if the good bacteria were active or not in the product ordered. Well, I did the test with warm milk, added 2 capsules in 4 oz. of milk, waited 24 hrs, and then seen there was no changes at all with the milk. No thickness, no lumps, nothing. When this was shipped, it was extremely hot in California, and now I believe this product should of been shipped with dry ice. Its known to be shelf stable, but that’s at Room Temperature only. Especially when it was known at IHerb that I live in CA. and in a high desert to boot. It would of went on a USPS truck all day in 100+ heat. Totally destroyed and waste of money.
A-mazing! Seriously. Different strains work differently for different people, but honestly this is THE BEST probiotic I have ever put in my body. I feel better the past two days after taking it for 3 than I have in as long as I can remember. I can’t recommend it enough. Many strains including bifido in a high count and super inexpensive in comparison to others that claim their efficacy.
I have suffered from constipation for many years but since taking this product I don’t have to use anything else to keep things moving. It makes me a bit windy but it’s a small price to pay for the relief it gives. Not having to refrigerate it is an added bonus & iHerb gets top marks for service & value for money.
I am pregnant and I read that probiotics are really important during pregnancy, as they can help avoid autism. I take them on empty stomach and I keep them in the fridge to ensure freshness.Dr Mercola complete probiotics are very good too!

This is the only one with out MOS; FOS; INULIN. Wich is not god for a bad stomach. This are sugars that are food for good and bad bacteriea. So if you stomach is realy bad stay away for oligosaccharides.If you stomch is not so bad you can have them. I can not but my daughter can.
Our local hospital analysed a selection of probiotics selected from local stores. Amazingly 2 of them had absolutely no living probiotics in them and ALL of the rest of them had extremely small %’s of probiotics: instead of 16Billion, only 70 million! None of the companies had anywhere near the advertised potency….
so…. I was wondering at this super potency why none of our family noticed anything miraculous,
Millie from Canuckland.
Did nothing for me. on the oppposite, provides bloating and meteorizm
Will switch to my previous brand. Better your save money.
НУ ничего мне не дал – даже наоборот хуже, газы и метеоризм увеличились.
Обычно хороший пробиотик убирал все это симптомы вроде Натрола.
After the first week, good tummy feeling, more clear skin….
in the 12 years of dealing with IBS and food allergies ( I take zyrtec every day) I have concluded that some probiotics help more than others, some work only with a strict diet that excludes “sensitive” foods and some don’t work at all no matter how you change your diet. for me this worked only if I stay on gluten and dairy free diet. for people without reactions to food it’s probably all they need. though for myself, I rotate between the “therapeutic” strains like Florastor or Reuteri (BioGaia) which allow me to eat greater variety of foods, I have to say that this “Healthy Origins” is an excellent prophylactic probiotic, I recommend it to friends and buy it for my mom.
I’m doing Hydrocolonoscopy twice per year. And my doctor recommended this caps for support normal probiotics state in the my stomach after this procedure.
This works best for me among the twelve brands I have tried. It controls my appetite. I eat much less now. Amazingly it makes my wife, who used to eat very little, eat more. Both of us eat healthy amount of food now. My digestive organs are in premium conditions. The product reduces inflamation in my body. WIth less acnes I look better. Muscle aches are gone. As a result, I walk much faster as I did when I was younger. It seems to affect how my body makes fat. The oil on my face was greatly reduced and my body ordor is gone. My allergy symptoms, skin itchness and sneezing, are greatly reduced.
However, this product has some limitations. It does not help me sleep better as PB8 does. This product does not contain Bifidobacterium Bifidum, which produces neurotransmitter. This product seems to be weak against stomach acid, although the label of the bottle says the opposite. The product works on me well only when I take stomach acid suppressor. A firend of my with strong stomach acid, took 4 capsules a day, still had very littel effects on him.
Because of these limits, I rate 4 stars. But still one of best probiotics on market.
Didn’t work for me.
These are best probiotics in store!!!
It really helped me with candida,..
These probiotics are alive and stomach acid resistant, so they are very, very strong..
Healthy Origins is a great brand that you can trust and they use Danisco’s flora fit probiotic strains in this product which means consistent quality and efficacy.
As for the product: I have found it to calm an unsettled stomach, aid in the digestion of food (less bloating and gas), and improve overall well-being/energy and immunity. I have tried other probiotics and this one is exceptional.
This is a great product at the price that iherbs is selling it. I will continue to buy it from them. I was on anti biotics for 5 weeks. But felt terrible afterwards. Likely cause a fungal and yeast build up in the blood. I took three pills per day. This is above the recommended dose. But with in a week. I felt like a new person. The probiotics actually seem to get rid of the yeast and blood fungus. I was not tested this time but a couple of years ago blood work was done to verrify the yeast and fungus found in the blood after the antibiotics.
My Mom takes one a day along with two Natures Way Triphala and stays “regular.” She is 89 and doesn’t eat a lot of fiber, fruit or vegetables.
keeps me regular…and eliminates cramps caused from candida
During the first week or so of taking this probiotic I had pretty severe vertigo. For the first 3 days it was vertigo and fatigue. After 10 days I felt great. I’m hoping that all this means is that a colony of candida albicans was scooted out of my gut. I have been told that fatigue and vertigo are classic die-off symptoms
Good quality product which improves my digestion, i feel i have more energy and stronger immune system, do not need to take every day if you dont eat crap.Cleans your insides!
This is very easy on the stomach and seems quite effective for preventing lactose intolerance and yeast infections.
Bought this for my dad who developed tummy ache and bloated tummy in his 70s. Symptons reduced significantly, he has never asked me to buy any health products, but for this he asked me to buy whenever he finishes, he is on his 4th bottles! I suffer from yeast infections often, and have been trying many different brands last few years, I have just switched to this brand (finally) and i think it works so far, I have not have one episode since I started!!
this doesn’t help with regularity at all!
I have used different brands of probiotics and it ranks up there as one of the best. I was having trouble with a systematic yeast infection as a result of antibiotics and this, coupled with 3 weeks of anti-fungals got rid of it.
One(or two) a day, re-started my gut immune system after a bad bout with GERD and yeast issues. I switched to this from eating yogurt due to the sugar issues with chronic yeast. Also, yogurt doesn’t necessarily contain the bacterias that your specific immune system is missing.
When I start probiotics I alway order it from the refrigerated section, and without fail, it sends me running to the bathroom the 2nd morning.
With this product, I was skeptical knowing the bottle said that it needs no refrigeration, but wanted to try it based on positive reviews. It does absolutely NOTHING. I even tried it on my 3year old son. Nothing, even thought I gave him a lot for his body weight, over several days.
I’ll be returning this for my money back.
I haven’t had a diverticulitis event since I commenced taking this product.
Very effective and good value too.
I have used other brands of refrigerated acidophilus over the years and decided to try something new. I found this product by Healthy Origins and am VERY PLEASED with the results. As a diabetic I get yeast infections unexpectedly and rather easily. We all need more good bacteria as we age anyway and this one really does the job. I love that it does not need to be refrigerated which makes it easier to travel too! It is working very well for me. Oh, it can also keep parasites away.
I have been suffering with IBS for a long time. Sometimes I couldn’t even get through a whole meal without running to the bathroom. My whole life revolved around “where’s the closest bathroom”. Not a fun life when you live in a rural area and the rest stops are 150 miles apart! I started taking this after watching a show on PBS about probiotics. This product is almost identical to the product on that show, but at half the price! My IBS symptoms are almost completely gone….I’m loving getting my life back !!
have only had these for 3 days but already i am feeling so much better. these are the strongest probiotics ive ever taken. makes me wonder if all my health problems are candida related.
i want to order the larger bottle next time but cant because i will be charged custms tax to uk.
I have been buying this probiotic for about a year. This last shipment came really hot this item does not take heat and it is now ineffective as my IBS has returned. I can no longer call iherb and talk with someone in person. I did send an email and am waiting to hear back. Not happy…

The well-known brands of probiotics are often just too expensive for me. I bought this one because of its potency and reasonable price. I have to say I felt a difference almost immediately in terms of no gas or bloating, though I do take 3 capsules instead of just the one they recommend. I’m convinced from my reading that probiotics are essential to good health, so I do what it takes to keep them on hand. This brand works for me.
Showed several pottles of differing Probiotic’s to my Rheumy Specialist – he studied the labels and told me to stick to this one. I have reordered 3 times now and also like the price too.
helps settle my digestion tract, with less wind!!
Very quickly resolved a long-standing reflux situation. Nice small capsule. Great price.
My partner and I suffer from constant GI problems and they are relieved greatly when we take this daily, and worsen if we don’t for a while. Its great value for money being such a high potency and shelf-stable! Will buy again.
The first probiotic I have found in years that I can actually tolerate. (I have dairy and soy allergies). Excellent value for a top quality product.
I have been suffering for two years of heavy constipation. I changed my way of life and my eating habits but nothing helped. Then I started to take laxatives but soon they stopped working too. This probiotic solved my problem, it really works. I’m so happy to find it.
i used to have digestive issues, like farting after eating, or rumbling, but now i don’t even have these issues anymore. And i love it~!
