iherb review |MegaFood, MegaFlora, 90 Capsules (Ice)
Apr 2017Expiration Date
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.

In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package.

Customer reviews about the product:
I destroyed my intestinal flora with too much sugar and needed these to reestablish a healthy environment. Of course, I also virtually cut out sugar for awhile. After 2 or 3 weeks, I’m fine again. The capsules arrived the next day in an ice pack, as ordered. They smelled fresh, unlike the same brand I bought in a health food store.
This item was NOT shipped to me with an ice pack!!! It arrived very WARM and it’s supposed to be refrigerated as stated on Iherb’s website!!!! When I told customer service about it, someone named “Mervin”, tried to tell me it was not a refrigerated item and sent me a link to Now Foods! THIS PROBIOTIC IS MADE BY MEGAFOOD!!!! Talk about stupid!!!
I was told this product shipped with an ice pack. It does not and arrived warm. Please add that as an option. Until then I will look elsewhere.
Excellent product that is helping to rebuild my immune system following high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant.
We love MegaFlora! We have been on prescription medication in the past due to colon issues, and now with MegaFlora that medication is no longer necessary. It even helped the puppy when he got an upset tummy! We will continue to buy MegaFlora routinely.
I don’t understand why more stores don’t carry this item! It’s the ONLY thing that handles my IBS!!!!
i like these. next day shipped and the bottle wasn’t cold. iherb needs to find a better strategy when shipping perishables. next time i will buy these at the local health market
I suffer from IBS and have found probiotics a great solution. I still take some of the prescribed medication but have been able to cut that down by 50 – 75% with the addition of Mega Flora once a day. And I feel so much better!
I found out about Megafood because I started taking the Megazymes, fell in love with them, and wanted a probiotic from the same line. I love that this probiotic is non-dairy, a huge bonus for me. I keep it frozen, but you can keep it refrigerated. I got it next day from iherb. It was not sent with an ice pack and it was not cold on arrival. However, I found elsewhere that the company states it can last up to two weeks if not exposed to extreme temperatures. Granted that it is summer here in North Carolina (super hot), I do not feel that the integrity of the product was compromised in the short time that it was not refrigerated. Would I prefer an ice pack? Sure, especially during the summer. Despite that, I do believe that it has been working quite well and I feel good.
Live bacteria as opposed to other brands purchased elsewhere. Tested and confirmed.
This works really well for me. Good for anyone with diary sensitivities.
We are pleased with this product – it has been working well for us. The only bad part is that it needs to be refrigerated and taken on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before eating. This means a trip to the kitchen first thing in the morning, so you have 30 minutes before breakfast.
My wife and I have been taking this ProBiotic for about one year. We have had excellent results with this product; good reports from our Naturopathic Dr.
I switched to this from iFlora afetr they added fos but Megaflora doesn’t give me noticeable results. I am next going to try Ultra Jaro-dophilous or PB8.
I have had fewer lower tract upsets since adding this to my diet, not sure if daily use is over kill but it works for me.
These are great probiotics, I couldn’t find anything else with such a high culture count. I would definitely recommend them. My only issue is that they arrived warm, despite the ice pake. I’m not sure if this destroyed any of the live cultures.
After knee-replacement in ’06, my husband had difficulties w. regularity and tried several doctor recommended remedies without avail. After starting Maga Flora in February he is back to normal.
Ordered based upon a review read on another brand but happy to switch (as seems to be needed periodically). Excellent delivery from iHerb, as always.
I have used several internet websites for my vits and mins, but iHerb is the only site that I’ve found that refrigerates probiotics while they sit in the warehouse and then ships them with ice.
Great formula – I love Mega Foods
I see a difference in overall digestion and ease of elimination
I take one each morning and have noticed a positive impact. Especially great to take during any courses of antibiotics.
great whole food probiotic
Great probiotic, natural and lots of good bacteria!
This is the best of all.
I rotate in several probiotics and this is a great one. You only want to take something that’s built on whole foods.
Stomach. It is been working great.
Continuing on an anti-candida protocol of wheat and sugar free foods I ramped up my Mom’s probiotics and she is taking this 2x a day now with breakfast and dinner. Seems to be helping her gut issues and bowel movement. Very pleased with this product. She used to take NOW 8 Billion. And, although, she thought that was helping her then, there is no comparison of how much better she is doing.
I like the fact it has so many probiotic strains. It seems to have helped clear up my female problem.
A little expensive, but great quality!
