A reliable probiotic
I decided to take my doctor's advice and take a probiotic to assist in my recovery from a bad flu 5 years ago. Since then I take it every flu season to assist with my overall health and giving my body optimal fighting power against the yearly bugs out there.

Possible catalyst for Labrynthitis attack - complete hearing and balance loss
While the Inner Health Plus is by nature a useful product, I would advise that it not be taken if you have reflux.
I have had bad esophageal reflux for months after taking some Catapress medication. In an attempt to rectify what I believed to be a stomach imbalance, I started to take Inner Health Plus on a Thursday. On Friday while driving I was overcome with spatial imbalance. Late Saturday I crawled to the shower and vomited uncontrollably because I could not walk without falling over. After much medical intervention, it was diagnosed that I...had Vertigo caused by a Labrynthitis inflammation of the inner ear. It is medically known that gut bacteria and viruses can migrate via the oesaphagus and Eustacion tubes to the middle/inner ear. The possibility of coincidence in my case is not likely. My potential for exposure to external bacteria or viruses is very small because of diet and environment. If you take a Probiotic (any brand) and have a subsequent Vertigo attack, you have only 48 hours to start antibiotics and Prednisolone, or risk losing you hearing for life. You have to stop all probiotics immediately. For some people Lactobacillus probiotics can actually overdose your good gut bacteria causing a toxic state. Saccharmyces porbiotics may be a safer option....maybe. I have only given Inner Health Plus one star, not because of its intended efficacy, but because of a possible low likelihood life damaging side effect.
- Long term physical illness
They work for me.
I have been suffering with stomach sensations for over a year, I say sensations because I can't describe it as a pain, what I have been experiencing feels like something is trying to get out of my stomach, moving, it's very uncomfortable.
The Doctor prescribed ranitidine, this only helped for short period's.
I decided it was time to take matters into my own hand's and look for an alternative as ranitidine and zantac were only temporary fixes.
I have only been taking inner health plus for 8 day's, the first 4 day's I didn't notice any difference...
A dangerous product if taken with prednisone
A couple of tablets taken over two days produced the most appalling pain I have ever felt, mainly from lower back upwards to neck. It was suggested that the product would be helpful coming off, gradually, towards the end of course prednisone. My wife could not believe that every attempted movement caused acute pain so severe that I could not help but cry out. Lying in bed, on back, flat WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST movement got me through the night and avoided the ambulance my wife wanted to call. The product had no literature or warning signs even th...ough I now believe probiotics and prednisone work in opposite NOT complimentary directions. Be very careful. Sending an email to Ethical Nutrients was also a drama - about 10 pages or so trying to prove I was not a robot. How time consuming and absurd.

Might actually work!
My daughter aged 13 recently required dual big gun antibiotics for an infection. Being very concerned she would develop antibiotic associated diarrhoea, we used this product daily. NO DIARRHOEA!
With this study with sample size of one I cannot say the product was helpful but I can say I was very impressed she dodged diarrhoea and I would definitely use this product again in this context. It is my personal view this product does have a benefit in this clinical scenario.
I am usually sceptical but these really worked
I had been experiencing awful, frequent and painful bloating for about a 2 1/2 year period, which seemed to coincide with menopause. I also had quite a yucky taste in my mouth, but didn’t think those symptoms were related. I tried a number of remedies for the bloating, recommended by my GP, but had no improvement. A pharmacist suggested Inner Health Plus which I tried despite scepticism that it would be just another expensive failure. Within a few days my bloating noticeably improved. A week later I missed a couple of days because I went away w...ithout the bottle, and the bloating came back. The bloating stopped again when I resumed taking Inner Health Plus and I have barely had a single episode of bloating in about three months. This is such a huge relief! The nasty taste in my mouth seems to be gone as well, so that has been an unexpected bonus. It is great to be able to say with confidence that this has absolutely worked for me.
Bring the 12 billion bacteria daily immune back
I have been taking inner health daily immune 12 billion bacteria for the past 6 months, and haven't been sick once. It has now been taken off the market, and a new daily immune of 1 billion bacteria is on the market, Since taking these, I have been constipated for the past two weeks. I got the on the Go, for the gut, I've been taking this also with the daily immune and I'm still constipated.
Helps Build Up Immunity
After enduring 2 bouts of the flu this year as well as 2 courses of antibiotics, I decided to give Ethical Nutrients Inner Health Plus on the go a try. Within 5 days I began to feel heaps better & a fortnight later I feel great! I haven't felt as well as I do now in a very long time. Taken in conjunction with Super Multi Plus multivitamin & 1 x 1000mg Extra C Zingles chewable vitamin c daily, I found this combination to be the best ever remedy to get over the flu fast.
Inner Health Plus will also make you regular & increase your energy leve...ls so you won't feel as tired or fatigued. If you are lactose intolerant, it's still ok to take as it doesn't contain lactose. I also like the fact that the On The Go version doesn't require refrigeration, so you can take it anywhere, anytime. The Super Multi Plus is an excellent multi & it increases your energy levels too as well as providing your body with any vitamins or minerals it may be deficient in. Chewable C-Zingles are a great all-rounder for increasing immunity & also ideal for skin, hair & nail health. Vitamin C is also good for assisting bruises & scars to heal faster. Thank you Ethical Nutrients for your fabulous health supplement range which can easily be found in most pharmacies & chemists Australia-wide. If I hadn't made the decision to purchase when I did, I think I'd be still sick in bed & at this point in time I can't afford to be sick!
Taking Inner Health Plus probiotics resulted in piercing stomach pains
I took this probiotic without any other medications or supplements for 5 days and by day 2 I had horrible stomach pains. I tried to wait it out, but the last night before I stopped taking it I could hardly sleep because the piercing pains were so bad that they kept waking me up in the middle of the night. It has taken over 48 hours for my stomach to go back to semi-normal after stopping Inner Health Plus - I still am experiencing a gnawing sensation and struggling to eat. Ethical Nutrients should have better labelling explaining possible side e...ffects. They should also take responsibility in educating retailers on the possible side effects and recommended dosage (those who haven't taken probiotics before may need smaller dosage). After doing a bit of research, I came across some information from other probiotic organisations that probiotics can possibly cause stomach upsets, but that could be a good sign of the bad bacteria dying - it is hard to believe that the piercing pains I experienced could actually be good for my body. And now I've spent $30 on something I cannot use, nor would give to someone else to finish using. I do not recommend this product.
Didn't expect much, very surprised
I normally am a bit skeptical about supplements, vitamins, etc. But after a stubborn cold that kept returning over the period of a year, friends suggested the problem could be my digestive system. I tried Inner Health Plus and a Vitamin D pill, and behold: the colds are gone. This is definitely no placebo effect, I had no expectations whatsoever. Very pleased.
The best I've felt in years
I started taking Ethical Nutrients Inner Health Plus about 3 weeks ago for gut health. I'm 24 years old and have suffered from irregular bowel movements and bloating basically my whole life despite not having any food allergies and eating a healthy, balanced diet. About a week into taking one of these supplements every day I was blown away by the results. My regularity has been restored and my nails are the longest and strongest they have ever been. My hair is also incredibly shiny and growing faster than usual. I had no idea that probiotics co...uld lead to improved nail and hair health as well. I definitely recommend these supplements for anyone looking to boost their immune system. You don't need to have gut problems to take these, they should be part of your every day routine in my opinion, regardless of health issues.
Exhumed from the (near) Dead
Normally owning (and even flaunting) an incredible immune system, for at least 6 months during 2016 I developed a pseudo cold that seemed to never go away (without really having any full blown symptoms), had a very minor feeling of fever, fatigue, minor phlegm in the throat, (non stop), but worst of all an ever increasing (getting worse) and baffling dry cough that would come on after eating.
Trying everything known to humankind, or so I thought, (including salt rooms, chest x-rays and antacid prescriptions that broke me out in rashes)... a ...work colleague asked whether (since part of the issue seemed to be digestive) I had tried probiotics? I hadn't so I went out to the local health store and a very friendly young woman suggested this product from Inner Health Plus, plus another called 'Intestamine'. I also purchased 'Yakult' and yoghurt and started my therapy and within 24-48 hours felt completely, totally, completely and utterly cured. It was simply amazing after 6 months of getting nowhere. I'm going to keep using it and bought another bottle today as I just ran out. No doubt, somehow, some way, the bad bacteria in my gut had taken hold and multiplied over the last year, perhaps due to stress, diet or other factors and what I had been experiencing was a gradual disintegration of my immune system. Every body is unique and different and all of us have our own issues, but if you're scratching around for something to try, I would recommend probiotics easily as a first step and see how you go. All the best!
This product has changed my life
I'm 34 and have ulceritic collitis and proctitis and have had general trouble with a sluggish bowel, irregular bowel movements and an inflamed, enlarged stomach for about the last decade. In one week of taking these capsules every day - I have regular, large bowel movements and my stomach has settled and flattened. It literally feels like a miracle. I am NOT in any way saying this is a cure for collitis, or will solve any problem in particular - I am just sharing my experience as I am so motivated to review this product (I've never reviewed anything online) that its aided my bowel function, I feel kilos lighter and emotionally stronger. I really hope this has a lasting effect. I am so grateful for this product.
