Comparing 3 High Quality Vegan Probiotics Brands: Ultimate Pro SBO’s, Friendly Force, and MegaFlora

We have received many inquiries into when the Ultimate Pro SBO’s Probiotics 90 (vcaps) will return. The short answer is, nobody knows. The company that makes Pro SBOs is not manufacturing the product at this time and it is not known when they will restart. It may be some time before this product returns to the marketplace.
The Ultimate Pro SBO’s are very popular because of their low price point and very high quality.  Ultimate ProSBO’s are 100% raw, vegan, food and soil based friendly bacteria. There are 49 strains of friendly bacteria in Ultimate ProSBO’s. One plastic bottle of 90 vcaps retails for $24.95. The cost per capsule for Pro SBOs is 28 cents each. Serving size is 1 capsule and suggested use is 1 capsule per meal.
Today I want to introduce two other brands of high quality probiotics that I recommend: Healthforce Friendly Force Probiotics (80 g powder and 120 vcaps) and MegaFood MegaFlora Probiotics (60 and 90 vcaps).


First up is the Healthforce Friendly Force Probiotics. These come in glass bottles priced at $39.95 for both the 80 g and the 120 vcaps. Friendly Force are 100% raw, vegan, and dairy and gluten free. It has 100 billion + active cultures and has 6 strains of friendly bacteria. The per capsule cost of the Friendly Force is 33 cents each. Serving size is 4 capsules, notice the very high potency, and suggested use is about 1 capsule per meal or 4 capsules per day.
Next up is the MegaFood MegaFlora Probiotics. These retail for $46.80 for the 90 vcaps and $34.80 for the 60 vcaps. The better price is with the 90 vcaps which is 52 cents per capsule. This brand costs the most of the three. MegaFlora is 100% raw and vegan. They are dairy, gluten, herbicide, pesticide, and soy free. MegaFLora offer 14 strains of friendly bacteria and the potency is 20 billion active cultures. Serving size is 1 capsule and suggested use is 1 capsule per meal.
So, I think it can be gleamed from this analysis that all three brands are very good, high quality, vegan probiotics. However, each offers somewhat different benefits. The Pro SBO’s offers the largest number of strains of friendly bacteria at an impressive 49. However, the manufacturer does not offer a potency number, most likely since they don’t require refrigeration for their product. Both the Friendly Force and MegaFlora offer a similar potency of 100 billion + for 4 capsules of Friendly Force and 20 billion for the MegaFlora. Friendly Force has only 6 strains of friendly bacteria while the MegaFlora has 14 strains. Since I have personally found that the Healthforce Friendly Force to be a very good probiotic.  I personally have been using the Friendly  Force because of its lower cost. However, if more strains are important for you, then MegaFlora is the way to go. 

When one thinks about how probiotics are hugely beneficial and really a required supplement to take daily with meals, the cost factor is not much of a concern. I think the important thing is to give one's body high quality probiotics and digestive enzymes on a regular daily schedule! Both enzymes and probiotics will improve the body’s digestive system, as well as improving the immune system and the body’s overall health. Both are the foundation, and indispensable in today’s world of processed foods and high stress!

Hi!
I agree with you that enzymes and probiotics can greatly benefit health.
I contacted MegaFood about whether or not MegaFlora was vegan, and they responded that "While there is none present in the final product, dairy is used in the manufacture of our probiotics, and for that reason, they are not considered vegan."
Some other probiotics claiming to be "vegan" contain human strain bacteria, which I've heard come from human waste products. Although you could argue that no animals were harmed in this way, I wouldn't take such a thing. Other probiotics claiming to be vegan don't know what the original source of the probiotic starter is.
Friendly Force, on the other hand, seems to be a good option. (I've contacted them about their product.) Or you could just eat sauerkraut!
