    Hey

    Im thinking of ordering “Megaflora” from “iherb”. But on the webpage they dont recommend shiping this to countries outside USA. The resone is that they can not send the packeddge “ice insulated. And therfor this will compremise the supplemnt.

    Im from norway btw.

    Have looked a littel around to see if I can find a differnt webshop who has a solution. But no luck yet. Any tips on this would be much appricated 😉

    The shops that sell “probiotics” in my local shops have probiotics but they dont contain more than 6 billion. And they dont have “Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1”.

    Hello, Johnny.

    This store is located in the UK, and they sell MegaFlora. They state that they will ship all over the world. I can tell you that their prices for MegaFlora are high, so if you’d rather find a less pricey one, let me know and I’ll see what I can find.

    This is a link where you can email them; ask if they pack probiotics in ice packs and if they will ship to Norway.

    Nice, thanks 🙂

    Y kinda sucks that it cost so much more. But if the shipping destroys the probiotics, whats the point of ordering it.

    Always nice with a cheaper one 🙂

    Check out google shopping for places that sell it and ship it to norway.

    It costs about $20 extra US to ship the package with refrigeration which will prevent the probiotic from being destroyed by shipping. If you ship it without refrigeration, the probiotic should still be rather intact as long as it is shipped quickly. Probiotics can survive up to a week without refrigeration.

    If you don’t want to fork up the cash to pay for a good probiotic, you could simply just eat a bunch of (homemade) kefir or greek yogurt. This also contains probiotic.

    Did not know about google shopping, nice tool. Thank you 😉

    Gladly to pay the 20 dollars to get a complet supplement. But I think I can get the supplent to me in under 5 days. But on iherbs web page they do not recommend sending it to country outside usa. Can u give me any links to information about how long probiotics last outside refrigated state. Whant to make sure im taking a good probiotic 🙂

    Im making my own yougerth and got my kefir grains yesterday. The yougerth tast awsome and with stevia it is superb. Looking forward to the kefir milk is done. The storebought tasted really good, but worried that it has to much sugar in it.

    Yesterday I got my probiotics and decided to try and test if it was still active. I used this test metode: http://kblog.lunchboxbun…pplement-active-at.html

    When I poored the contents out in the sink I could see a differnce.
    The glass with milk and the two probiotic capsel in it: Had coagulated at the bottom of the glass and gone soure.

    Glass with just milk: Nothing had changed.

    Waited about 8 ours before i checked.
