Suggested use: 2 capsules daily or as directed by your health professional. (Children under age 6: 1 capsule daily.) For best results, take 1 capsule with water twice a day on an empty stomach. If benefits are desired in the stomach (e.g. heartburn or an unsettling meal) the capsules may be chewed. Temporary reactions such as minor bloating or a mild laxative or constipating effect are signs that the bacteria are remodeling, detoxifying and improving the gut environment.

These are probably the best probiotics I've used, ever. I take two a day, bite in to one, and swallow the other whole. There's never any sour stomach feeling, and my digestion has been rock solid for many months now.
