    This breakdown of why cheap probiotics are cheap and why they don’t work is an eye-opener. Makes me think twice about just going for the cheapest option on the shelf. By the way, has anyone here tried Bioma already?

    I never thought that some probiotics could actually cause weight gain. I will definitely be more careful about the supplements I choose. Also, I have just checked that there’s a discount for Bioma and the price is really not that high!

    It’s funny that I stumbled on this article since I have used Bioma for a month now. Can double down on everything this doctor said about it. Definitely worth the money.
