Why We Chose It

Garden of Life Once Daily Women’s Probiotics is a well-established brand and contains a dose of 50 billion CFUs with 16 diverse strains. While we were happy to see this formula included 2 of the top-4 strains, L. rhamnosus and L. gasseri, we were disappointed it left out the highly researched and effective strains L. jensenii and L. crispatus.

While Garden of Life Once Daily Women’s has decent diversity of strains, it fell short of being a well-rounded women’s targeted formula by not including any of the key herbs such as Cranberry, D-mannose, or Hibiscus extract for urinary and weight management support.

This product comes in vegetarian capsules, great for health-conscious users. Still, the inclusion of microcrystalline cellulose, a refined wood pulp used as a bulking agent during manufacturing, is not desirable as it may lead to digestive discomfort for some users in the form of bloating, gas, or constipation. We prefer to see products made from ingredients that are minimally processed. A common and growing complaint amongst users is a strong chemical smell emitting from the plastic bottle.

Garden of Life offers a 60-day money-back guarantee, but we would have preferred to see a 90-day guarantee to allow more time for consumers to assess if it is right for them.
