Why We Chose It

Happy V Women’s Daily Prebiotic + Probiotic has gained popularity through the company’s use of heavy online advertising. We liked that this formula contains three of the top-4 strains L. rhamnosus, L. gasseri, and L. crispatus but were disappointed to see if missing the highly researched and effective strain L jensenii. However, the biggest challenge with this formula is it only includes 7 strains, we prefer to see a larger diversity of at least 16 strains, and the relatively low potency at 20 Billion CFUs. We prefer to see formulas that have at least 45 Billion CFUs per dose.

This brand includes Biotin at 15 mcg which we presume was intended to help with metabolism, but the dosage needed for this benefit is 30 mcg, which is twice the amount included in this formula. We would have preferred to see herbal ingredients included that have more focused benefits for women’s digestive and vaginal health as seen with the top-rated brand on our list. Interestingly, Happy V does sell a separate product, “D-Mannose + Cranberry,” but you would have to pay an additional $40 for that product. That would bring your total monthly cost to $80 and require you to take 4 pills per day.

In analyzing this brand, we found places on both their brand site and Amazon listing page that indicate that this product contains digestive enzymes in the form of, “Digezyme (Amylase, Protease, Cellulase, Lactase, Lipase – 50mg.” Their brand product page in the “Quality Transparency” has a link to a Certificate of Analysis which clearly shows the digestive enzymes in the formula. Their Amazon listing under ingredients also indicates “Transparency Compliant Label” and lists the digestive enzymes. However, their product labels do not mention any digestive enzymes whatsoever. It is challenging to believe the brand is focused on transparency when they are misrepresenting what is in their formula. Happy V backs their product with a minimal 30-day refund period, which only applies to unopened bottles. This formula uses a vegetarian capsule and is non-GMO.
