About Keybiotics

This is one of the flagship products for Whole Body Research, a supplement vendor which appeared shortly after a popular Dr. Oz segment on garcinia cambogia aired in late 2012. Whole Body Research launched an official website for Keybiotics in early 2013, when keybiotics.com was registered.

See our full Whole Body Research review here.

The official description of the product reads:

Keybiotics are super-probiotic supplements containing 37.5 billion colony forming units of friendly bacteria from 14 unique strains of beneficial bacteria, making it the most powerful probiotic on the market today. Keybiotics are specially engineered to withstand stomach acids and bile, allowing them cover the entire G.I. Tract and balance out Candida and other types of yeast overgrowth quickly and efficiently.

Keybiotics are lactose and gluten free.

The strains included in Keybiotics include:

  • Lactobacillus Acidophilus
  • Bifidobacterium Lactis
  • Lactobacillus Plantarum
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
  • Lactobacillus Casei
  • Lactobacillus Salivarius
  • Lactobacillus Bulgaricus
  • Bifidobacterium Breve
  • Lactobacillus Paracasei
  • Lactococcus Lactis
  • Streptococcus Thermophilus
  • Lactobacillus Brevis
  • Bifidobacterium Bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium Longum

Are your probiotics alive?

ConsumerLab.com points out that “Many probiotic bacteria are sensitive to heat and moisture. Heat can kill organisms and moisture can activate them within pills, only to die due to lack of nutrients and a proper environment. These products should ideally be refrigerated.”

The Keybiotics label instructs you to “Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid excessive heat.” Whole Body Research does not, however, indicate where their inventory is stored, which – one would hope – meets their criteria on the packaging.

How much does Keybiotics cost?

1 bottle, 30 day supply, is $39.95
2 bottles, 60 day supply, is $69.95
3 bottles, 90 day supply, is $94.95

Whole Body Research

In our original review of Whole Body Research, we noted that there are a plethora of fake reviews flooding the internet. Indeed, not only are there countless fake “review” websites, but we have been inundated with waves of mostly-fake reviews for the website. As you read reviews for this product – and Whole Body Research in general – you may want to take such glowing reviews with a grain of salt.

Benefits of Probiotics

The Harvard Medical School issued the following words of advice regarding the supplementation of probiotics:

Probiotics are generally considered safe — they’re already present in a normal digestive system — although there’s a theoretical risk for people with impaired immune function. Be sure the ingredients are clearly marked on the label and familiar to you or your health provider. There’s no way to judge the safety of unidentified mixtures.

In the United States, most probiotics are sold as dietary supplements, which do not undergo the testing and approval process that drugs do. Manufacturers are responsible for making sure they’re safe before they’re marketed and that any claims made on the label are true. But there’s no guarantee that the types of bacteria listed on a label are effective for the condition you’re taking them for. Health benefits are strain-specific, and not all strains are necessarily useful, so you may want to consult a practitioner familiar with probiotics to discuss your options. As always, let your primary care provider know what you’re doing.

Our Keybiotics Review

One of our writers obtained a bottle of Keybiotics from Whole Body Research and took it for a month. He did not report any noticeable negative effect, and stated that the supplement performed on par with other probiotics he had used in the past for a variety of conditions.

At the time that we ordered the product, Whole Body Research offered a “Digestive Health Club Membership” which was an auto-ship program. This program has since disappeared, and Whole Body Research now states in their FAQ “Whole Body Research never does any form of auto-billing or order shipping – what you see is what you get.” We can assume that this change in policy arose from a chorus of overwhelmingly negative reports about their billing process, customer service, and difficulties in canceling this auto-ship program.

Below you can see the page with the Whole Body Research “Digestive Health Club Membership,” which has since been removed from the site:

Bottom Line

Keybiotics is a relatively high-priced probiotic, although our tester reported that he felt the product did work. When in the market for a probiotic, it will probably pay to shop around. Hundreds of probiotics are on the market, many of them much less costly than Keybiotics.
