Overall Opinion:

Nature Made Dual Action Probiotic + Energy B12 Adult Gummies gets an overall rating of 2 out of 5 stars.

This probiotic has a few positive notes but I have some issues with it.

Let’s start off with what I like.

First off, it’s a gummy and it tastes fantastic.

Some gummies leave much to be desired but these are nice and chewy and sweet.

It’s not overly sweet and reminds me of a fruit snack.

The flavors are raspberry and cherry.

The directions are easy, just take 2 gummies per day.

It doesn’t specify when to take them so whenever is most convenient for you.

I like that you don’t have to refrigerate it BUT store them at or below 75 degrees.

I live in the sunny state of Arizona and unfortunately my bottle got a little too hot and all my gummies are stuck together.  Such a pain!

Now let’s talk about what I don’t like about this probiotic.

So, I adore the idea of a gummy but I have yet to be impressed with a quality probiotic gummy.

Almost all gummies that I’ve seen only use 1 strain, Bacillus coagulans.

They also usually they have a low CFU count.

This one is better with 4 billion CFU, but still not quite there.

We’d like to see a few more billion CFU.

These gummies just aren’t diverse or potent enough to make a difference.

I honestly didn’t see much or any difference while taking these.

I do like that it includes Vitamin B12, that’s an awesome addition!

However, we’re more focused on digestive health here.

And it really just misses the mark.

It’s not allergy friendly at all and contains wheat, coconut, and gelatin.

Another point is this probiotic is only intended for adults and isn’t safe for kids.

Overall, we like the idea of this probiotic gummy but it just falls flat in our opinion.

The Details:

Ingredients/Strain Profile

Nature Made Dual Action Probiotic + Energy B12 Adult Gummies has 4 billion CFU per serving (2 gummies) and contains just one probiotic strain.

The single strain used is Bacillus coagulans (IS-2).

Some studies suggest that this strain may help alleviate common digestive problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), and prevent respiratory infections.

It may help prevent diarrhea, including traveler’s diarrhea and diarrhea caused by antibiotics.

This strain is commonly used in probiotic gummies and I’m personally not a fan of it.

It’s been suggested to create spores in the body.

This could lead to uncomfortable side effects like belly pain, bloating, diarrhea, and gas.

This formula also includes 1,000 mcg of Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin), which accounts for 41,667% of your daily value.

Vitamin B12 is used to help support cellular energy production.

Allergy Concerns

Nature Made Dual Action Probiotic + Energy B12 Adult Gummies definite has allergy concerns.

It contains wheat, gelatin, and coconut.

Wheat is from wheat starch and coconut is from coconut oil.

So, it’s not gluten free and it’s also not vegetarian or vegan.

Please be aware of these ingredients if you’re allergic or sensitive.

Other than that, it doesn’t list anything else.

I prefer when the company states explicitly what’s in the supplement and what’s not.

The other ingredients in the formula include:  Glucose Syrup, Sugar, Pineapple Juice Concentrate, Wheat Starch, Gelatin, Invert Sugar, Propylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Colors Added (Including Carmine), Natural Flavors, Coconut Oil, White Beeswax, Carnauba Wax.


If you buy from Amazon, a bottle of 50 gummies costs $19.37 and lasts you 25 days.

The daily serving is 2 gummies and ends up being $0.77 per day.

That’s right around average for a probiotic supplement.

I think it’s a good value for the price because it’s a gummy (normally those cost a little extra for taste and convenience).

It also has the added B12, which is an added perk.

Side Effects

I noticed some minor bloating and belly pain while taking this probiotic.

I seem to have a tendency to experience side effects with probiotic gummies.

I think it’s because gummies normally use the strain Bacillus coagulans and use some common allergens such as wheat.

This strain is known to cause some side effects.

I didn’t feel horrible but I could definitely notice the effects for a little while.

Make sure you don’t take more than 2 gummies per day, as this may exacerbate the symptoms.


I’m super pleased to see a money back guarantee for Nature Made products.

Usually companies that sell their products through a 3rd party and not directly from their site don’t seem to offer any guarantees.

Luckily, this company is different!

If you go to the Nature Made website, go to the very bottom of the site where it says “Resources”.

In that column, you’ll see where it says “Money Back Guarantee”.

Click that link and it’ll ask you for the product type and specific product.

Then choose why you’d like to return the product from 3 preset answers.

For this product in particular, you get an entire refund of your purchase (excluding taxes and shipping costs) up to $24.99.

They also give you 100 days from purchase to return the product.

I’m happy to see a guarantee for us customers!
