Manufactured by Whole Body Research and based out of Los Angeles, CA, Whole Body Keybiotics is a nutritional supplement that claims to help your body maintain balanced bacteria levels. As a result, you can experience relief from IBS, constipation, and bloating, while improving your energy and boosting your mental processes.
Whole Body Research is a fairly new company, and as a result does not hold any rating with the Better Business Bureau. However, they do have five closed complaints within the past three years, most of which appear to revolve around problems with the product and/or service. In addition, there are no online reviews regarding the Whole Body Keybiotics specifically, though the most common complaints associated with probiotics in general are bad breath, experiencing no results, and cost.
What are Keybiotics?
Keybiotics is a branded blend of probiotics, which are nutritional supplements that include beneficial microorganisms (called “flora”) such as bacteria and yeast inside. These bacteria are often found in your digestive tract—which can be home to more than 500 different types—and which play an integral role in keeping you healthy.
Under optimal conditions, your body will generally maintain a balanced level of bacteria in your gut. However, this balance can be affected through the use of antibiotics, which kill both good and bad bacteria. Ultimately, this can lead to diarrhea, urinary tract infections, and more.
The Benefits of Keybiotics
By repopulating and maintaining healthy bacteria levels within your gut, common claimed benefits for keybiotics include improved digestion (intestinal function), boosted immune system, a reduction in common allergies, improved mental function, weight loss assistance, and more. However, you should keep in mind that there remains insufficient clinical evidence to fully support all claimed benefits.
Keybiotics Side Effects
Probiotics in general, and keybiotics specifically, are typically safe to use for most individuals, and come with few side effects. However, when side effects do occur they tend to be digestive in nature, including gas, bloating, cramps, and even bad breath.
As with any nutritional supplement, be sure to speak with your physician prior to beginning keybiotics.
How Keybiotics Work
By using unique strains of the most beneficial bacteria, Whole Body Keybiotics is claimed to help provide a wide range of benefits, including increased energy, smoother digestion, and even weight loss assistance. According to the company’s website, Whole Body Keybiotics is different from other probiotics products on the market in that it contains the “largest concentration of CFUs” currently available, and is especially effective against the buildup of many types of yeast, including Candida. These 14 bacteria strains include: Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Lactis, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Salivarius, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Bifidobacterium Breve, Lactobacillus Paracasei, Lactococcus Lactis, Streptococcus Thermoplilus, Lactobacillus Brevis, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, and Bifidobacterium Longum.
Whole Body Research claims that one 500mg Keybiotics capsule should be taken once per day with food. The supplement can be taken by most individuals 12 years of age and older, and generates no known major side effects or allergic reactions. However, regarding probiotics as a whole, most users complain of bad breath, experiencing no results, and cost. With this in mind, Whole Body Keybiotics is claimed to be the only probiotic on the market that will not give you bad breath.
While many users will experience some benefits after taking the first dose, it will generally take 1-4 weeks for the Whole Body Keybiotics to “fully balance out your system.” All Whole Body Research products are GMP-certified and FDA registered, and their Keybiotics are made from 100% pure, natural ingredients, and are always free of synthetic fillers, gluten, and lactose.

Keybiotic's is AWESOME!!!
I was really skeptical when I watched the video. I called the company many times speaking to customer service to ask questions and this was back in December of 2013. I received this product a week ago and started them last Thursday-5 days ago exactly and I tell you this product is HIGHLY effective! I got really sick when I first started them for the first 3 days, but this morning, I had SO much energy I didn't know what to do with myself! My digestion is like it was before I started having children, my energy level is through the roof like when I was back in High School, I don't feel groggy, my mind is clear--I just feel brand new!!!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! If you are skeptical like me, don't wait as long as I did-3 months! Buy the product, you will not be disappointed. I am a homeschooling mom, with lots of other activities going on and this has been an answer to my prayers! This stuff is AWESOME!!! Thank you SO much for this product! I am really happy! ***On another note-I normally never write reviews EVER, but this one definitely deserved a written review! Mahalo Nui!!!
I have suffered from IBS since 1995. Medicines helped but symptoms returned after the medication wore off. After taking Keybiotics for 7-8 days I realized I was no longer waking up feeling sick and nauseous. Instead of taking pills 5-6 days a week I now only have to take them 1-2 days a week. I can't tell you how great it is not to feel sick every morning. I will continue to take Keybiotics for this reason alone. I am sure I am realizing other health benefits as well.
I ordered keybiotics from Whole Body Research and also opted to join the automatic renewal plan which meant that every 30 days an automatic payment of $34.95 was deducted from my checking account and a 30 day supply was sent to me. I was happy with both the product and the customer service and then, due to being laid off from my job, I felt like this was one bill that I was going to have to eliminate. I notified Whole Body Research to cancel my automatic deduction (notified them on the day before the next deduction was to take affect), and immediately the deduction was cancelled.
I was worried about cancelling because you hear so many horror stories about not being able to cancel automatic deductions from so many on-line companies, but I was very pleased with the way this company treated me and how quickly they responded. I have no problem trusting them to renew my business once I am in a better financial situation.
Tried to call customer service before ordering the auto ship program to see how easy it would be to cancel. Once they learned I wanted to cancel she could no longer here me (funny how that worked) and hung up. This happened five times. even call from a land line, but it was the same girl. Will not be ordering from them.
My symptoms were pointing towards IBS per GI doc. After second day of Keybiotics my bowel went from 5 days to once a day,more regular. Stomach cramps, bloating and fatigue is gone and I don't hear my stomach growling anymore! (embarrassing) I truly believe that being informed by the video and wanted best results for our health, one must try it for at least 30 days to really feel the effectiveness of it. Keep in mind every body is different and reacts differently. Now I eat fresh organics ONLY food, and fruits are the only sweets that I consume. Since I can't afford insurance and don't trust the conventional docs I need to seriously take over my health the best possible way. At least I can afford Keybiotics and organically home grown food. What a blessings in disguise!
I tried to call them with a question about my order, and I was on the phone for 45 minutes on hold. After this amount of time, I figured I should cancel my order already, which was a huge hassle once I was talking to somebody, being as they tried to sell me other things.
Please do not support this company, take my advice.
I only wish I had discovered probiotics sooner. I had so many bowel issues all my life. Mostly constipation. Always thinking I needed more fiber and always trying to eat more roughage with barely any results. I discovered the video by accident and it all made sense to me. And what a great video by the way. It did not take long for my body to respond. I did go through a yeast "die off" and felt horrible for maybe three days and then I just felt better and better.
My bowel movements are so normal and healthy now, and I feel sooooo good. More energy. Also I had toenail fungus on one toe for years and it has been killed by the probiotics. I am so amazed. Also I had to limit dairy because I will get mucus in my throat. Well this has cleared up any lactose issues I had. I am enjoying cream in my ice coffee again.
I got my husband on the probiotics also and his "old man" smell is gone. Thank you God. I never expected it to perform a miracle like that. I will never stop taking these ever.
My husband has had serious issues with fungus and yeast overgrowth for years. Everything we try works temporarily and then it's back again. He had to be on antibiotics for an infected tooth. I knew this was going to be an issue and sure enough.
This time he got horrible scalp issues that nothing has touched. My Mom was a Nurse and preached about fungus for the past 20 years so when we saw the video (great but long) we knew it was everything we believed in anyway. He ordered it, and we've only been on it a few days and his scalp is so much better. I have great energy and wake up feeling great.
Dr. Oz did a segment about probiotics and is featured in an article in "First" magazine in the March issue. It was a good article. So far, I'm really happy with the product.
I took one pill and the next day I woke up at 4:45a.m. with all kinds of energy! I thought I wanted to go back to sleep when I first woke up but quickly realized I was way too awake to remotely go back to sleep, so I got up and went outside. I swept the snow off my car and shoveled the driveway. then I did the morning routine with my kids to get them off to school. Went to my boyfriends place and shoveled his driveway, his mom's driveway and filled his mom's woodboxes!
This is alot of snowshoveling! My drive is short but both of the other ones are really long! While I was doing all this I kept feeling amazed at how good I felt, and how much energy I had. I haven't felt this good in a long time. I'm usually tired every day and ready for a nap by nine or ten o'clock, but a nap was far from my mind yesterday even after working quite hard for about 3 hours. I didn't feel tired till nine at night after getting up at 4:45 a.m. and being very busy all day! I love this stuff and am telling everyone about it!
When I started the probiotics a worm came out in my stool. It was long and fat. I was shocked and scared when I saw it. I thinked I picked it up on a trip to the caribbean. I am wondering if there are more or this was a lone one. Def buy a fungus and parasite killer with the product.
I have used probiotics before but never with such a rapid and positive response. Within 2 days I felt a difference and within a week, all signs of candida overgrowth were gone! Amazing result. I have felt bloated for years and I feel normal for the first time in decades!
Be very careful with this company!!!
As soon as you purchase these from their website, they will try to sell you 3 OTHER products not even mentioned by the company anywhere on the site. These include "Fungus killer" and something called colon cleanse. They are expensive, and claim that you cannot kill candida without them. This company seems like a huge scam, and they care more about profit than their customers.
Zero results - bad or good
I saw the video (which is WAY too long - almost counterproductive) and, based upon supposed results, purchased 6 bottles. Three for my daughter and three for myself. My daughter has had abdominal problems for over two years now. Doctors can't figure out what is wrong with her. Every test comes back negative. And she has been put on countless antibiotics. Fortunately, her abdominal pains began to go away last fall. Still though I thought that maybe her system was out of whack due to the effects of the antibiotics. So she tried a bottle of Keybiotics. And, after 30 days, she has not noticed any change in her health etc., one way or the other. She did though give me back the other two bottles since she doesn't want to bother taking something "that doesn't work".
As for me, I also just finished 30 days of Keybiotics. As for the results .... no change at all, good or bad, mentally or physically. A couple of weeks before my shipment arrived, I cut out virtually all sweets etc. (just to jump start things). I had terrible cravings to fight off. And I still do. My skin still itches, I have had zero weight loss, skin blotches are still there etc. In truth I didn't know what to expect via the use of Keybiotics. But with all of the claims being made, I was expecting something. Fortunately I have never had a problem sleeping, and still don't. So, in some ways I was not expecting any improvement. And. fortunately neither my daughter or I experienced any negative results from the Probiotics. It seems to me that this is just the latest in health fads and claims. And it too will fade away.
Before ordering Keybiotics I read numerous reviews by organizations etc. who stated that Keybiotics claims as to what their product claimed was 100% accurate. And I have no reason to doubt their claims. Kepbiotics may indeed be on top of the list for accurate claims etc. But, quite honestly after two of us taking the product for a month, all I can say is .... 37.5 billion CFU's/capsule .... so what? I was quite hopeful and positive about Keybiotics (and probiotics in general) a few months ago. All I have to look forward to now is using up my last four bottles so that I can be done with them once and for all .... unfortunately.
Just got my supply of Keybiotics. Hoping to help myself with some possible sugar overgrowth and cravings, try and lose some weight, and start thinking more about eating better foods. These are pretty effective and work fast to get you going regular. I think they are a good buy, but if you can find probiotics close at home try those first of course, but ultimately, you may have to take more of those and the cost would likely be the same. Shop around on the internet for good deals for this product.
I would not recommend signing up for autoship - just try to order it with no strings attached, then use it faithfully for the 30-days or how ever many bottles you bought. IF I recommend anything to this company is to lower the cost, and fill the bottles to contain a 3 month supply in one bottle. (100 tabs per bottle. It's silly/wasteful to only have 30 tabs in the bottle. Then bring the 3-month price down to about $30 and you have a good product that is sustainable for the long run. As it is, once my supply is gone, I will likely seek out another pro-biotic at my local health food or drugstore.
I agree that spend 1-2 dollars a day on this product is costly, but then taking all kinds of other things is costly too.
Reduce your junk food and sugar intake and you will have money for this instead. I'll try to report back in a month or so.
It is the single best thing I've decided to do for my body
I'm a 41 year old male and while not having as severe symptoms as some of the folks that have shared but after watching the video on New Year's Eve, refined sugar scared the crap out of me. No puns intended. It's in everything we eat everyday. I have been suffering acid reflux for many years and I am constantly tired so I decided to order Keybiotics. I agree, it did take forever to get to me but that's expected when you choose free shipping. I could have paid for next day delivery as can anyone not wanting to wait but did not.
I have been taking them for 5 days and can already tell a difference in my reflux and hopefully will continue to reap the benefits as the days and weeks go by. I am a sales rep for the biggest window manufacturer in the country and am on the road all day everyday and have all of a sudden stopped stopping for junk food and fast food (same thing). I am a fast believer in Whole Body Research and Keybiotics. If you are thinking about it do like Nike says, "Just Do It"! If it doesn't work for you they will refund 100% of your money so you have nothing to lose.
Great energy! Usually feel sluggish getting up in the morning, now I just get right up with energy! Love this product!
I watched the promotional video and found it to be very informative. At first I was reluctant because 30 pills for x amount of money? But then I was convinced by my husband that Keybiotics would help me with my skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema, in addition to my depression and stress levels. Everything was linked to one another. If I was stressed it was from work that would lead to not eating well because I never had time. So eating fast food was a norm. After just taking the product for one week I feel different in a good way. I wake up and feel energized. I am more aware and have even changed my diet. No more McDonalds because my body knows now not to want it. It's like a junk food repellent.
I recommend this product for those who wish to make a choice to a better and healthier lifestyle. I will check back in 3 months and write another review. Let's see. I was also reading the other reviews and saw that someone missed a day?! That's not surprising. In the end I feel very good about my choice.
I've been using this product for 2 weeks now and what a big difference it as made. For the last eight years I was convinced I had IBS-D, had all the symptons diearrah, bloating stomach pains, changed my diet and tried over the counter pills a number of times but nothing seemed to work. Had all the tests done, all came back fine and all the doctors would say is take lots of fiber but that seemed to make it worse. So after seeing the video on this product I thought for $40.00 I'll give it a try and boy was I glad i did. No more stomach pains, no more diearrah just one good bm a day, lots more energy and sleeping great. Everything this company said is true. I highly recommend this product. No more worrying about where the nearest bathroom is anymore, now the only thing I worry about is if this company will stay in buisiness.
I have taken this product for almost a month now, and I do have a lot of energy and I feed really good everyday. I am less depressed. In addition I have lot a few pounds.
Very disappointed with the promised results!
For about 18 yrs I have been trying to find out what’s causing my stomach pain problems. Done many endoscopy and colonoscopy and tried many medications, from acid reflux to crohn’s disease as doctor couldn’t give a diagnosis, so they are guessing it is IBS.
The Keybiotics promotional video is very educational and based on facts that I believe to be true, but honestly I believe is very well done marketing way to sell this product that is not worth its price. To reduce the cost I decided on the 6 month supply. It has not worked at all and on the contrary has me made feel worse. I have been using it for about 1 week and half and they indicate you can see positive results within 3 days. I would be very happy to be first to post positive reviews about this product if it worked to me because I have been trying to find something that would work for me for so long.
I also want praise and recommend a similar product that I have been using for the last 6 months which has done much better for men and only cost $ 7.99 a month, its called Digestive Advantage, daily probiotic and can be found at any major stores at the OTC departments and is made by Schiff and has worked wonders for me.
Watching the video I was thrilled I had found something that would help me with my problem, thinking this product would be better than what I have been taking for the last 6 months. I will give it another week of trying this product because I have 6 bottles and if doesn’t do anything I will return and ask for refund and instead of paying $40 with the shipping cost I will continute to use The Digestive Advantage. It has about 3 different formulation, only one works for me, so you have to try and see what the symptoms you are having because they are to specific symptoms.
