Below we take an in-depth look at Earth’s Pearl Probiotic, to see whether this probiotic formula is a well-priced and well-formulated option.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is a supplement that promises to improve gut health, improve mood, and boost energy. It works by providing customers with a source of “friendly” gut bacteria, which are known to reduce the influence of “bad” bacteria. They also provide their own benefits, such as improving the immune system and reducing the incidence of diarrhoea, and other gut complaints. One early drawback of Earth’s Pearl Probiotic compared to the many other similar products on the market, is that it uses a relatively low CFU count – put simply, this means that this formula is likely to be less potent and impactful than others out there.
Customers should not expect too many side effects when using probiotic supplements. Some may experience gas, bloating, diarrhoea, or stomach upset for the first few days, although those affected should expect these symptoms to dissipate promptly. Some allergic reactions are possible in rare cases; anyone experiencing serious symptoms should contact their doctor.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is very reasonably priced compared to others on the market. A single 60-capsule pack costs as little as $18.87 from Walmart, and is only a little more expensive on Amazon and the official Earth’s Pearl website ($19.87). Those looking for even more discounts have numerous options at their disposal – bulk orders made on the Earth’s Pearl webstore offer customers small discounts depending on the number of packs selected, and customers choosing to enter into the Earth’s Pearl monthly subscription service receive even more discounts.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotic has all the ingredients of a great probiotic product. Most customers seem to love it, with around 90% of the thousands of comments on Amazon expressing praise in some form. In addition, many of the positive comments we spotted go further than offering brief praise, with some claiming that Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is the best they’ve tried in decades. This particular formulation is cheap, mild, and is backed by an exemplary 365-day money-back guarantee. There’s much to like about it.
There are still a few notable drawbacks that cause us concern. Customers of probiotic supplements can measure their chosen product’s strength by taking a look at the CFU count – this information gives us an estimate of how many bacteria are concentrated in each serving. Overly high counts (such as 50 billion) may not be useful for most customers, but a sensible count for a customer looking for ordinary daily relief is around 5-15 billion CFUs per day. At 4 billion CFUs, this particular product is on the weaker side. It also uses just 5 different strains, making it considerably less varied than other brands we have previously reviewed, and uses a pearl delivery system that some customers find difficult to swallow.
Make no mistake, this is not a bad product. We would expect Earth’s Pearl Probiotic to have relatively mild effects that make it useful for casual daily use – this is likely why most customers are drawn to it. The great money-back guarantee also makes trying it out a riskless endeavour. Consider giving it a try if all of this sounds good to you, but we still feel that this formula falls short of other great probiotic supplements like Pro15, which are both stronger and more comprehensive.
Overall, we do not recommend Earth’s Pearl Probiotic to our readers.

Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is a supplement that claims to increase the profile of healthy bacteria in your gut. With an approach that utilises distinctive “pearls” over traditional tablets or capsules, this product is designed so that its bacterial ingredients reach the gut without being destroyed by the acidity of the stomach. Once in the digestive system, Earth’s Pearl Probiotic claims to improve energy, mood, and overall gut health.
This probiotic supplement is manufactured by Earth’s Pearl, a family-run business operating out of Oregon, USA. Despite its humble size, Earth’s Pearl appears to be a popular company, with a strong-selling range of probiotic and vitamin supplements (many of which are branded in partnership with the TV show “The Biggest Loser”). The company claims to pride itself on quality, and backs up this claim with a genuinely-extraordinary 360-day money-back guarantee! Earth’s Pearl can be contacted via the details provided at the bottom of their homepage.
The directions for use are as follows:
Take one pearl daily, anytime. For advanced immune health, take up to three pearls daily, anytime. Do not crush or chew.
On the official Earth’s Pearl website, a number of big claims are made about the health benefits of their flagship probiotic product. The company makes the usual claims made about probiotic supplements (that they ease digestion and improve gut health), but also extends this to saying that probiotics contribute to healthy aging and better vaginal health, whilst also helping the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently.
One of the most intriguing claims made about Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is that it contains “mind-altering psychobiotics” that improve mood. Reportedly, the probiotic bacteria can help the body to produce neurotransmitters that affect behaviour. This supplement also reportedly reduces stress by affecting the adrenal gland and hormone imbalances, and reduces inflammation in the gut (which supposedly has the effect of reducing depression and “thought-processing disorders” generated in the brain).
The slow-release delivery system used by this product means that these effects are supposed to take place over 8 hours or more.
Despite sounding outlandish, most of the claims made by Earth’s Pearl have been associated with probiotics at one stage or another. Probiotic supplements are known to improve gut health and reduce the incidence of IBS, diarrhoea, bloating, or gas. They are also known to improve overall health if customers were previously suffering from imbalances (suggesting that they could improve the aging process), and astonishingly, probiotic supplements haver repeatedly been linked with improving mood and the symptoms of depression or stress (although the mechanism that helps this process to take place is not fully understood). The only claim that the manufacturer makes that it likely false is the implication that this probiotic can improve vaginal health – unfortunately, supplements like these can only do this when placed in the vagina itself!
It’s worth mentioning that the (Colony-Forming Unit) CFU count for this product is rather low, meaning that it may not be as potent as many other products out there. Despite this, the majority of customers report experiencing beneficial effects whilst using it.
The ingredients used in Earth’s Pearl Probiotic are listed below. The ingredient quantities and CFU count listed are correct for 1 pearl capsule. Readers should note that although the ingredient quantities are listed for the overall mix, the in-depth quantity breakdown for the individual strains is not available (which can make it hard to estimate how effective the product is overall).
Probiotic supplements are not often associated with particularly overbearing side effects. In some cases, some customers may experience diarrhoea, gas, bloating, and stomach upset for the first couple of days after use. Miscellaneous allergic reactions are also possible in very rare cases.
We noticed that a couple of customer reviews for Earth’s Pearl Probiotic mentioned serious side effects, such as difficulty breathing, nausea, and vomiting. We would not normally expect to see such worrying side effects from a probiotic supplement, and it’s not clear whether these reviewers experienced a coincidental bout of illness after taking the product or whether this brand is particularly prone to causing more aggressive side effects.
Please consult your healthcare practitioner before using any nutritional supplement, especially if you are taking medications on a regular basis, anticipate surgery, or are otherwise under medical supervision. Product not intended for use by children under 18 or women who are pregnant or lactating.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotic has enjoyed a degree of popularity on Amazon, and is backed by thousands of generally positive customer reviews. Around 90% of customers have positive things to say about this probiotic mix, citing numerous benefits. A few customers expressed disappointment with the pearls themselves (which some find to be sticky and hard to swallow), and some mentioned strange and unusual side effects which we would not expect to see with probiotic supplements.
I’ve been taking these for about 2 weeks and they have greatly improved my chronic issues with abdominal pain, poor digestion and irregularity. I’ve taken probiotics for several years and have tried at least 20 different brands with varying strengths, strains etc. and these are by far the most effective I have ever taken, with noticeable results within just a few days. Thank You for a product that actually exceeds expectations!
After trying several different probiotics, I am now convinced the Earths Pearl is the best I have tried. This is coming from a person who has been taking probiotics since the 1980s. I notice everything is perfect when taking this particular pill, heathy and happy I am!
I have fibromyalgia & IBS is one of the ‘wonderful’ things that come along with it, so was advised to take probiotics, but haven’t really found any that made much difference-until now. I ordered this & faithfully took it every day & after a few weeks, I started noticing that I wasn’t having the ‘issues’ that I normally had. I haven’t changed anything else, so I’m convinced that these have helped. I just took my last one, so I will be putting an order in right away for another supply.
I think this product probably does a good job. Problem is it is not coated, so it sticks to your throat. I have tried for weeks, and each time it sticks and i’m trying not to choke, and it feels like its cutting my throat as i force it down. It is very small, and doesnt seem like it would bother you, but it sticks because its dry.
I took a serving as instructed by directions and I felt bloated with abdominal discomfort within 15-20 minutes of taking it. Last night, August 20th, I took one pill and started having difficulty breathing, bloating, and constipation.
We’ve seen a lot of money-back guarantees over the years, and the arrangement offered by Earth’s Pearl has to rank as potentially the best we’ve seen yet. If customers remain dissatisfied with their purchase, Earth’s Pearl promises to honour returns up to 365 days after purchase, whether the package is opened or even finished. Customers can expect a full refund in all circumstances, making this one of the most risk-free probiotic products out there!
It’s worth mentioning that this arrangement is still advertised in the company’s Q&A and on their Amazon sales page, but has actually been removed from many of the other product pages. The actual returns information page also appears to have been removed entirely, perhaps suggesting that this (very generous) offer may not be around forever.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotic is only available to buy online from Amazon, Walmart, and the official Earth’s Pearl website.
The prices listed on Amazon and the official Earth’s Pearl website are broadly the same, with one 60-capsule pack costing $19.87. Customers can access small discounts when purchasing in bulk (two packs cost $36.87 and three packs cost $52.87) or when signing up for the Earth’s Pearl subscription service. At Walmart, a single pack of Earth’s Pearl Probiotic can be purchased for just $18.87.
