Is DanActive working?

[Breaking news, DanActive isn't working! Go here to read all about it!]

Check to see if he is on your payroll.

This might remind you of an old time medicine wagon remedy.


That isn't a good question to ask. I should ask if it is working. DanActive is a drink made by the Dannon company.

The box says: "Try on bottle per day for a month. If it doesn't make a difference, we'll refund your purchase price (up to $17.96). Offer starts September 1, 2005 and ends March 2, 2006. Official rules inside."

The rules are too small to read without a magnifying glass. I can read that the rules are available on DanActive.com or 1-877-DanActive.

No need to check the rules, DanActive is working for me after one week. Mrs. Jim and I are using DanActive Light with the same offer.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here is what it is supposed to do:

"DanActive is clinically proven to help naturally strengthen your body's defense system.

Take the DanActive Challenge and find out for yourself!"

"DanActive is a probiotic and contains over 10 billion cultures per bottle, including L.casei Defensis, L.bulgaricus and S.thermophilus cultures.

Probiotic literally means "for life" and refers to living microorganisms that, when consumed in sufficient numbers, exert health beneficts beyond basic nutrition.

DanActive helps strengthen your body's defense system."

I was told by an as yet not named relative that this drink will make us regular and may eliminate constipation. This was great news to me, as I was regular, buy almost to the verge of being constipated.

My problem stemmed from medication side effects. Two medicines especially. One might cause diarrhea and the other might cause constipation. For a while I actually boasted that they had a balancing effect on my system. Then for no apparent reason, the constipation side began winning.

DanActive put me back on the desirable side of this dilemma. Mrs. Jim hasn't passed judgment yet. For now, I will say it works.

Active cultures (nothing was mentioned about active ingredients, it must not be medicine) are L.BULGARICUS, S.THERMOPHILUS and L.CASEI DEFENSIS.

I haven't researched these, but think they are in sour milk.

We should be able to make this in our blenders.

So what is the active ingredient? Like you say, we could probably make something as worthwhile in our blenders.

Maybe it will improve your eyesight and you'll be able to read the label.
 
I drink them also and think they are really great..... definitely great for the system and keeps it in checks and balances.
