May I know if there is any shops selling the Cultruelle or ThreeLac brand you mentioned. Personally I am not comfortable buying brands not sold in Singapore. What if it is recalled in their countries due to harmful chemicals? We won't be able to know.
Sure, I fully understand your concerns. A friend and user of ThreeLac recommended this brand of probiotics to me last year. As it was not available in Spore then, I went online and bought from Amazon.com. So far, quite happy with the purchase.
However, recently I found out that there is this shop in Telok Blangah that sells both Threelac and Culturelle priobiotics. The details are:
Back to Basics Alternative Diet
Blk 88A, Telok Blangah Heights, #01-01
Tel: 6276 0872
Op hrs: Tues - Fri 11am - 7pm; Sat 11am - 6pm
A box of Culturelle (30 capsules) costs $39 and a box of Threelac (60 sachets) costs $91. Only need to take one capsule OR sachet a day.
Just wish to clarify that a person need not take both products at the same time. They are 2 different brands and I am giving u the prices for both brands for your comparison.
I know the prices are on the high side. If you want to find out more about the two brands, you can google search and go to Amazon.com to read the testimonials and feedback. So far, most of them are positive.
The only downside to the shop, Back 2 Basics is that it is out of the way.Only one bus goes there (sori, can't remember which one) and it is located on the first floor of a Multi-story car park. THe location is inconvenient but I think that's how the owner passed on her savings to customers to keep costs as affordable as possible.
For info, I know Vitakids sells the brand Culturelle too. However, the price at Vitakids is so much higher as they are selling it at $55 (if not mistaken), compared to the Back2Basics shop which sells for only $39. So the inconvenient location to Telok Blangah is worth making a trip because of better pricing.
Actually, the best day to visit the shop is on Saturday as that's when the owner is around to manage the shop. She's rather knowledgeable and would be able to advise u better. She sells other supplments, vitamins and organic food at her shop too.
Btw, just wish to clarify that I do not personally know the owner at Back 2 Basics nor do I have a commercial gain in the recommendation. But as we always say in KSP, good things must share
Hope the above helps.
