  • Lol, the funny thing is this issue has been resolved, but it was not the probiotics or the enzymes. I was using my husbands computer and he had that spray dust remover on it, and it has a bitter tasting agent in it. The really funny part is that if you google this you will find that this has happened to alot of people and they have spent hundreds of dollars at doctors trying to figure out what it was only to find out in the end it was their keyboard, lol. Thanks ladies

  • A metallic taste can be a sign of gum disease. Get to your dentist ASAP.

    I take probiotics daily, and have never had this issue.

  • I've never had this issue either. I've taken Align & Sustenax.
