Acidophilus CapsulesRef: 3412
Repopulate your gut with good bacteria by using this acidophilus probiotic supplement which can help the digestive system, the immune system and allergic problems. High strength probiotic formula with 10 billion friendly bacteria per capsule. Buy this product because it contains strains that survive the stomach acid. Great for anti-candida diets.
Probiotics without all the sugar in many probiotic drinks. Cheaper than probiotic drinks. Probiotic drinks are widely advertised in the press and on TV. Many of these contain sugar. Taking probiotics in capsules is cheaper and ensures you only get what you need - helpful digestive bacteria. Probably the UK's most potent probiotic - equivalent to 20 full pots of a leading supermarket's bio-yoghurt.
High strength probiotic formula. Each capsule contains 10 billion friendly bacteria (Lactobacillus acidophilus La-5 and Bifidobacterium both of which have proved effective in many clinical trials.) Many cheaper supplements only contain 4 billion bacteria (or even less), and some don't contain the right strains. Don't waste your money on cheap supplements that don't work.
The probiotic bacteria are very beneficial for our health:
Can be used as part of a candida programme, or for those with digestive problems or ending a course of antibiotics.
A study in the journal Clinical and Experimental Allergy in 2008 looked at the benefits of probiotics for hay fever sufferers. Researchers gave one group of volunteers probiotics, and took blood samples from each volunteer before, during, and after grass pollen season, checking for antibody levels of immunoglobulin E (IgE). Those who took the probiotics had significantly lower levels of IgE specific for grass pollens and other allergy-related immune substances at peak season and afterward. (www.medicinenet.com)
The gut contains billions of friendly bacteria. It is estimated that about 500 different ones make their homes inside us. Surprisingly about 60% of faeces is made up of bacteria.
Stress, antibiotics, certain drugs and female hormones can cause the balance to tip away from the favourable bacteria and towards unfavourable organisms. The friendly bacteria in this supplement help to keep the balance in favour of the bacteria that are beneficial to our health. Some people appear to need to take these long term in order to sustain the healthy bacteria colonies.
It used to be thought that taking a supplement like this was useless, as the bacteria would be destroyed in the stomach long before they get to the gut. Newer research has shown that some bacteria do survive and are effective at increasing the population of friendly bacteria in the gut. Lactobacillus acidophilus La-5 and Bifidobacterium have this ability to survive the stomach.
The dose in this probiotic capsule has been established based on clinical trials - higher doses may cause mild abdominal discomfort, and smaller doses may not be able to establish a stable population in the gut.
If you know you are going into hospital for an operation, take a probiotic supplement starting a few days before you go in and continuing for about a week afterwards.
