Natural Factors Acidophilus & Bifidus Double Strength, 90 caps
L .acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth. Studies have show that L. acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, inhibiting undesirable organisms in the intestine, reducing cholesterol levels and controlling diarrhea.
B. bifidus helps maintain health of the large intestine in both children and adults, promoting regular bowel movements, giving protection from yeast and bacterial pathogens such as E. coli, Clostridium and Shigella infections. Goat milk is an excellent environment for lactic bacteria because it helps beneficial bacteria proliferate. It also lacks a specific protein that is found in cows milk to which many people are allergic.

- Studies in humans indicate that lactobacillus preparations do not appear to interfere with the effectiveness of antibiotics, but may prevent antibiotic-induced diarrhea.
- If taking antibiotics wait 2 hours before ingesting probiotics.
- Exceedingly safe. However, be aware that there may be a period of digestive adjustment while the body adjusts to any new probiotic strain.
- As well, the superior 'attacking' power of L. rhamnosus against negative bacteria and yeast may temporarily release more toxins, resulting in flu-like symptoms.
- If this happens, just cut back on the dosage until the toxins are removed from the body. Gradually return to your usual dosage.
