Natural Factors Acidophilus and Bifidus, 90 caps
Compared to L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus is 8 to 10 times more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar fermentation (important for people with milk sugar intolerance) has better control over putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting disease-causing pathogens.
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 cow milk to which many people are allergic.
- May prevent antibiotic-induced diarrhea
- Promotes regular bowel movements
- Helps reduce cholesterol levels
- Keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine
5 billion active cells of the following specially cultured strains of probiotics:
L. rhamnosus ............................ 80% 4.00 billion
L. acidophilus ............................ 10% 0.50 billion
B. bifidum .................................. 10% 0.50 billion
- 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.
Pregnancy and Nursing: Generally regarded as safe for use during pregnancy and lactation.
Seniors: No special precautions are known.
