Probiotic that forms part of a natural, healthy gut flora
Active Acidophilus supplies the digestive tract with over 4.6 billion CFU of acid stable probiotic that helps to encourage a healthy, happy tummy. Acidophilus naturally produces lactase, the enzyme responsible for digesting milk, as well as a number of other co-factors that benefit digestion: Vitamin K, enzymes and components that help treat diarrhea. Active Acidophilus is not destabilized in the stomach even with the highly-acidic environment, but makes its way to the small intestine for maximum absorption and benefit to the digestive system.
Essential to the health of the intestinal tract, friendly bacteria exist in a delicate balance that can be easily overturned by improper diet, lifestyle factors, antibiotic use, yeast overgrowth, digestive disorders and more. Over 400 species of friendly bacteria populate the colon, some of which we know as acidophilus and bifidus. Supplementing with a good quality probiotic containing these and other strains helps to establish healthful intestinal flora and keep yeast and bacteria away. Some of the most important players in intestinal health are not part of our own body. Friendly intestinal bacteria, often called probiotics, are an essential part of digestion. They break down food particles, manufacture vitamins and prevent the infection of the tract with other microbes. Each bowel movement actually contains millions of these friendly bacteria; they are in a constant state of renewal. Many health concerns like indigestion, gas, bloating and constipation can be due to an imbalance of the intestinal bacteria. It is easy to upset this balance by improper diet or by taking medications like antibiotics.

GReat product, excellent customer service.
I started taking probiotic after a nasty infection which left me with takin antibiotics for two months
My doctor recommended a good brand which was very costly.
One day I was looking for that brand and the store owner recommended this brand and said it's very good.
It was one third of the one I was normally buying, and it doesn't need to be kept in the fridge, so I decided to give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised.
This one works great
The price is very good
Doesn't need to be kept in the fridge at all times.
