Acidophilus (Stabilized) 3 Billion, 180 Tabs
 
NOW Stabilized Acidophilus 3 Billion is a real-time lab tested acidophilus. Because some strains of acidophilus are more stable than others, scientiests have developed a proprietary method that optimizes growth medium during fermentation.

This method uses specific fermentation and drying techniques to insure that each batch of stabilized acidophilus contains the hardiest strains of this important probiotic. In addition, substantial overages are incorporated to guarantee full potency at room temperature for the entire life of the product. Finally, stabilized Acidophilus is packaged in glass for maximum protection from moisture.

Probiotics are good bacteria that are essential to a fully-functioning immune system.  You have 5-6 pounds of bacteria in your gut where the immunse system is located, and it is important to keep a good ratio of good and bad probiotics.  Ideally you would like to have 85-90% good bacteria.  Overuse of antibiotics, poor diet and lifestyle, and toxins all lead to an overgrowth of bad bacteria.

Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that are similar to other organisms that live in the digestive tract. Certain strains or types of probiotics have been linked to all sorts of health benefits, helping with irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, and the infamous traveler’s diarrhea, to boosting the immune system.

They're often used when taking antibiotics to combat diarrhea that may result from taking antibiotics.

Probiotics interact with the immune system and provide a host of benefits to prevent or treat diseases. They include irritable bowel disorders such as ulcerative colitis, candida, diarrhea, and even autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, autism and others.

The effects of probiotics on the immune system is profound.  Beneficial bacteria in your intestines crowd out harmful bacteria and have a direct effect on your immune response. Unfortunately, changes in the bacteria in the gut occur as we age, and in particular a decline in Bifidobacteria, which inhibit pathogenic microbes. This increases the susceptibility to colds, flu and infections, but probiotics can help restore it.

Antibiotics kill the beneficial, good bacteria along with the bad. When these protective bacteria are wiped out, pathogenic bacteria and other organisms move in, causing diarrhea, yeast overgrowth in the vagina and intestines, and a host of other issues. The good bacteria must be cultivated by taking a good probiotic.
