NOW Acidophilus and Bifidus 8 Billion, 120 Caps
 

NOW Acidophilus 8 Billion provides high potencies and a balanced spectrum of beneficial bacteria found in human intestinal tracts.  Regular intake of beneficial probiotics can aid in maintaining healthy intestinal flora.

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.

Bifido bacteria are especially important for maintaining consistent bowel movements, keeping pathogens out of the blood stream and processing our waste. They manufacture B-vitamins and combat antibiotic side effects. Infants primarily have bifidobacterium in their colons and a lack of colonization from this bacteria can increase susceptibility to rotavirus, e coli. and other bacteria.

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.
