Your digestive tract is host to about 400 different kinds of bacteria and yeasts. Among these, Lactobacillus acidophilus and other members of the beneficial Lactobacillu and Bifidobacterium family are especially important to your health. Acidophilus is considered a "probiotic" bacteria because it helps to maintain intestinal health, and serves as a natural antibiotic against potentially harmful organisms. Taking Vita Acidophilus as a nutritional supplement will help maintain the normal balance of beneficial bacteria in the intestines and vagina.
Many people take these beneficial bacteria to treat and prevent digestive disorders, and other illnesses. As it boosts benign and suppresses destructive bacteria, Vita Acidophilus allows the body to maintain a healthy intestinal bacterial balance. Vita Acidophilus is often recommended as a safeguard during antibiotic therapy, which can suppress beneficial bacteria and trigger the growth of yeast infections. Vita Acidophilus may offer general health protection, as well. Several studies suggest that these beneficial bacteria function as an immunity enhancer, and may suppress the toxic effects of carcinogens (cancer-causing agents).
Vita Acidophilus may also help with the following disorders:
Adults take 1 capsule daily on an empty stomach or as directed by physician.
No adverse side effects have been reported.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
Keep out of reach of children.
