Jul 26, 2008
While the world bacteria could have a bad connotation, there is one that is friendly and good for our body, it is known as Lactobacillus Acidophilus and it have been around us for long time, but is not well known by many people. Consequently, in this article we will try to make an unbiased review of the main aspects of this friendly bacteria, hopefully you will find it useful and informative.

Acidophilus is a microorganism which promotes digestive and intestinal health. Acidophilus is also called lactobacillus acidophilus, it is available in a dairy-free form because many people are lactose intolerant and/or do not consume animal products. Acidophilus may provide additional health benefits, including a boosted immune system, improved gastrointestinal function, and a decrease in the frequency of vaginal yeast infections.

Acidophilus may also provides relief from indigestion and diarrhea, It also improves food digestion and absorption. It is believed to reduce the risk of colon cancer and improve food digestion and absorption and detoxify harmful substances. Acidophilus also assist in producing folic acid, niacin, and pyridoxine, biotin, vitamin B5, and vitamin B12

Several scientific studies have shown that acidophilus Pearls deliver 800 per cent more probiotics to the intestines than other similar products. Acidophilus supplements usually work quickly and effectively because they contain as many as one billion individual friendly bacteria per gram. Acidophilus is not measured in milligrams but in billions of bacteria by the way. However, and this is very important, acidophilus has not been evaluated by the FDA for safety, effectiveness, or purity. All potential risks and/or advantages of acidophilus may not be known.

Acidophilus supplements should be taken daily to maintain optimum digestive and immune health. Acidophilus produces natural antibiotics and hydrogen peroxide. Many people believe in the use of hydrogen peroxide. Acidophilus milk, cultured with the bacterium Lactobacillus acidophilus, may be a digestible alternative to fresh milk.

Acidophilus is available from carrots, soybeans, rice starch, garbanzo and beans. It can also be found in yogurt, kefir and other sources. Nonetheless, it is available in pills granules and powder formulation, jars and capsules are available in most good health shops.

Many of the new strains of acidophilus discovered are exceptional, although they have existed in the gut of humans for a long time, we are only just discovering them now. Even now, that seems like a lot of bacteria. Acidophilus can help protect the body against harmful bacteria, parasites, and other organisms. As stated previously, acidophilus produces things such as hydrogen peroxide that create a toxic environment for unhealthy creatures in the body, helping to drive them out.

To sum up, lactobacillus acidophilus is generally believed to be healthy for the body, and you can find it in several forms without medical prescription.
