Frequently Asked Questions
What is the outer coating of the Acidophilus Pearls™ made of?
The outer coating components are part of the True Delivery Technology™ system, which protects the probiotic bacteria from the harsh acid stomach acid so that they can be released into the intestines. The coating ingredients, pectin and gelatin, are listed on the label.
Why does Acidophilus Pearls™ active cultures contain only 1 billion bacteria? Some other probiotic supplements contain several billion.
Our company offers many different probiotics in different amounts to suit different needs. Acidophilus Pearls™ offers 1 billion cfu, the general daily recommendation, in a tiny pearl-shaped capsule. This amount confers health benefits because the probiotics are protected from heat, moisture, and stomach acid so they can arrive intact in the intestines.
Why does Acidophilus Pearls™ contain only two strains of probiotics?
Acidophilus Pearls™ provides Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum, two probiotic bacteria with the greatest amount of research and clinical support.
In fact, over 75 years of published research has shown that beneficial bacteria in general, (and Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum in particular) are the most effective in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora every day.
Why would I take Acidophilus Pearls™ instead of yogurt?
Acidophilus Pearls™ provides all the goodness of yogurt without the sugar, fat, calories or lactose. This product offers a beneficial alternative for individuals who are sensitive to dairy and a convenient way to obtain powerful probiotics, anytime - anywhere.† Acidophilus Pearls™ requires no refrigeration, no spoon, and no hassle.
In addition, there is some question about the actual probiotic count found in yogurt products. The National Yogurt Association (NYA) has established criteria for products that carry the Live & Active Culture seal. While the probiotic count is set at the time of manufacture, the "time" has not been well defined (i.e., Before or after fermentation?, Before or after packaging?). Either process may require high temperatures and potentially damage the fragile probiotic bacteria.
Acidophilus Pearls™, on the other hand, is guaranteed to deliver 1 billion beneficial probiotic bacteria to the intestines throughout product shelf-life.
