Many people will shrink back in disgust and grab disinfecting wipes upon hearing the word "bacteria." There are, however, many useful strains of bacteria which are essential to good health in humans. In fact, humans could not survive if certain strains of bacteria were not present in the body. The term "Probiotic" refers to types of bacteria which, when ingested in specific amounts, offer health benefits; but what health benefits can bacteria possibly offer?
Acidophilus ProBiotic-5 from KAL contains strains of L. Acidophilus, Lactobacillus ssp., L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, and B. Bifidum. This proprietary blend of Probiotic bacteria contains over 3 billion microorganisms per capsule at the time of manufacture. These viable strains of microorganisms help maintain healthy populations of intestinal flora, which in turn helps prevent infection, boosts immune function, and promotes good digestion. Acidophilus ProBiotic-5 may also help prevent a yeast infection (Candidiasis) from occurring after having been on antibiotics.

Acidophilus, no dairy of yogurt, and probiotics? Can you go wrong? Beneficial plus! is what they should name this product, a great complement to any diet with dairy restrictions and the need to combat bad or evil flora in the digestive tract.

Asked on: August 13, 2013 Question: I take a digestive enzyme every time I eat a meal, can I take a probiotic once a day as well? (i.e., probiotic in the morning before I eat, then take my digestive enzyme with each meal, using GNC Super digestive enzyme)?
00A: Make sure to read your supplement bottle for any warnings as that should be the best indication if there could be any interaction. If you are further concerned or have any medical conditions you may want to run it by your physician. We do not carry GNC products but most of the probiotic products we carry can be taken with other supplements without problem.
