Did you realise that your stomach lining, mouth and even your uterine tract are all linked by one common factor? They all contain this one 'friendly bacteria' - Lactobacillus Acidophilus. It helps fight and protect against pathogenic microbes like E.Coli, Salmonella and Yeast Infections. Boost your body's supply with this handy, daily supplement.
Probiotics are everywhere these days so which ones can you really trust to deliver the best available protection from harmful bacteria and which ones really work when introduced to the hostile environment of our acid laden digestive systems?
Whether you suffer from lactose intolerance, frequent yeast infections, or acid reflux, you will at some point have suffered from a deficiency of this vital, naturally occurring bacteria - Lactobacillus Acidophilus. Its new latin name actually translates as 'Acid-loving Milk-Bacterium' which gives you a pretty clear idea of its role and abilities within the oral and gastrointestinal tracts.
But it also thrives in our urethra and, in the case of the fairer sex, the vaginal and cervical tracts too. Swanson Acidophilus is a species of gram positive bacteria which means that we use it to support a healthier digestive system through its ability to assist in the absorption and breakdown of food. All the while creating an effective barrier against harmful bacteria and pathogenic microbes.
So how does it work?
Swanson Acidophilus is unique because not only is it naturally occurring - so it is an inherently bioavailable nutritive supplement - but also because it has a low PH level. This means that it can survive gastrointestinal transit far better than many other probiotics.
It possesses a resistance to bile, low PH levels and digestive enzymes which could potentially break down other, less hardy probiotics. The beauty of Swanson Acidophilus' resistance is that it allows the bacteria to adhere to the human epithelial cell lining as well as the human intestinal mucus - forming a more complete line of defence.
So if Lactobacillus Acidophilus is naturally occuring then why do we need to supplement it with Swanson Acidophilus? It's easy for your levels of this friendly bacteria to drop below the amount necessary to create a balanced flora cultivation in your intestines, mouths or urethra. The RDI (recommended daily allowance) is anywhere between one billion and ten billion cultures so supplementation is paramount if you want to avoid some of these nasty microbes.
By producing lactic and other types of acids, Swanson Acidophilus can aid the inhibition and adherence of all of these unwanted, unfriendly bacteria to deliver full body protection.
