Using Lactobacillus Acidophilus As A Natural Solution
June 15, 2012 | By Tom Dixon

Most people have become dependent on doctors for every small concern.

Colds and flu virus are often treated with antibiotics or vaccines. Chemical substances can sometimes bring negative side effects. Antibiotics kill your body's necessary beneficial bacteria.

Most medications ease symptoms after feeling sick, but don't resolve the root of the problem.

All-natural probiotics, like lactobacillus acidophilus, help support natural defenses and relieve occasional digestive discomforts.*

Why Your Body Needs Lactobacillus Acidophilus

Your body is home to millions of bacteria. Many people only see bacteria as harmful substances. However, there are millions of beneficial bacteria, necessary for proper digestion, living in your intestine and stomach.

Probiotics, like lactobacillus acidophilus are members of this powerful class of bacteria, producing natural antibodies to maintain a healthy body.* A lack of lactobacillus acidophilus could allow bad bacteria in your digestive system to gain advantage over good bacteria.*

How Does a Lactobacillus Acidophilus Probiotic Work?

For many centuries, other cultures have been reaping the benefits of lactobacillus acidophilus naturally found in their diet. Recently, the western world has started realizing how beneficial lactobacillus acidophilus can be.*

Foods that naturally contain a lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic include:

  • Natto
  • Kimchi
  • Yogurt
  • Miso
  • Tempeh
  • Sauerkraut
  • Kefir

Gaining access to these lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic foods can be difficult and expensive. Unless a moderate amount of these foods is eaten on a daily basis, it's tough to gain the full benefits from lactobacillus acidophilus. An easy alternative could be lactobacillus acidophilus supplements.

Choosing Lactobacillus Acidophilus Supplements

If you're interested in trying lactobacillus acidophilus supplements, make sure to find a reputable brand. The best lactobacillus acidophilus supplements will include a proprietary blend of the most effective probiotics and prebiotics consistent with Good Manufacturing Processes.

The probiotic supplements you choose should not only include lactobacillus acidophilus as an ingredient, but they should also contain prebiotics. Prebiotics help the good bacteria to grow and colonize while journeying through the intestinal gut.* Also look for probiotics that include inulin, which can come from a plant called chicory root.
