Probiotic Acidophilus – A Positive Impact On Your Health
December 12, 2007 | By Anita Jackson

The acidophilus probiotic is currently a hot topic of discussion. There are many claims of what it can do. Some people consider it a miracle supplement. Acidophilus, in numerous medical studies, has been deemed helpful for many conditions.*

Acidophilus probiotic's potential benefits are wide and varied.* They can help with mineral absorption and inflammation.* Main stream and alternative medical practitioners recommend adding acidophilus probiotic to your diet in certain circumstances.

In Latin, acidophilus probiotic goes by lactobacillus acidophilus or l. acidophilus. This strain of bacteria is considered beneficial to human bodily functions.* Acidophilus probiotic is a leading producer of Vitamin K and anti-microbial substances.*

Acidophilus probiotic, naturally found in the intestines and vagina, produces lactic acid and other chemicals that repel negative bacteria.* It also produces lactase which helps digest lactose, milk sugars.*

The acidophilus probiotic provides many benefits. With poor diets, many people have problems maintaining intestinal balance of good and bad bacteria. When the acidophilus probiotic is consumed as a supplement or absorbed from food sources, it helps to restore bacterial balance, improving digestive system function.*

After being on a daily regimen of acidophilus probiotic for at least 30 days, people have reported a lower amount of occasional constipation and diarrhea episodes.*

The only downside of adding acidophilus probiotic to your diet is the temporary side effects. Few people experience bloating and gas when they first get started. This is caused by your body's adjustment to proper balance: the reduction of excessive amounts of bad bacteria and introduction of beneficial bacteria. If you're one of the rare cases, these minor side effects usually only last a few days.

The best probiotic supplements should contain acidophilus probiotic complex in adequate quantities. Too few will not solve the problem, and too many can cause other issues. Supplements should contain 10-50 million acidophilus probiotic complexes per gram. Quality is more effective than quantity. Make sure the acidophilus probiotic you consume comes from organic sources. Cheap supplements can come from rather undesirable places.

Any dietary supplement should be accompanied by a high fiber diet, plenty of water and physical activity. This combination should lead to a healthier you.*
