Acidophilus: One of Nature’s Good Bacteria

Posted by James Whitley on

From hand sanitizers that promise to kill 99.9% of all bacteria to antibiotics that are dispensed to us to treat a plethora of diseases; we human beings are intent on eradicating these tiny organisms wherever we encounter them. However, the problem is that not all bacteria are harmful to us. Indeed, some – such as acidophilus – are actually beneficial to us. Acidophilus (or Lactobacillus Acidophilus) is a form of bacteria that is found in the intestines, mouth, and/or female genitals. Rather than causing disease, it produces vitamin K as well as lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose (the sugar that occurs naturally in milk). How does it work?Acidophilus300x225 Acidophilus is a Probiotic that works by suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria, and/or pathogens that can cause disease in the digestive tract. (Probiotics are any bacteria that stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms that are good for the body. Other Probiotic strains include: L. Rhamnosus, L. Helveticus, B. Infantis, B. Lactis and Lactogg.) In addition to controlling harmful bacteria, L. Acidophilus also helps the body by breaking down food and absorbing nutrients. Foods that contain Probiotics include yogurt, Sauerkraut, soft cheeses, sourdough bread and Tempeh. The benefits of Acidophilus The side effects of Acidophilus are thought to be relatively minor. They can include some minor gas and or bloating. They can generally be controlled by staying hydrated and controlling the dosage. Cape Fear Naturals recommends only 1 to 2 capsules a day of our Acidophilus. Some of the benefits that are believed to be derived from Acidophilus include its ability to:
  • Prevent and treat diarrhea
  • Reduce overgrowth of pathogens in your digestive tract
  • Relieve Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s disease, and gut dysbiosis
  • Decrease frequency of vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections
  • Increase your immune response
  • Treat respiratory infections
  • Improve Blood Pressure & Cholesterol
  • Enhance calcium absorption
Cape Fear Naturals Acidophilus comes in a 60 count bottle containing 6 billion units per capsule and 8 different strains of this vital Probiotic as part of our commitment to promoting natural health products. Our L. Acidophilus is best taken with FOS (Fructo Oligo Saccharides) & L-Glutamine. Yes, some people may have waged a war on all bacteria without attempting to distinguish the good from the bad, but many others are acquainting themselves with Acidophilus. They are learning how this vital Probiotic is to our overall health. At Cape Fear Naturals we believe that natural products are a fundamental resource for maintaining health and the quality of life.
