Acidophilus General Information
Acidophilus is a normal and important friendly/healthy bacteria inhabitant of healthy human intestines (called flora). It can help control the growth of undesirable microorganisms entering the digestive system. It also helps regulate our digestve system and stool patterns. Yeast also lives in our intestines. This healthy bacteria (acidophilus) protects the intestines and vagina from the undesirable bad bacteria that can cause harmful diseases in our bodies. In addition, research indicates Acidophilus can improve the digestion of lactose. Acidophilus helps prevent chronic constipation and improves digestion. The breakdown of food by Lactobacillus Acidophilus produces lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other byproducts that make the environment hostile for undesired organisms.

What Happens to the Acidophilus in Our Body
Commercial food processing procedures often destroy viable benefical organisms, making it difficult for the body to maintain good intestinal flora. Though yogurt products carry Acidophilus you need to read the label to make sure there is some in there, some yogurts do not have a viable source of Acidophilus. Preservatives, additives, high-fat diets, alcohol, birth control pills, and stress can all result in poor intestinal flora. Antibiotic drugs are especially damaging to intestinal flora and kills all kinds of bacteria, both the good ones and the bad ones. The effects of antibiotic use on the intestinal flora can last for weeks even after you have finished taking your antibiotics. Often leading to yeast overgrowth, chronic infections, poor digestion, fatigue or allergies. Acidophilus supplements can put back the beneficial bacteria into the system. Acidophilus supplements usually work quickly and powerful because they contain as many as one billion individual friendly bacteria per gram. Some of the benefits of using a supplement can include the following:

  • Keeping constipation and diarrhea under control
  • Decreasing bad breath
  • Decreasing internal gas
  • Cholesterol control by encouraging normal absorption of dietary fats
  • Suppression of candida yeast
  • Suppression of a number of intestinal disorders
  • Prevention of intestinal contamination from infectious organisms common in some foreign countries

Lactobacillus Acidophilus
Lactobacillus Acidophilus (L. Acidophilus) is the most commonly used probiotic, or "friendly" bacteria. This type of friendly bacteria lives in the intestines and vagina and protects against the entrance and proliferation of "bad" organisms that can cause disease. This is accomplished through a variety of mechanisms. For example, the breakdown of food by L. Acidophilus leads to production of lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other byproducts that make the environment hostile for undesired organisms. L. Acidophilus also produces lactose, the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars. People who are lactose intolerant do not produce this enzyme.

Acidophilus Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Acidophilus is most commonly used for poor digestion, the prevention of bacterial overgrowth, and to re-balance bacteria levels in the intestines. The fact is that the scientific community has found many ways that Acidophilus and L. Acidophilus can help the human body. Here are some examples:

  • Replacing the "friendly" intestinal bacteria destroyed by antibiotics
  • Aiding digestion and suppressing disease causing bacteria
  • Treating overgrowth of "bad" organisms in the gastrointestinal tract, a condition that tends to cause diarrhea and may occur from use of antibiotics
  • Alleviating symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and, possibley, inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colites. (research continues on these)
  • Preventing and/or reducing the recurrence of vaginal yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and Cystitis (bladder inflammation). Now, the best scientific evidence exists for vaginal infections.
  • Enhancing the immune respnse. Studies have suggested that consumption fo yogurt of milk that contains specific strains of Lactobacillus or supplements with Lactobacillus may improve the natural immune response.
  • Aiding in the treatment of respiratory infections such as sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia. (research continues in this area)
  • Lowering risk of allergies, such as asthma, allergies to milk, hay fever, and skin reactions such as eczema.


As you can see Acidophilus is an amazing supplement that we can take. Our body does in deed make this naturally, but there are times in our life span that we will need to help our bodies out. This supplement willd do wonderful things to help.
