So maybe you take a capsule of Vitamin C every morning before the day begins. Kudos. But it’s in your best interest to broaden your pill regime by including an acidophilus capsule every morning too.

What is Acidophilus?
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a probiotic bacteria that lives in your digestive tract. Acidophilus helps maintain intestinal health and acts as a natural antibiotic that wards off potentially harmful organisms.

Acidophilus is naturally found in yogurt. Yogurt has long been praised for its health benefits, but levels of acidophilus vary depending on the type of yogurt you’re buying. Taking acidophilus pills ensures that you’re getting steady levels.

The Many Benefits of Acidophilus
Acidophilus has so many benefits, among them reducing flatulence and fighting bad breath problems. Here’s a look at what acidophilus does for you.

1. Reduces Flatulence
Acidophilus establishes a healthy balance to the bacteria living in your digestive tract. The gas-producing bacteria in your large intestine are kept from multiplying. This means that as it relieves your flatulence, it also reduces your gassy and bloated feelings. However, remember that during the first few days of acidophilus you will see an increase in flatulence as your digestive tract balances. The few gassy days are definitely worth a lifetime of reduced flatulence!

2. Fights Bad Breath
The bacteria that break down food in your mouth and gut multiply and release bad-smelling gases. Acidophilus keeps these bacteria in check. Along with some good ol’ oral hygiene, acidophilus will help you fight your bad breath, without relying on unhealthy breath fresheners!

3. Controls Vaginal Yeast
Vaginal yeast infections often occur following antibiotic treatments, as these treatments upset the balance of Candida albicans. Acidophilus helps regulate a healthy balance and is therefore quite effective in treating vaginal yeast infections!

4. Helps Diarrhea
Diarrhea, like vaginal yeast infections, often follows antibiotic treatments. Acidophilus restores a healthy bacterial balance and so will fight off diarrhea.

5. Relieves Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects as many as 10-20% of the general population! Studies have shown that acidophilus relieves primary symptoms in up to 50% of individuals with IBS!

Get acidophilus in caplets and follow the directions on the bottle. We wish you a happy and healthy life!
