Acidophilus probiotics may help populate the GI tract with the natural flora needed to help support digestive health. Having proper intestinal pH balance in the gut is linked to healthy intestinal flora. Each capsule of our Acidophilus Probiotic with Pectin contains a specially cultured strain of lactobacillus acidophilus. Lactobacillus acidophilus and other related organisms inhabit the human intestinal tract and are referred to as “friendly bacteria”. Such organisms can be found in cultured food such as yogurt and fermented vegetables. Optimizing gut health may help digestion, free up valuable nutrients, and support normal immunity. Pectin from citrus fruits provides a plant-based soluble fiber with prebiotic properties. Being a prebiotic fiber, it bypasses human digestion in the small intestine, but is readily metabolized by microbes in the large intestine, where it may stimulate growth of friendly bacteria like lactobacillus. Having acidophilus with prebiotic fiber together in one supplement may provide a more favorable environment for gut health than either of them do individually. Our formula provides an easy way to get both together in one supplement which may help to support health digestion.
