This is one of the UK’s most recommended live bacteria (probiotic) products. Probiotics are naturally found in your body, but when you lose "good" bacteria in your body (like after you take antibiotics, for example), probiotics can help replace them. They can help balance your "good" and "bad" bacteria to keep your body working like it should.
Our digestive system is colonised by billions of bacteria and most of them are harmless. However, during times of stress, travel, illness, changes in the diet, and taking antibiotics, the unfriendly bacteria sometimes overwhelm the friendly beacteria. In these situations, practitioners frequently recommend the use of probiotics (capsules containing beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus aacidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum).
Lamberts Acidophilus Extra 4 is a top selling, milk free, acidophilus product containing 4 billion bacteria per capsule (at the time of manufacture). The two species of bacteria in this product have been used in over 200 clinical studies and to ensure maximum potency, Lamberts store this product in refrigerated conditions until despatch. They also include a desiccant lining in every pot since moisture is known to be a main factor in spoiling viability.
The bacteria in Acidophilus Extra 4 are freeze dried with an acid stable polysaccharide which surrounds the bacteria, helping to protect them from the highly acidic conditions they encounter in the stomach.
Daily Intake: 2 Capsules daily one in the morning and one in the evening with a glass of milk or water or with a meal. Do not swallow capsules with hot drinks; heat kills bacteria. Take at least 2 hours after antibiotic medication.
