AquaSource Lactobacillus Acidophilus with Algae
Acidophilus + algae – 50 capsules
Acidophilus – inhabits the small intestine. This beneficial bacteria also supports a healthy digestive process. AquaSource Algae – Freeze-dried at low temperatures using our patented BioActive Dehydration® method, blue-green AquaSource algae from Upper Klamath Lake is an extremely pure source, rich in a huge number of essential nutrients on a gram-per-gram basis.
Superior probiotic supplemented with the benefits of AquaSource Superfood* algae
Our unique strain of acidophilus supports the good functioning of the gastrointestinal tract and the balance of intestinal flora necessary to maintain good digestion and a more complete absorption of nutrients from food. The AquaSource algae superfood* has been added to provide a wide range of nutrients including antioxidants, beta carotene and chlorophyll.
Probiotics are healthy bacteria that have long been known to supplement the natural bacteria needed to promote proper digestion. One strain that has been shown to better colonise the gut for extended periods with regular use and provide more substantial health benefits was discovered by Dr. Khema Shahani, a professor of food technology at the University of Nebraska. This strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus, known as DDS-1, has been shown to remain unaffected by stomach acidity, resist bile salts and grow well in the intestine. This is the strain used in our product.
Main advantages of AquaSource Acidophilus
Supports the overall health of the intestinal tract – changes in the microbial balance of the gut can occur due to diet, health problems, certain treatments or poor intestinal health. Out probiotic helps maintain overall intestinal health by introducing desirable bacteria into the gut that can be maintained with regular use.
Provides vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid – AquaSource Acidophilus provides vitamins B12, B6 and folic acid while helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels when taken daily as a dietary supplement.
Support lactose intolerance – our AquaSource Acidophilus produces more lactic acid and beta-galactosidase than other strains of L. acidophilus. Since people with lactose intolerance have low levels of this enzyme, this may be a useful way to help regulate lactase deficiency.
Supports gut health – changes in the microbial balance of the gut can occur as a result of diet, certain treatments, health problems or poor gut health. Although the normal microflora obtained at birth is usually relatively durable in creating protection against unwanted bacteria, when homeostasis is disrupted, the health of the gastrointestinal tract can be affected in a negative way. Regular use of probiotics such as AquaSource Acidophilus helps maintain gut health by promoting the preservation of good bacteria in the gut.
