Acidophilus is a “friendly” bacteria which normalizes and balances the intestinal flora necessary for good health. Dietary changes, contaminated water, use of antibiotics and other factors cause the body to deplete its supply of these “friendly” bacteria. Acidophilus has the ability to kill off harmful bacteria by secreting small quantities of antibiotic-like substances which have a beneficial effect against harmful, food-borne bacteria (1,2,3,4,5,6). It helps to prevent the undesirable side effects of antibiotics, including diarrhea, digestive problems and vaginal yeast infections (1,2,3,4,5,6). An overgrowth of harmful bacteria or yeast may promote diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (rheumatoid arthritis of the spine), colitis, diabetes, meningitis, myasthenia gravis, thyroid disease and bowel cancer. Acidophilus prevents these overgrowths from occurring in the digestive tract (1,2,3,4,5,6).
