Bio-Dophilus by Douglas Laboratories is a combination of probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which provides a minimum of 2.8 billion viable microorganisms per capsule. Bio-Dophilus contains an acid-resistant capsule that provides the live cultures protection in stomach acid and allows for a pH targeted release in intestinal fluid.
This product is free of preservatives and common allergens, including dairy, wheat, and soy. The microorganisms are harvested and freeze-dried when they are at their maximum concentration. Each batch is assayed to guarantee consistent potency when stored at proper room temperatures.
Oral supplements of live, beneficial intestinal micro-organisms for nutritional health and well-being are known as probiotics. Probiotic dietary lactobacilli colonize the intestinal tract, depending on the specific bacterium-to- host affinity. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. The original bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient bacteria; however, the composition of the intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly changing.
If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms.
Bio-Dophilus may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support the intestinal microflora with meaningful amounts of beneficial microorganisms.
