D.L. Acidophilus + Pectin
D.L. Acidophilus + Pectin capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contain a synergistic blend of the beneficial microorganisms Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus for gastrointestinal health.
Oral supplements of live, beneficial intestinal micro-organisms for nutritional health and well-being are known as probiotics. Probiotic dietary acidophilus 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. Nevertheless, 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.
D.L. Acidophilus + Pectin capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their intestinal microflora with meaningful amounts of beneficial microorganisms.
