Product Information

Acidophilus Extra 4 Billion is one of our top-selling formulas, with each easy-to-swallow capsule delivering 4 billion live bacteria. We often recommend our acidophilus capsules to people who want to take a live bacteria product long-term. Acidophilus Extra 4 Billion is also safe for children and can be taken during pregnancy.

Our acidophilus capsules contain strains of live bacteria originally isolated from humans and widely used in clinical studies: Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium. These bacteria are far more at home in our digestive system than the live bacteria found in yoghurt.

We've encapsulated Acidophilus Extra 4 Billion in unique delay-release capsules to protect the acid-sensitive bacteria from the low pH of the stomach. The sophisticated properties of our acidophilus capsules slow the rate at which they open, ensuring the complete release doesn't occur until 56 minutes after consumption.

The capsules' low moisture content further enhances the live bacteria's stability, which means it only releases in the small intestine, where conditions are ideal for growing and replicating.

We prefer acidophilus capsules because capsules preserve the delicate 'live' bacteria. On the other hand, acidophilus tablets are compressed into moulds, which create heat and compromise viability.

Supplementing with acidophilus only works if the bacteria are kept active in a state of 'suspended animation' in other words, they're still viable after swallowing. So we've designed an advanced, high-density, moisture-resistant pot to protect our capsules from moisture and light, which keeps the live bacteria viable in their packaging. That's why we can confidently guarantee a 24-month shelf life.

To ensure our strict quality standards are always met, we manufacture and package our formula in UK factories working to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

Frequently Asked Questions (2)
Q - "What Is The Difference Between Live Cultures Found In Yoghurt And Supplements?"
Live cultures found in yoghurt and supplements differ enormously. Live cultures found in yoghurt have a short shelf life and they’re also tremendously fragile. And so, by the time the yoghurt reaches your bowel, it’s highly likely the live cultures won’t survive the journey to where they’re needed, your gut. Live culture supplements, on the other hand, tend to be encapsulated in sophisticated, moisture-resistant packaging that ensures the bacteria remains active as they traverse down to your digestive tract.
Q - "How Many Acidophilus Capsules Should I Take?"
A - 1-2 capsules daily. Take with a glass of water, ideally first thing in the morning when the pH of the stomach is at its highest (i.e., not so acidic). Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Do not swallow capsules with hot drinks, as heat kills bacteria. Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

"I feel a distinct improvement"
By Anonymous , 09 Apr 2022
Verified Purchase
I have been eating live yogurt for some time but I think these acidophilus capsules are more effective. I have been taking them for a few weeks now and I have noticed a distinct improvement in my digestion. I keep the pot in the fridge and take the capsules with cold water first thing in the morning as instructed. Everyone is different but these capsules have helped me. I did have quite bad bowel problems and now they are improving. I shall certainly keep buying this product and do suggest others to try it.

"Seems sensible to be aware of bad bacteria."
By Ann Mc Geachie , 26 Mar 2022
Verified Purchase
As a 73 year old I try to have a good diet of home prepared food so consider is sensible to add good bacteia to our diet. We have no problems so dont know if it is helping but seems a good idea to help keep a good bacteria level but we only take one capsule a day.
