  • Two of the most researched strains of live bacteria
  • For human health, not yoghurt making!
  • Independent study rates our live bacteria capsules one of the best
  • One of the few products that met its label claim.

This is our top selling live bacteria product. Each capsule contains 4 billion live bacteria. We use two carefully selected strains of live bacteria, both widely used in clinical studies, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium. More importantly the species of bacteria provided by this product are specially selected for use in human health, rather than for their ability to make tasty yoghurt! Each small capsule is equivalent to 8 pots of bio-yoghurt, without all the calories!

Nature’s Best was one of the first companies to supply live bacteria capsules in the UK (over 20 years ago), so we have developed an expertise in this area. As a result of this, an independent study found our live bacteria was one of the few tested that contained the species and the strength of bacteria claimed on the label. Live bacteria capsules only work if they are kept alive in a state of ‘suspended animation’ so that after swallowing they are still viable. Nature’s Best uses sophisticated processes to ensure that these bacteria remain alive whilst in their packaging.

Had IBS for a year and tried a liquid product that was more expensive but did begin to ease the problem. This product has however controlled the symptoms to a greater extent, is far easier to use especially if travelling and is much less expensive.Thank you.

"This product is a strong contender"

This product is essential in the modern nutritional armoury to supplement the poor quality of the modern diet. I take these because I am over 60 and cannot absorb as much from my general day to day diet.

"Not As Good As Expected"
By , 11 Jun 2018
I have been using a high street brand acidophilus and its been amazing, I decided to give these ones a try, as the reviews were great and they were supposed to be better.... Im on week two and there no where near as good as the others, so I'm back to the old ones, probably good for some but just not for me!

My 90y.o. granny was on antibiotic treatment. Using acidophilus was the best way to protect her stomach and guts.

"Has helped me cope with constapation"
By , 17 May 2018
After speaking to my doctor about problems with constipation, I was advised to eat more fruit and vegetables, an include more fibre in my diet. I already was doing this and still had problems. When I discovered Acidophilus I found that taking one capsule a day completely solved my problem. When travelling they can easily be taken along.
