Product Information

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.

Delayed release capsules - To protect these acid sensitive bacteria from the low pH of the stomach, there is a sophisticated, but vitally important process. The unique delayed release properties built into the capsule shell slow the capsule from opening, so that complete release does not start until approximately 45 minutes after swallowing. Their low moisture content further enhances stability so that the live bacteria are released into the small intestine where conditions are ideal for them to replicate and grow.
Daily Intake
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 recommended daily dose. Do not swallow capsules with hot drinks, as heat kills bacteria. Do not exceed recommended daily dose.
Food supplements should not replace a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

During the recent lockdown I had been experiencing stomach problems and a friend recommended I take an Acidophilus and as I had taken a course of the Extra 10 and felt the benefits I started taking Extra 4 daily but unfortunately this caused severe problems and I had to stop taking them
