  • 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.

"For my health"
By , 06 Jan 2019
I was advised to use probiotics for continuing urine infections along with vitamin C. I had a bladder stretch in 2016 and was clear but in the last three months or so the problems have returned so I’m not sure what the probiotics are doing?

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

Acidophilus Extra 4 provides live friendly bacteria that are thought to help by ‘crowding out' harmful strains of bacteria in the gut. These may be of particular use if you have been taking antibiotics.

Cranberry is most widely studied for the effects it is thought to have on the prevention of UTIs. Evidence suggests that it may reduce the adherence of bacteria to the bladder walls. It is also thought to reduce the level of bacteria in the urine through the production of hippuric acid. Vitamin C is included in our Cranberry Powder preparation (product code 553) as it is known to support the normal function of the immune system. We recommend the full dose of 10g daily, mixed into cold water or juice if you have a current infection or have recently recovered from a UTI. It is a good idea to split this dose into a 5 g (one heaped teaspoon) dose twice a day, and I have attached the link below for you:

"Changed My Life!"
By , 20 Dec 2018
I have been suffering with stomach problems for a couple of years. Last summer I was out with a friend and discovered she has studied nutrition so told her my symptoms. Bloated stomach, wind, frequent trips to the toilet, white coating on my tongue. These all affected my confidence especially going out in an evening. My friend said I may have candida in my stomach and suggested a probiotic supplement. I have used Nature's Best products for years so looked to them for this supplement. For two months I started by taking the '10' and noticed a difference within a couple of weeks. After I had finished those I changed to the '4' which I am continuing to take. These probiotics have made a huge change to the way I am feeling and I would definitely recommend them.
Thank you Nature's Best!

"Really good"
By , 12 Nov 2018
For bloating and constipation - have found this helps both - had a problem taking it on a night as keeping me awake and had to stop for few days but then restarted it - tried another one but did not get the same result with less bloat and I feel I have lost a bit weight since taking it. Highly recommend for anyone sitting on the fence and love the face it is prebiotic free and now doesn''t have the added sugar in - please do not ever change this formula Nature''s Best!
