  • 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.

"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.

"Great product."
By , 25 Apr 2018
I was recommended to use a high dose of acidophilus after suffering bouts of IBS type symptoms, after seeing a kinesiologist. I took the highest dose to begin with and my symptoms abated quite quickly. I now use the lower dose faily as a maintenance programme and very rarely have an episode of bloating or diarrhoea anymore. Even when I go on holiday I am not subject to the upsetting symptoms often brought about by s change of water and food. Do goid to be able to go out and about, without having to check where the toilet is all the time. Recommend these.
