Product Information

Acidophilus Extra 10 Billion is one of the most sophisticated live bacteria products sold in the UK. We often recommend this high-strength formula to people balancing busy lifestyles or those concerned about water or dietary changes when visiting holiday destinations.

Each of our acidophilus capsules contains 10 billion live bacteria, originally isolated from humans and far more at home in our digestive system than the live bacteria in yoghurt.

To protect these acid-sensitive bacteria from the low pH of the stomach, we've encapsulated Acidophilus Extra 10 Billion in delay-release capsules. These unique properties slow the capsules from opening, ensuring the complete release doesn't start until approximately 56 minutes after swallowing.

The casings' low moisture content further enhances stability, which means the live bacteria are released into the small intestine, where conditions are ideal for replicating and growing.

At Nature's Best, we prefer acidophilus capsules to acidophilus tablets. Unlike tablet equivalents compressed into moulds, creating heat and compromising viability capsules preserve the delicate 'live' bacteria.

Acidophilus capsules only work if the bacteria are kept alive in a state of 'suspended animation' so they're still viable after swallowing. We use an advanced process to ensure the bacteria remain active in their packaging: we've designed a sophisticated, high-density, moisture-resistant tube to protect the capsules from light and moisture, which keeps the bacteria viable. This sharp attention to detail means we can guarantee a 24-month shelf life.

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

"Effeting"

I only have to take two or three weeks of one a day to feel a big difference where my bowel is more regular, and if I stop taking them I go back to be bound up again, so they are very effective and worth every penny.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We base all of the doses on nutrients in our products on doses used in clinical literature, showing both efficacy and suitability for long term use. Each capsule provides two different strains of bacteria which are known to be able to colonise the human digestive system and are thought to help maintain good digestive health. These are Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum and both of these strains have been widely used in clinical trials. There are products out there that contain higher amounts of bacteria and multiple strains of bacteria. However, these are often strains with no studies to back them up.
