Superior probiotic with the added benefits of Lithothamnion Red Algae and AquaSource Organic Algae Superfood*
Our unique Acidophilus strain helps promote a healthy gastrointestinal system and maintain an essential balance of intestinal flora, to maintain good digestion and improve the absorption of nutrients from foods.
Lithothamnion Red Algae and AquaSource Organic Algae Superfood* are added to provide a wide range of nutrients, including antioxidants, betacarotene and chlorophyll.
Probiotics are healthy bacteria that have long been known as a supplement to the natural bacteria needed to promote proper digestion. One strain that has proven to have a much better ability to colonise the gut for sustained periods with regular use and provide more essential health benefits was discovered by Dr. Khem Shahani, a professor of food science at the University of Nebraska. This strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus, known as DDS-1, has been shown to survive stomach acidity, resist bile salts, and grow well in the gut. This is the strain used in AquaSource Acidophilus.

Supports gut health.
- Promotes General Intestinal Health - Changes in bowel microbial balance may occur as a result of diet, illness, certain treatments, and poor bowel health. AquaSource Acidophilus helps promote general intestinal health by introducing desirable bacteria into the gut that can be sustained with regular use.
- AquaSource Acidophilus provides - calcium naturally, vitamins C, B12, B5 and iron while helping to maintain already healthy cholesterol levels when taken as a daily supplement.
- Lactose Intolerance Support - Our acidophilus produces more lactic acid than comparable strains of L. acidophilus. It also produces more beta-galactosidase. Since people with lactose intolerance lack sufficient levels of this enzyme, it can be a helpful way to augment lactase deficiency.
- Supports Gut Health - Changes in bowel microbial balance may occur as a result of diet, certain treatments, illness or poor bowel health. Though the resident intestinal microflora acquired at birth is usually somewhat permanent in creating a defence against undesirable bacteria, when homeostasis is disrupted, gastrointestinal health may be negatively affected. Regular use of probiotics such as AquaSource Acidophilus, helps support gut health by contributing to the maintenance of good bacteria in the intestine.
