The digestive process doesn't end when you chew and swallow your food. Once that food reaches your intestines‚ digestion involves a host of bacteria with varied roles to play. For example‚ your body requires prebiotics to nourish friendly bacteria in the digestive tract. Prebiotics are fibers that your body can't digest or absorb; instead‚ they're used as a source of food for bacteria. These indigestible substances encourage the growth of friendly bacteria—including Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum—that are essential to remaining healthy. You can obtain prebiotics from everyday foods‚ such as garlic‚ chicory‚ and onions. However‚ if you’re unable to eat large amounts of these foods on a daily basis (maybe you want to avoid bad breath?)‚ you can benefit from a supplement.
BioDophilus Caps by Biotics Research contains a prebiotic food‚ along with these essential friendly bacteria. Bifidobacterium bifidum and Lactobacillus acidophilus are able to get into your gut to create an environment unfavorable for the multiplication of harmful bacteria. As a result‚ they can help prevent uncomfortable conditions such as travelers' diarrhea‚ chronic constipation‚ and a bowel disorder called ulcerative colitis. This supplement may also facilitate lactose tolerance in some people.
The active ingredients in each capsule of Biotics Research’s BioDophilus are:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus‚ which ferments food-producing lactic acid and is lethal to harmful microorganisms in the intestinal tract.
- Bifidobacterium bifidum‚ which helps treat diarrhea and ulcerative colitis.
- Fructooligosaccharides‚ a food for friendly bacteria; these fibers selectively stimulate the growth of certain bacteria in the colon‚ improving your health.
One bottle of BioDophilus Caps should last for about 15 days when taken at the recommended dosage of two capsules daily. If you're taking antibiotics‚ ask your doctor about the right dosage for you before starting to take this supplement.
