Acidophilus (Lactobacillus acidophilus) Overview
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a member of the Lactobacillus genus of bacteria. These bacteria can be found in the mouth, intestine, and vagina. L. acidophilus colonizes most densely in the small intestines, where it helps maintain the intestinal wall healthy and supports overall digestive function.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus Uses and Benefits
The Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) has not approved L. acidophilus for any medical use. However, research has found it to be effective and health practitioners may recommend the supplement for a variety of uses:
- Relieves gas & bloating
- Supports nutrient absorption
- Improves lactose intolerance

Dosage suggestions and usage
Start with one adult scoop (0.8 gram, 200 billion cfu’s) of L. Acidophilus probiotic powder first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (30 minutes prior to eating). Dissolve the powder in a glass of de-chlorinated water and drink it. Do this ONCE a day only. Stay at this dosage for about 3-5 days.
If you are not happy with the results, raise the dosage to two scoops a day, one in the morning and one at bedtime. After one week go to three scoops a day if you still are not getting the expected results. The highest dosage we recommend is four adult scoops a day. You can always lower the dosage or stop taking probiotics for a few days. You may aslo visit our Dosage Suggestions section to more info.
How long will a 50 gram or a 100 gram powder last me?

If you take one adult scoop a day 50 grams will last 2 months while 100 grams will last 4 months.
