Lactobacillus acidophilus, l. acidophilus or simply Acidophilus refers to a species of bacteria that ferment sugars into lactic acid within the digestive system and is thought to have probiotic characteristics.

Acidophilus is naturally found in the stomach/intestines, those who may have an abnormal amount of the bacteria (generally those who have been on antibiotics) may experience symptoms such as diarrhoea because of this. Certain products that use the strain may help to restore the natural balance of the intestinal bacteria to alleviate symptoms such as these.

Digestive health is a commonly overlooked aspect of our health and wellness and certain products such as enzymes and probiotics may be well worth consideration.

Lactose Intolerance and L. acidophilus
Certain fermented diary products use l. acidophilus including various types of cheese and yoghurts due to the potential ability of some strains showing promise to make the digestion easier for those with a lactose intolerance.

Looking After Your Digestive Health
We are what we absorb, so it follows that when we eat food and it isn’t digested properly we don’t get the full benefits of the nutrients of the food.

By having balanced intestinal flora, this promotes healthy digestion and contributes to a healthy immune function.

Other things to consider may include:

Eating plenty of fibre, this helps to keep food moving through the digestive tract and reduces the chances of constipation in addition to helping to reduce the chance of getting various digestive health conditions.

Drinking plenty of water can also help, by being well hydrated this not only helps our general health but it assists in dissolving fats and allowing food to flow efficiently through our digestive system.

Those Who Digestive Health Products May Be Suitable For
– Travellers wary of the hygiene and water of the exotic countries they may be visiting
– Those with persistent bowel discomfort
– Those looking to correct and maintain their balance of ‘friendly’ bacteria
– Those with bloating issues and/or wind
– Those who have been on antibiotics
– Those with lethargy
