There are more bacterial organisms in the intestinal tract than there are cells in the human body. The sole purpose of “good” bacteria is to destroy “bad” bacteria, parasites and viruses. An imbalance can occur from exposure to foreign bacteria during travel, certain types of food, pollution, excess alcohol or stress, birth control pills or antibiotic use. Antibiotic use is particularly destructive as it destroys both harmful and healthy bacteria.
Organika’s Active Acidophilus® contains 4.6 billion active acidophilus cells. This lactobacillus acidophilus is indigenous to the human lower intestines, ensuring it can adapt to and remain on the surfaces of the intestinal tract in order to reproduce. The strains found in many dairy acidophilus products are not as stable to colonize in the human body. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is one of the prominent strains of bacteria, found naturally in the mouth, small and large intestines.
Organika’s Active Acidophilus is heat stable; this is the most important aspect to ensure its viability in the intestinal tract. It means that it does not need to be refrigerated nor do temperatures affect the live cells. A vacuum freeze-dried process performed on the living cells maintains this incredible stability.
