Kirkman’s Acidophilus Probiotic Powder includes six strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics. This reformulated product includes the addition of a significant amount of inulin from chicory root. Inulin is an effective prebiotic that gives the probiotic a significant substrate to attach to in the intestinal tract resulting in improved colonization.
Taking acidophilus increases the friendly bacterial flora that live in the intestines. This friendly flora is important to keep a balance of healthy flora in the gastrointestinal system.
Kirkman’s Acidophilus Probiotic Powder can be useful in many situations such as: • supporting the body’s natural defenses and the gastrointestinal tract’s immune system; • helping to alleviate occasional diarrhea & constipation; • addressing lactose metabolism issues; • assisting with regulating intestinal mobility and normal bowel function; • helping to create an inhibitory effect on free radical activity in the colon. Acidophilus is a general name for a group of probiotics that contains one or more of the following friendly bacteria that aid the digestive tract: • Lactobacillus acidophilus (A); • Lactobacillus casei (C); • Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus (L); • Bifidobacterium species (B); • Streptococcus salivarius subsp. Thermophiles.
Each 1⁄2 teaspoon (2.5 gm) of this product delivers 14 billion colony forming units of beneficial bacteria. The powder can be mixed in food or drink as long as the temperature of the food or beverage does not exceed 70 degrees F.
