Nature's Sunshine L. Acidophilus is a strain of Lactobacillus, a symbiotic, homo-fermentative, lactic acid-producing microorganism. Friendly bacteria help keep in check other microbes that produce toxins that may be absorbed into the bloodstream. As long as all of these different species work in harmony, dangerous types are kept in small enough numbers that they, too, are often beneficial! This illustrates one of nature’s ironies: what is harmful in one amount may actually be healthful in another amount.
Acidophilus and all other helpful bacteria are often destroyed by antibiotics. Supplementation can reintroduce them, creating an optimal balance. Each capsule contains a minimum of 100 million organisms, freeze-dried to maintain viability. Probiotics are well absorbed in the diet and can be taken between meals to maximize absorption. Best if stored in a freezer or refrigerator.
Helps regulate the intestinal tract.
Supports the digestive, immune and intestinal systems. Promotes healthy bacteria colonies in the gut.
Take 1–2 capsules daily with a meal.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics 12 Original Formula.
Dr. Ohhira Probiotics is the world's most popular premium probiotic supplement! It has won numerous International Supplement Awards, including Best Supplement Award, by Better Nutrition Magazine for four years running.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics is a truly unique probiotic for these reasons: 1) it contains 12 synergistic strains of probiotics and 2) Dr. Ohhira has developed a growth/production process that requires from 3 to 5 years of fermentation. This extended fermentation process enables the strains of bacteria to grow and proliferate, and also results in the production of substantial metabolic byproducts such as organic acids, short-chain fatty acids, various vitamins, amino acids and other accessory nutrients. These are all of the beneficial compounds that are normally produced by probiotics in the GI tract. With Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics, you get the 12 strains of probiotics plus all these other beneficial compounds.

Nature's Sunshine Probiotic Eleven is a unique combination of healthful probiotics to help maintain and replenish intestinal supply. These microorganisms perform essential functions in the body and are affected by aging, adverse intestinal pH, microbial interactions, environmental and dietary temperatures, stress, physiological factors, peristalsis, bile acids, host secretions and immune responses.
Probiotic Eleven provides 11 species of live microorganisms that exert many beneficial health effects. Among other things, they support digestion, promote immunity and aid in the elimination of toxins. Probiotics also help regulate intestinal functions and can greatly support colon function. This specially formulated blend contains strains of important gut-beneficial organisms and prebiotics (non-digestible foodstuffs, including fiber) that serve as food for the probiotics in the colon. Clinical studies have shown that short- and long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) may improve growth of friendly microorganisms, enhance mineral absorption, support bowel health and function, and promote immune function.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, L. acidophilus, L. brevis, L. bulgaricus, L. plantarum, Streptococcus thermophilus, B. infantis, B. longum, L. casei, L. salivarius and FOS (short- and long-chain).
Take 1–2 capsules daily with a meal. Keep refrigerated or frozen.
Jarro-Dophilus EPS® is a Stable-Dophilus® probiotic due to its stability at room temperature and enteric coating, which protects the probiotic bacteria from stomach acid. Eight (8) different strains of probiotic bacteria are delivered directly into the small intestines where probiotic bacteria fully exert their beneficial effects.* Probiotic bacteria in Jarro-Dophilus EPS® are selected from the following 4 genera:
Lactobacillus, Bifidobacteria, Lactococcus and Pediococcus.
Strains in Jarro-Dophilus EPS® promote healthy intestinal microflora, which in turn helps to support intestinal health and immune function.*Bifidobacteria Iongum BB536 has been clinically shown to stimulate immune response and promote healthy intestinal microfloral balance.*L. rhamnosus R0011 is a unique, high producer of polysaccharides that facilitate colonization and stimulate intestinal immune response.*L. helveticus R0052 assists in breaking down lactose (milk sugar), which may improve digestion of dairy products by those individuals who are lactose intolerant.* Lactococcus and Pediococcus help reduce spoilage caused by unfriendly bacteria in fermented foods.
