Facts About Acidophilus Bifidus Probiotic Blend

Acidophilus Bifidus is a probiotic blend that is a mixture of the popular L. acidophilus probiotics and bifidus microflora. But why on earth would we want to mix two types of probiotics together?

Acidophillus Strains and Bifidus Strains Work Together

It’s natural to us that different people have different jobs. Likewise, in nature, different types of probiotics have different functions. Because of the complementary roles that they play, we should ideally have 5% acidophillus (Lactobacillus Acidophillus) and 90% Bifidus (Bifidobacteria). The remaining 5% is neutral or pathogenic bacteria (which is okay when it’s only at 5%). But what do each of the different probiotic bacteria do?

How Do Acidophilus Microflora Benefit Us?

Acidophillus primarily lowers the pH of the intestines, making your body inhospitable for bad bacteria. There are more than 127 health benefits of taking probiotics, and there are many Acidophillius benefits.

How Do Bifidus Probiotics Benefit Us?

Bifidobacteria are especially important for consistent bowel movements, keeping pathogens out of the blood stream and processing our waste. Additionally, they also manufacture B-vitamins and combat antibiotic side effects. At birth, infants primarily have bifidobacterium in their colons and a lack of colonization from this bacteria can increase susceptibility to rotavirus, e coli. and other bacteria.

Which Supplements Contain An Bifidus Acidophilus Blend?

Here are my two favorite probiotics with an Acidophilus Bifidus blend. I have tried both of these personally, and I can confirm they work great.

    Hi: I had open heart surgery almost a year ago and the daughter that I am staying with said I should not restart my probiotics because of my weakened health. I have found that this chewable is very good at helping me have consistant good bowel movements. I am 74 years old and basically healthy but still healing from my surgery.

      First, I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. But I would say that something that is helping keep you regular is good for the whole body.

      And it has been a year since the surgery, so maybe take a small dose for a little while? Say 20% of what you might normally take? See how your body reacts. You can also talk with your doctor since probiotics have substantial research showing their efficacy in people 60+ years old!

      Don’t let anyone fool you of the efficacy of probiotics…there is 100+ years of research behind them.

      Good luck! I look forward to having as good of health as you do when I am 74!
