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?
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?
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.
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.
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.
