Lactobacillus acidophilus is a well researched, colonizing microorganism in the small intestine. It is very acid-resistant and bile tolerant. When taken regularly, L. acidophilus colonizes the intestinal mucosa and the lining of the vagina, cervix, and urethra where it produces lactic and other organic acids inhibiting the adherence and multiplication of pathogenic microbes. It antagonizes an array of pathogens including Escherichia coli (E. coli, the cause of –Montezuma's Revenge"), Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella (common causes of food poisoning), Candida albicans (yeast infections and syndromes), and other pathogens such as Shigella, Clostridium, Listeria, and Helicobacter species. L. acidophilus produces lactase and aids in the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Klaire's SCD-compliant L. acidophilus formula uses the same ATCC certified strain found in our blended, multispecies probiotic formulations. This hardy microorganism is provided in a base of purified plant cellulose in a potency of 3+ billion CFUs per capsule, making it suitable for people adhering to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet program who wish to use this important probiotic in support of intestinal health.
