Acidophilus

Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the most common types of probiotics and can be found in fermented foods, yogurt and supplements.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of bacteria found in your intestines.

It’s a member of the Lactobacillus genus of bacteria, and it plays an important role in human health.

Its name gives an indication of what it produces — lactic acid. It does this by producing an enzyme called lactase. Lactase breaks down lactose, a sugar found in milk, into lactic acid.

Benefits

Cholesterol - L. acidophilus consumed on its own, in milk or yogurt or in combination with prebiotics may help lower cholesterol.
Diarrhoea - When consumed in combination with other probiotics, L. acidophilus may help prevent and treat diarrhoea.
IBS - L. acidophilus probiotics may improve symptoms of IBS, such as abdominal pain and bloating.
Vaginal Infections - L. acidophilus as a probiotic supplement may be useful in preventing vaginal disorders, such as vaginosis and vulvovaginal candidiasis.
Weight Loss - Probiotics may be effective for weight loss, but more research is needed to determine whether L. acidophilus, in particular, has a significant effect on weight in humans.
Cold and Flu - L. acidophilus on its own and in combination with other probiotics may reduce cold symptoms, especially in children.
Allergy Symptoms - L. acidophilus probiotics can reduce the symptoms of certain allergies.
Eczema - Some studies have shown that L. acidophilus probiotics can help reduce the prevalence and symptoms of eczema, while other studies show no benefit.
Gut Health - L. acidophilus can support gut health by increasing the amounts of healthy bacteria in the intestines
