These are 100 capsules of Probiotic 10 which contains a blend of 10 billion live cultures of lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus bifidus, and lactobacillus rhamnosus for every serving of 4 capsules. Lactobacillus is the most commonly used strain in probiotic supplements.
Probiotics help maintain healthy intestinal flora, which help digest foods and extract nutrients. Probiotics have been shown to improve immunity (as most of the immune system is located in the gut); improve symptoms of Irritable Bowl Disorder and constipation; and reduce yeast infections. One study found that a 2-strain probiotic, including L. acidophilus, twice a day for 3 months reduced symptoms of the common cold and school absenteeism in school children (Leyer, 2009).*
