Active Acidophilus-20™ supplement is a 2-strain probiotic blend of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus lactis offered in a unique shelf-stable capsule. Each vegetarian capsule contains at least 20 billion viable microorganisms (average per capsule based on testing of 2 lots at 12 months) intended to provide nutritive support for the establishment and maintenance of favorable intestinal flora.
Probiotics are living microorganisms that help maintain the natural balance of microflora in the intestines. The normal human digestive tract naturally contains about 400 types of these beneficial bacteria that help reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and help support healthy digestive and immune system function. The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, which are also used in foods such as yogurt, cottage cheese, sauerkraut and fermented soy products.
A study done on healthy elderly volunteers suggests that probiotics can maintain in the intestines well beyond the testing period. A large population of these “good” bacteria can help keep “bad” bacteria, yeast and other compromising microbes from overpopulating the intestines.

The L. acidophilus La-14 strain may contain less than 1% lactose residual from the original fermentation medium, but no dairy-derived components were used in any post-fermentation ingredients.
The B. lactis Bl-04 strain does not contain any dairy-derived components, neither from the fermentation medium nor the post-fermentation ingredients.
The product is shelf stable up to 23°C (74°F) for one year, and its shelf life may be extended by refrigeration.
Structure/Function: Microorganisms exert a beneficial effect on the digestive system. They are known to produce digestive enzymes and certain vitamins, support enzymatic activity, and help to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of metabolic function.
Take 1 capsule daily with a meal or glass of water. Do not take within 2 hours of antibiotics.
