What is acidophilus?

Acidophilus is a bacterium found in the mouth, intestine and vagina. It is used as probiotic, which is a good bacterium that is either the same or very similar to the bacteria that are already in your body.

What is acidophilus probiotic used for?

Acidophilus probiotic is commonly used to help treat digestive disorders and vaginal inflammation, as well as promote the growth of good bacteria.

Studies have shown that oral use of acidophilus may be effective in treating bacterial vaginosis, a type of vaginal inflammation.

Acidophilus can also be used to treat certain types of diarrhea. When taken with antibiotics, acidophilus might reduce diarrhea, bloating and cramps. It introduces good bacteria back into your digestive tract when the antibiotics may have destroyed the normal flora of the intestines in the normal course of fighting an infection.

Acidophilus can also reduce the occurrence of eczema (atopic dermatitis) in infants and young children when taken during pregnancy, by breastfeeding mothers and by infants, but it is important to check with your doctor before starting to acidophilus.

What are the side effects of acidophilus probiotic?

There are a few side effects associated with the acidophilus probiotic. The most common side effects include constipation, gas, bloating and increased thirst.

If you are lactose intolerant, be aware that some acidophilus products contain lactose, which can exacerbate the side effects and your condition.

Always consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplements including acidophilus. This is especially true if you have any health conditions or take any medications that may lower your immune system.

Allergic reactions to acidophilus are rare but symptoms include rash, itching/swelling, dizziness and trouble breathing. You should seek immediate medical attention for these symptoms.

How much acidophilus should I take?

You should take the amount recommended on your acidophilus product, as all products are made differently, unless your doctor says otherwise.

What is the difference between probiotics and acidophilus?

Probiotics, also known as "good bacteria," are living microorganisms similar to those that live in your intestinal tract, as well as several other places in your body. There are many different probiotics strains, each of which affect the body in different ways. Acidophilus is one particular strain of probiotic. The probiotic strain of acidophilus is commonly found in yogurt and other fermented foods.
