Lactobacillus Acidophilus

Also referenced as: Bifidobacterium spp., Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus species (spp.), Probiotics


Lactobacillus Acidophilus
is a living anaerobic microorganism classified as a Probiotic. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that positively alter the balance of intestinal microflora and are often referred to as colonic foods. These facultative anaerobes account for up to ten percent of the entire bacterial population in the intestinal tract. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is also found within the inner linings of the mouth and vagina. It enhances digestion and is involved in the production of acids, which make certain foods taste sour.


The use of Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium species, and yeasts dates back to the time of Biblical writings. Probiotic use has also been documented in many other sacred works of religion, all of which differ from Christianity. The health-enhancing properties of these microorganisms were made known long before the many discoveries recognized by the modern sciences included within microbiology. The popularity of probiotics continues today in nutritional supplements and many functional foods, hence its inclusion in yogurt and other dairy products.


Recent study points to the beneficial properties of Probiotics like Lactobacillus Acidophilus. These microorganisms have been shown to benefit digestion, immunological functioning, and to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the body. [1] This results from the breakdown of foods by Lactobacillus Acidophilus. The digestive processes of Lactobacillus Acidophilus effect the production of byproducts, such as lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which ultimately alter the gastrointestinal environment and discourage “bad” organisms from forming within our body.


*Probiotics differ from Prebiotics. The term Prebiotics refers to the soluble fiber that is found in a variety of food sources, which supports the production and development of probiotics within the GI (gastrointestinal) tract.*
