BioBeads Probiotic Acidophilus Overview
Source Naturals BioBeads Probiotic Acidophilus is a very well-made multi-species probiotic formula would be a great choice for new or current users of probiotics. Probiotics can benefit digestive and immune health, and there's even growing evidence of a link between obesity and gut bacteria. So probiotics supplements have become popular and are only going to become more so.
For a probiotic product to be effective, the bacteria have to protected from stomach acids, making the type of capsule or delivery system just as important as the quality and quantity of the probiotic bacteria inside. 'Enteric-coated' capsules are usually used to solve this problem, but there are lots of ways to produce what brands can call an 'enteric-coated' capsule, and some methods are better than others. It's great to have a multi-species probiotic blend with billions of organisms, but if they don't survive passage through the stomach, they're not going to do anything for you.
That's why nutritionists and naturopaths don't recommend probiotics based on organism count, their foremost concern is to use the most-foolproof enteric-encapsulation methods, such as the expensive and patented enteric beadlet technology in Source Naturals BioBeads Probiotic Acidophilus. These small, concentrated enteric-coated beadlets are both effective and super-easy to swallow for kids or adults.
