  • 8 billion probiotic bacteria
  • Restores proper work of the digestive system
  • Enhances immunity of the body
  • Rebuilds bacterial gut flora
  • Is a part of antitumor prevention
  • Helps to rebuild gut and limits allergic reaction
  • Stimulates natural production of antibiotics and vitamins
  • Helpful in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Now Foods 8 Billion Acidophilus & Bifidus is a dietary supplement that contains 8 billion bacteria in one capsule, which helps to rebuild gut flora, essential to achieve healthy body . This professionally designed probiotic formula is a combination of three extremely effective bacteria strains, which are able to intestinal colonization.

Healthy gut flora (bacterial) is fundamental for proper work of the immune system, good health and longevity.

Lactobacillus acidophilus – lactic acid bacteria from the Lactobacillus family. It occurs in milk products especially in yoghurts, has positive impact on the human body by colonization of gastrointestinal wall.

Also, it creates so called health gut flora (bacterial) which is a natural barrier and competition in nutrients gain by harmful pathogens and microorganisms.

It supports the immune system by IgA antibodies stimulation, also is able to produce natural antibiotics such as lactocidin, acidophilin. It is especially important in creation of antibacterial barrier against to Staphylococcus aureus, salmonella, escherichia coli and antifungal against candidiasis.

This bacteria is classified as probiotic, which means that this selected bacteria is administrated orally, it has positive effect on the human body, thanks to immunomodulatory properties which rebuilds physiological flora, and the synthesis some of essential substances and vitamins as well. It takes part in niacin synthesis, folic acid and vitamin B6, supports digestion by lactose conversion in lactic acid, in the process – so called “milk fermentation”.

Bifidobacterium lactis – rod-shaped probiotic bacteria in large intestine. Identified in human milk which supports growth of this strain in child’s intestine. It enhances its immune system and builds gut flora ensuring proper composition and proportion. Bacteria protects organism against germs causing diseases, helps to maintain a proper level of B-group vitamins and vitamin K2, has ability to support interleukin 10 production which has anti-inflammatory properties.

It supports epithelial cells in digestive track in mucins production which is a part of protective mucus layer. A research has shown that, this type of bacteria is especially efficient to combat an illness called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which has symptoms like abdominal pain and constipation. The connections were noticed, between the presence of this bacteria and preventing cancer.

Bifidobacterium longum – considered as one of the most important probiotic bacteria in the human body. As an ingredient of human milk, it takes part in a proper child’s development. It reduces inflammations in the human body and reduces cortisol level – catabolic hormone which is released as a response to stress, often above the average in people who suffers on depression. It has an ability to produce B-group vitamins, digestive enzymes, casein phosphatase and lysozyme – a hydrolytic enzyme which is one of the mechanisms of the immune system. A clinic research has suggested that, this bacteria strain clearly lowers frequency of gastrointestinal disorders (nausea, constipation, diarrhea). Also, it helps in proper functioning of the digestive track.

To sum up, Now Foods 8 Billion Acidophilus & Bifidus is a preparation designed for health prevention. It contains beneficial effects on health, properly selected probiotic bacteria strains, especially for those who struggles with digestive disorders or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), for people with weak resistance of the organism and after antibiotic treatment. It might be helpful in the case people with allergy, suffering on tooth decay and as a part of antitumor prevention.

Lactobacillus acidophilus


What is Lactobacillus acidophilus?

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a strain of rod-shaped bacteria with the ability to produce lactic acid which is beneficial to our health. These bacteria reside mainly in the intestinal mucosa. Like other probiotic strains, it can easily survive adverse conditions prevailing in specific sections of the digestive tract. As a result, it passes through the small intestine after oral administration and adheres to epithelial cells, forming small colonies. What is more, the strain was detected in the vagina, cervix and urethra. Owing to that, they can combat numerous diseases and maintain a healthy digestive and genitourinary system by competing with pathogenic microorganisms.

Apart from lactic acid production, the bacteria strain can synthesise also other organic acids which have the ability to inhibit the adhesion and proliferation of such pathogens as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Candida albicans, Shigella, Clostridium, Listeria and Helicobacter. By maintaining the normal pH in the intestines, it promotes the digestion of food and absorption of micro- and macronutrients.

It has been reported that this strain is capable of synthesising vitamin K. Consequently, it supports proper blood clotting and has a positive impact on bone structure.

By synthesising lactase, it can also promote lactose digestion, whereby treating unpleasant digestive ailments after consuming dairy products. It uses many bacteriocins for fighting pathogens, such as acidolin, acidophilin, lactobacillin, lactocin and many more. 

It is applied in medicine in the treatment of food poisoning, improving the body’s immunity and treating illnesses with antibiotics. It is a component of many prebiotic, probiotic and functional formulas and various nutritional supplements available at

Bifidobacterium lactis


What is Bifidobacterium lactis?

Bifidobacterium lactis is a strain of probiotic bacteria capable of producing lactic acid which are classifed as gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria. They populate naturally the end part of the ileum and large intestine. Their main function is to compete for nutrients and adhesion sites with pathogenic bacteria. Their properties can be thus desribed as antidiarrhoeal, regenerating the intestinal mucosa, helping the body take in more micronutrients and regulating intestinal peristalsis. 

This bacteria strain has also the ability to produce lactic acid from lactose or other substances which will hinder indirectly (by acidifying the environment) or directly (by killing bacteria) the growth and survival of such pathogenic bacteria as Salmonella or Helicobacter pylori.

The supplementation with probiotic strains helps restore healthy intestinal microflora which is nowadays disrupted by many negative environmental factors. 

Bifidobacterium longum


What is Bifidobacterium longum?

Bifidobacterium longum is one of the most understood strains of probiotic bacteria naturally populating the human body. Like other bacteria of this kind, it promotes the digestion of lactose and other nutrients. Consequently, it helps absorb properly vitamins and nutrients in specific parts of the digestive tract.

Bifidobacterium longum supports the functioning of the immune system and inhibits the development of pathogens, in particular residing in the female vagina, by synthesising lactic acid, lysozyme and other acidic substances.  It contributes to reducing inflammations and lowers cortisol levels. It has also the ability to produce B vitamins.

It is used in medicine in treating disorders of gastrointestinal disorders, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea. Due to the presence of this health-promoting strain in breast milk, the supplementation is recommended for gaining the best advantages to child development and health.

This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at
