Blackmores Acidophilus Bifidus provides lactic acid bacteria (L. acidophilus and B. animalis) which helps to:

- balance healthy gut flora
- reduce the risk of diarrhoea via stabilisation of healthy gut flora

Features and benefits

  • Acid tolerant (enabling the microorganisms to survive the acid environment of the stomach and colonise the bowel)
  • Comes from a special human strain which provides easier adhesion to the bowel wall and more effective colonisation
  • Freeze-dried and encapsulated (protecting bacteria from heat, light, moisture and oxygen)
  • Capsule can be opened for easy dispensing to children or infants
  • Suitable for use during pregnancy
