Are these acidophilus supplements suitable for vegans?

Yes – those on a restricted diet will be reassured to learn that Holland & Barrett Ultra Maximum Acidophilus Capsules do not contain any animal products and are therefore suitable for both vegetarians and vegans to take as a dietary supplement.

What foods have acidophilus?

Acidophilus is found naturally in the human body in the mouth, gut and the vagina. 


It is also present in some foods. 


It is mainly found in fermented foods like sauerkraut, kombucha and miso. 


It is also added to some foods such as cheeses and yogurts. 


How much acidophilus should I take?

The bacteria in these acidophilus capsules are very concentrated so you only need to take one capsule a day, preferably with a meal.


Just make sure that you take them with water, rather than with a hot drink. 


Heat can kill bacteria and so you will not get the most benefits from them if you take them this way.


What is friendly bacteria?

Acidophilus is a type of friendly bacteria, which is naturally found in the vagina, mouth, stomach and intestines. 


Friendly bacteria help to restore the balance of bacteria in your gut following any disruption. 


Each type of friendly bacteria has a different effect on the body.


There are a huge 20 billion bacteria cultures in each one of these little acidophilus tablets. Hard to believe - but it’s true!
