Solgar Advanced 40+ Acidophilus is a non dairy probiotic and is specifically for adults aged 40+.
It is specially formulated to protect the capsule contents from stomach acid and deliver it to the small intestine.
There are over 400 species of bacteria living in our digestive tracts. Most of these are 'friendly' bacteria which have a mutually beneficial relationship with us, their hosts. However, the gut is also home to some pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria which, given the right conditions, can proliferate causing the delicate environment of the gut to be disrupted. The results can be digestive disturbances such as bloating, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea.
Friendly bacteria feed on fibre and in doing so produce various organic acids that can alter the acidity level of the intestines, therefore controlling the spread of pathogenic bacteria. They also manufacture certain vitamins and aid the digestion of our food, i.e. lactose in milk products. It is, therefore, very important to ensure that the balance of intestinal bacteria is in favour of the 'friendly' strains, which can be achieved by eating an appropriate diet (high fibre and low sugar) and supplementing with probiotics.

- Stomach upsets (diarrhoea)
