Lactobacillus Acidophilus Vitamin Remedy

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a friendly strain of bacteria used to make yogurt and cheese. Although we are born without it, acidophilus soon establishes itself in our intestines and helps prevent intestinal infections. Acidophilus also flourishes in the vagina, where it protects women against yeast infections. Acidophilus is one of several microbes known collectively as probiotics, literally, 'pro life,' indicating that they are bacteria and yeasts that help rather than harm.
