Are you lactose intolerant? Do you take antibiotics on a regular basis?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may want to supplement your body with lactobacillus acidophilus.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is commonly found in the intestines and is considered as the friendly bacteria naturally living in human bodies to help regulate digestion and stool patterns.
However, there is also yeast that lives in the intestines. The lactobacilli acidophilus and the yeast are constantly competing for space in the intestines. What you want is to keep the yeast in check in order to prevent yeast infection in the vagina, and breast. It can also cause diarrhea and thrushes.
The friendly bacteria in the intestines, however, sometimes get depleted. This will result in the overgrowth of yeast and can cause the mentioned conditions. The depletion of lactobacillus acidophilus is mainly caused by taking too much antibiotics.
Therefore, it is very important for you to replenish your supply of lactobacillus acidophilus in your intestines.
There are usually available lactobacillus acidophilus supplements in your local grocery stores or pharmacy. An example comes in a form of powder.
The powder form is recommended for children and infants who are not yet old enough to swallow the pill form of this supplement.
This is usually mixed with milk or juice for children to drink. In infants, the powder is mixed with water or breast milk and rubbed around the baby’s mouth at least once a day. Or, 1 tablespoon of the powder can be mixed in milk bottles if the baby is still bottle feeding.
Taking this supplement will free you and your children from the conditions like diarrhea and thrush infections. It is recommended that you or your children should take it when the symptoms of the problems mentioned have begun to show.
Living a healthy life is not just about exercising and eating the right food. It is also about taking care of the insides of your body.
