Acidophilus Emergency is an ultrahigh-dose probiotic, containing 50 billion CFU per capsule. Given that enteric coating ensures a five-fold greater colonization rate in the gut, this enteric-coated probiotic from Vitazan Professional is equivalent to 250 billion CFU of a non–enteric‑coated probiotic. As an ultrahigh-dose product, Acidophilus Emergency is appropriate for use in more severe conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, lactose intolerance, antibiotic associated diarrhea (AAD), and other acute diarrhea.
In particular, Acidophilus Emergency is appropriate for ongoing use in patients with IBD in remission; studies have shown that probiotic supplementation among IBD patients can help extend periods of remission, reducing periods of flare. Caution is recommended for use in patients with the presence of intestinal bleeding, as there have been isolated cases reported of patients who have developed blood infections (sepsis) as a result of probiotics due to impaired gut barrier function in this situation. FOS is a prebiotic, or “food,” to support the growth of beneficial bacterial strains. Combined use of probiotics in addition to prebiotics has been shown to be superior to probiotics alone.
Adults, adolescents, and children ≥ 6 years old: Take 2 capsules daily with water or juice, or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
