What Is It?
This formula provides 2.25 billion CFU naturally occurring, dairy-free beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis to support gastrointestinal and immune health.
Uses For Probiotic 123 (dairy free)
G.I. Health: Animal and human studies have indicated that L. acidophilus supports the mucosal lining of the G.I. tract, helping to maintain healthy G.I. barrier function. Several trials involving children have also revealed that mixed probiotic bacteria supplementation helps support healthy yeast balance and G.I. comfort. Another study involving almost 200 children suggested that a probiotic supplement containing bifidobacteria provided support for occasional diarrhea.
Immune Health: Research indicates that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. Additionally, they support healthy cytokine production, particularly in the colon. One placebo-controlled 2-month study involving 27 infants indicated that probiotic supplementation promoted healthy serum CD4 levels and skin comfort.
What Is The Source?
Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14 strain), Bifidobacterium bifidum (Bb-06 strain), and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04 strain) are dairy-free and soy-free strains. Pure Encapsulations probiotic products contain a unique form of rice starch produced through a natural enzymatic process. This proprietary starch has been extensively tested and is added to protect the viability of the probiotic organisms.

By Christine Rivers from Duxbury, Vermont on March 19, 2011
This probiotic is superior in quality to others that we have tried. My local naturopath recommended this one in particular due to the independent testing it had undergone and that the bacteria were very much alive compared to some that are inactive upon arrival. I advise folks to pay the extra few dollars to have it shipped with ice packs to ensure that the package doesn't get too warm, thus killing the product. We use this daily for our newborn (mixed into a breastmilk bottle), as we did for our first child who had acid reflux. The implementation of this probiotic substantially helps the digestion of infants and their immunity. It's great for children and adults, especially after the use of antibiotics for infections as it introduces new "good" bacteria to the system and GI tract which have been killed off with the antibiotics.
Pros:I like that it's a powder and that it contains multiple types of probiotics.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
