Prebiotic fibers aren’t to be confused with the probiotics that we’re trying to cultivate. Think of the probiotic as the bacteria we’re hoping will stick around, and the prebiotic as the incentive for those strains to stick around

It is the dawn of the era of the microbial ally, an age I’ve been trying to usher to the forefront since 2006.  No longer are people reacting to the thought of their own personal bacteria with aversion, rather, researchers and laymen alike are realizing those critters can be our friends—and the key to good health. In the nearly ten years that I’ve been relating the power of our internal bacteria, researchers continue to build a dynamic body of literature on

Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and today we're going to talk about the benefits of advanced Acidophilus by Solgar. So what is the strain Acidophilus? The term Acidophilus is used to describe a number of bacteria which help in human digestion. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is one of the bacteria found in these mixtures but the term Acidophilus usually refers to a combination of L. Acidophilus with other beneficial bacteria. Acidophilus is touted for its many health benefits, some of which
