Acidophilus Pearls

Acidophilus Pearls™ with patented True Delivery™ Technology protect the Lactobacilus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum from stomach acids, and guarantee delivery into the intestine, where they are released intact to increase healthy intestinal flora.

Unlike other enteric-coated products which offer no on-shelf protection (and only minimal protection against stomach acids), patented True Delivery Technology protects the microflora in Acidophilus Pearls from shelf conditions like air and light.

Studies show patented Acidophilus Pearls™ deliver up to 900% more intact microflora to the intestine in relation to label claim than 4 leading competitors, including those with enteric coatings.

Why use probiotics?
Probiotics support digestive, immune, and skin health:

  • Beneficial probiotics can help you get relief from occasional gas, loose stools, constipation, sensitive stomach and lactose intolerance.
  • Ensures your body is not weighed down by toxins which may limit your immune defenses.
  • Probiotics help support healthy skin from the inside out: they help manage and eliminate free radicals and toxins.

What is True Delivery™ Technology?
Doesn’t enteric coating provide enough protection for probiotics?

The term enteric means "related to the intestines." Enteric coatings are meant to keep the tablet from releasing the key ingredients until it enters the intestinal tract. Enteric coating is often used with ingredients that could irritate the stomach lining, such as garlic or volatile oils. While enteric coating works well for this application, it does not necessarily provide the optimal protection for delicate ingredients such as probiotics. While enteric coating keeps the ingredients in, it does not necessarily keep stomach acid out. Additionally, the process of enteric coating requires high temperatures which can also damage the fragile bacteria.

Acidophilus Pearls™ active cultures uses a revolutionary three layered "pearl" encapsulating process called True Delivery™ Technology. The innermost layer of each contains a combination of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum suspended in a protective oil mixture. The second layer seals the healthy bacteria in the capsule and protects them from air and moisture. The third, outermost layer is specially developed to dissolve only in the alkaline environment of the intestine where the beneficial bacteria are released live and intact.
Scientific studies have found this triple layer protects probiotic bacteria much more effectively than the single coat used on most supplements. In fact, comparison testing has found that the Acidophilus Pearls™ delivers up to 900% more beneficial bacteria to the intestines in comparison to other probiotic products – even those that use traditional enteric coatings.

Why does Acidophilus Pearls™ active cultures contain only 1 billion bacteria?
Some other probiotic supplements contain several billion.

General recommendations for probiotic bacteria are to take 1 billion daily. Other products need to use many times this amount because they lack a protective delivery system for the bacteria. In order to have even a few survive shelf-life and transit through the stomach they must start with many billions of bacteria. However, because Acidophilus Pearls™ uses a patented delivery system which protects the bacteria until they arrive in the intestines – and studies show over a 90% survival rate – you get the dosage you need from one capsule. It isn’t necessary to take many billions of bacteria hoping that some will make it to where they are needed. Acidophilus Pearls™guarantees delivery of live bacteria, and has been shown to increase the beneficial bacteria in the intestines by 600%.


Why does Acidophilus Pearls™ contain only two strains of probiotics?

Acidophilus Pearls™ provides Lactobacillus acidophilus (which means "acid-loving, lactic acid-producing bacterium" in Latin) and Bifidobacterium longum, the two probiotic bacteria with the largest amount of research and clinical support. Over 75 years of published research has shown that lactic acid-producing bacteria in gerneral, and Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum in particular, are the most effective in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora.

Where do the bacteria in Acidophilus Pearls™ come from?
The Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum are harvested via a highly controlled fementation process, then purified, grown to large numbers, and concentrated to high doses. The exact substance on which they are grown is proprietary. A great deal of effort goes into the research to find the optimal blend of nutrients which yields the strongest and healthiest bacteria. In order to keep this research from being duplicated by other companies we do not disclose the exact nutrient base on which the bacteria are grown.

Why would I take Acidophilus Pearls™ instead of yogurt?
Acidophilus Pearls™ provides all the goodness of yogurt without the sugar, fat, calories or lactose. This product offers a beneficial alternative for individuals who are sensitive to dairy and a convenient way to obtain powerful probiotics, anytime - anywhere. Acidophilus Pearls™ requires no refrigeration, no spoon, and no hassle.

In addition, there is some question about the actual probiotic count found in yogurt products. The National Yogurt Association (NYA) has established criteria for products that carry the Live & Active Culture seal.  While the probiotic count is set at the time of manufacture, the "time" has not been well defined (i.e., Before or after fermentation?, Before or after packaging?).  Either process may require high temperatures and potentially damage the fragile probiotic bacteria.

Acidophilus Pearls™, on the other hand, is guaranteed to deliver 1 billion beneficial probiotic bacteria to the intestines throughout product shelf-life.
