Biobeads Probiotic Acidophilus by Natrol
Natrol - Biobeads Probiotic Acidophilus - 90 Bead(s)
Natrol Biobeads Probiotic Acidophilus are uniquely protected by an advanced triple shell that ensures viability through all three biophases.
BioPhase 1: Targeted-release technology helps guarantee BioBeads potency for 18 months on the shelf, and protects viable microflora all the way to ingestion.
BioPhase 2: Bead passes safely through the acidic stomach environment unharmed.
BioPhase 3: Inner layer gently breaks down, releasing proprietary blend of probiotics that helps support digestive heealth and immuity.
Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. People with flourishing intestinal colonies of beneficial bacteria are better equipped to fight the growth of disease-causing bacteria. Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora by producing organic compounds—such as lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid—that increase the acidity of the intestine and inhibit the reproduction of many harmful bacteria. Probiotic bacteria also produce substances called bacteriocins, which act as natural antibiotics to kill undesirable microorganisms.
Where are they found?
Beneficial bacteria present in fermented dairy foods—namely live culture yogurt—have been used as a folk remedy for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Yogurt is the traditional source of beneficial bacteria. However, different brands of yogurt can vary greatly in their bacteria strain and potency. Some (particularly frozen) yogurts do not contain any live bacteria. Supplements in powder, liquid extract, capsule, or tablet form containing beneficial bacteria are other sources of probiotics.

Quality Materials Used In Natrol’s Products
Natrol buys raw materials from companies located in the U.S. and abroad. Regardless of the country of origin, their intensive quality procedures ensure that Natrol's products are safe, pure, and meet label claims. Natrol's Quality Assurance Program involves the following key components:
Vendor Qualification: Natrol’s strict vendor qualification program includes screening by a GMP audit questionnaire, followed by facility audits to ensure they select reliable suppliers. As a result, Natrol has close working relationships with a group of trusted vendors who consistently furnish the highest quality materials.
Ingredient Testing: All ingredients are carefully inspected upon receipt, sampled, and held under quarantine until analytical testing is completed to confirm that they meet all specifications for purity, activity, and physical characteristics. All materials undergo thorough testing prior to release for manufacturing. Any material that does not meet all specifications is rejected. Natrol’s reputation for having strict acceptance criteria and rejecting unsuitable materials is well known throughout the nutraceutical industry.
In-Process Testing: During the manufacturing process, testing is also conducted to assure that each product conforms to the specifications established for it.
Finished Product Testing: All manufactured products undergo final analytical testing to ensure their safety, purity, and activity levels. Final testing includes physical and chemical analyses and microbiological testing to guarantee each Natrol product meets all quality specifications. Sensitive analytical testing is also performed to ensure that their products are below the legal limit (California Proposition 65) for heavy metals (Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, and Mercury).
Document Control: All aspects of the quality program and test results are thoroughly documented. Traceability of every ingredient used in each of their products is an absolute requirement of their system.
Record Retention: All production and testing records are maintained in safekeeping for several years.
Regular Quality Audits: Natrol undergoes regular quality audits by its licensing and certifying agencies. Natrol also conduct internal audits of their procedures and processes to ensure compliance within their organization.

I use this regularly. I gave some to my daughter after she suffered from a bout of C-Diff and it worked great for her.
Bought for husband as he has great trouble swallowing any of the other probiotics capsules. The price for the amount is good and does not have to have refrigeration.
Small, easy to take, don't have to refridgerate! I was told this strain would help with my bad eczema flare ups and it seems to be helping!!
