Those with digestive issues and/or those prone to fungal infections should give acidophilus a try. I've taken acidophilus for about a year and Now's product seems to be the best. Taking acidophilus allows me to eat what I want and take necessary medications without worry of some undesirable side effect. NOW's acidophilus doesn't cause stomach upset and the ability to take one cap a day instead of three or four (as is needed with other probiotics) is an added bonus. A person could eat yogurt but I think swallowing a capsule with my other daily vitamins is easier.

Be aware that this product contains milk derivatives. Amazon's current product page indicates "Does Not Contain: milk,yeast,wheat,corn,soy,egg,preservatives." My bottle clearly says that it has milk derivatives and has a cautionary note that those who are highly sensitive to milk protein should be aware that NOW's acidophilus may contain minute amounts of casein.

Here are the supplement facts:

Serving Size 1 Capsule

Lactobacillus acidophilus 4.0 billion
Bifidobacterium lactis 3.2 billion
Bifidobacterium longum 0.8 billion
Total Minimum Microorganisms 8.0 billion

Other Ingredients: Potato starch, cellulose (capsule), cellulose, silica and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).

The bottle notes the following for recommended usage: "As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 2 times daily between meals or on an empty stomach. Consider taking this product in combination with a NOW fiber supplement, Nutra Flora(tm) FOS and Optimal Digestive System."

Note: This item is not shipped in a refrigerated container. Ideally, acidophilus should be refrigerated to maintain potency.

I want to start by saying that I'm a big fan of Now products. The low rating is not with respect to the quality of product that the company puts out. I have purchased this item from my local natural food store in the past and I decided to buy this through Amazon since I had been traveling and unable to make my regular store stops. When the product arrived, however, there was no cold pack. It was shipped like anything else. This made me wonder whether Amazon even refrigerated the product at all while it was stored at the warehouse. If they are not refrigerated, the potency (that you are paying for) will be much less than advertised (and therefore unreliable and likely overpriced). The bottle clearly writes "KEEP REFRIGERATED TO MAINTAIN HIGH POTENCY." Apparently Amazon.com did not see that label.

This item clearly states " keep refrigerated to retain potency". It arrived with no cold pack and I just read that it was not refrigerated in storage. I'm furious! Want full refund,

After waiting 3 weeks I finally got confirmation that Amazon.com does not refrigerate this product on site at their warehouse. Who knows how long they sit there at room temperature. The live cultures in this probiotic cannot survive at room temp so these probiotics are worthless once you get them. No wonder they are so cheap! Shame on Amazon.

After a couple years of taking doctor prescribed meds to no avail, I tried something new, and found that NOW acidophilus got rid of what I suspected was an intestinal candida yeast problem that was giving me pretty bad acid reflux. Within 2 days of taking this my reflux was gone and I am feeling better than ever! That was about a year ago.

like the other reviewer wrote, i also never get sick when i take Acidophilus and Bifidus. it also helps with IBS symptoms. i ran out of this product for a month before ordering more and had a bad IBS flare-up; after i resumed taking this product for a couple weeks, my symptoms dissipated.

I think this really works. I am prone to yeast infection and UTI. After a week of taking these, I feel better down there and my urine color looks healthier than previous months.
