GNLD NeoLife Acidophilus Plus™
--- Regulate your digestion!

GNLD NeoLife Acidophilus Plus™ is risk-free for the lactose intolerant and actually helps overcome lactose intolerance with the addition of lactase.

GNLD's Acidophilus PlusReduces intestinal fermentation, gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort.  Acidophilus relieves bad breath, foul smelling feces, and detoxifies harmful chemicals, and reduces the risk of disease.  It protects against yeast sensitivities and infections, helps digest milk protein, produce Vitamin B, enhance calcium absorption and stimulate enzyme activity.  It ensures adequate friendly bacteria in the intestines to aerate the bowel and maintain a more acid pH.

GNLD NeoLife's Acidophilus Plus™ can stop inappropriate growth of unfriendly, disease-causing organisms (E. coli, salmonella, shigella, clostridium and candida).

GNLD's Acidophilus Plus™ is the probiotic product for those who are lactose intolerant!  More than 400 different kinds of bacteria live in our gastrointestinal tract.  The body depends on beneficial probiotic bacteria to manufacture B-Vitamins and other antibacterial substances, as well as to transform lactose into lactic acid.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus is the normal probiotics, or "friendly", bacteria that live in our intestines (called flora).  Our intestinal flora helps regulate our digestion and stool patterns.  Yeast also lives in our intestines.  The yeast and the bacterial flora are constantly competing for space, and generally they keep each other in check.  Sometimes, however, our bacterial flora can get depleted by stress, infection, antibiotics, alcohol consumption and a diet high in processed, low-fiber foods.  Restoring balance is tough when most of today's cultured milk products and cooked foods don't contain live cultures.  And of the foods that do, most of the live cultures are digested in the stomach long before they reach the intestines, where they're needed!

Many other aspects of our modern lifestyle contribute to destroying your all-important gut flora, including:

  • Antibiotics, both from prescription antibiotics, and from consuming antibiotic-laden foods like non-organic meat, chicken, and milk from cows raised in Confined Animal Feeding Operations

  • Processed foods. Not only are processed foods void of "live" beneficial bacteria to begin with, the high sugar and grain content serve as fuel for the growth of pathogenic anaerobic bacteria, fungi, and yeast, which competitively inhibit your good bacteria

  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO foods).  Foods can be grown organically but still their source (seeds) can be genetically modified.

  • Aspartame, which inactivates digestive enzymes and alters gut barrier function, has been found to destroy up to 50 percent of your beneficial gut flora.

  • Chlorinated and/or fluoridated water.

  • Agricultural chemicals and pollution.

  • Oral contraceptives (birth control pills).

This allows the yeast to overgrow, which can then lead to a variety of problems:

  • Thrush
  • Mood Swings
  • Yeast diaper rash
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Cold Sores
  • Yeast infection of the breast

The term probiotics comes from the Greek "for life" (which gives you an inkling of what the word "antibiotics" really means).  When ingested, these living microorganisms replenish the microflora in your intestinal tract.  This results in the promotion of a number of health-enhancing functions, including enhanced digestive function.

GNLD red arrow graphicHow were people able to promote digestive health in times long past?
GNLD red arrow graphicDid they live with occasional unpleasant and uncomfortable digestive issues?
GNLD red arrow graphicDid these types of issues even exist?

digestive immunity image photo
The answer is likely a bit of both.

History does tell us about the ways different cultures promoted their intestinal health before modern times.  In the past, people used fermented foods, like yogurt and sauerkraut, as food preservatives and as support for intestinal and overall health.  Fermented foods are part of nearly every traditional culture.  As far back as Roman times, people ate sauerkraut because of its taste and benefits to overall health.  In ancient Indian society, it became commonplace (and still is) to enjoy a before-dinner yogurt drink called a "lassi".  At the end of the meal, they'd have a small serving of curd.  These Indian traditions were based on the principle of using sour milk as a probiotic delivery system to the body.

Other examples are all around us.  Bulgarians are known both for their longevity and their high consumption of fermented milk and kefir.  In Asian cultures, pickled fermentations of cabbage, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash and carrots still exist today.

Why can't we practice these methods?

It's not so much that we can't, as that we don't.  Poor diet and the stress- and pollution-filled environment provide significant challenges to healthy digestion, strong immunity and overall good health.  Progress, it seems, isn't always to our benefit.

You see, the processed foods that are so convenient also tend to upset the balance of bacteria needed to support overall intestinal health.  What's more, many food products today are pasteurized or sterilized during the production process, and this destroys the helpful bacteria needed to promote intestinal health.

Since the 1980's, science has come to a better understanding of bacteria, the effects on the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract, and immune systems.  As a result, the use of probiotics has become more widely accepted and practiced than ever before.  Today the science of probiotics has evolved into a rapidly growing field, generating a great deal of interest both from physicians and consumers.

Part of this could be due to the fact that some of the incredible statistics about your intestine read like a "Ripley's Believe It or Not".  Did you know that:

number one digestive tract image
About 80% of your immune system lives in your gastrointestinal tract.

number two digestive tract image
500 different species of bacteria live inside you.

number three digestive tract image
About one hundred trillion bacteria live inside you -- more than TEN TIMES the number of cells you have in your whole body.
number four digestive tract image
The weight of these bacteria is about two to three pounds.

number five digestive tract imageSome of these bacteria are referred to as "good", but others do not provide any benefit.  The ideal balance between them is 85% good, 15% "other".

This ratio between the "good" bacteria and the other bacteria becomes one of the critical factors determining your optimal health.  Have you heard people say that, "Death begins in the colon."?  On the contrary, life is promoted and enhanced in the colon -- if you know what you're doing.

Maintaining great intestinal health is akin to maintaining great overall health.

And once you've got a good handle on your overall health, you'll naturally feel better and be able to do more of the things you want to do ..... at home, at work, on vacation, anywhere and everywhere you go.

number one digestive tract image
Lactobacillus acidophilus -- guards the health of your entire digestive tract

number two digestive tract imageLactobacillus bulgarious -- works with other Lactobacillus strains to provide you a potential source of dietary antioxidants.

number three digestive tract imageBifidobacterium bifidum -- helps promote a healthy balance of flora in your intestine.*  What's more, this organism is especially helpful for enhancing immune response

number four digestive tract imageLactobacillus casei -- works with other helpful organisms, and helps to encourage the growth of other "good" bacteria.  A healthy and happy digestive system may help you keep your waistline slim and trim.  And recent scientific studies also show that supplementing with probiotics may help reduce fat.

The good bacteria in your intestinal system need good nutrition too.

That's where a good source of fiber in your diet can make a huge difference.  Beneficial bacteria just love to feed on fiber (such as that found in GNLD's All Natural Fiber Food™).  The less-than-desirable bacteria ("bad" bacteria) like to eat refined sugars and fats.

What does that mean to you and your health?

It means adding extra fiber to your diet will enhance the overall benefits of probiotics, thus enabling them to do their best work, helping your digestive system and immune system stay happy, healthy, and strong while also helping to regulate your weight so your waistline stays slim and trim.

Taking GNLD NeoLife Acidophilus Plus™ replenishes our bacterial flora and reduces the overgrowth of yeast.  Thanks to GNLD NeoLife Acidophilus Plus, your "acidophilus army" is 5 billion strong, ready for action in your intestinal "war zone"!!!

A numbers game you can win with GNLD!

What Beneficial Bacteria Does:

  • Bullet image  Transforms naturally-occurring sugars, especially lactose, into lactic acid, promoting a more balanced and stable intestinal environment.
  • Bullet image  Colonizes the intestines and discourage growth of harmful bacteria and fungi (such as E. coli, salmonella, shigella, clostridium and candida).
  • Bullet image  Helps maintain a healthful ratio of a variety of intestinal microorganisms.
  • Bullet image  Produces important vitamins, especilally B-Vitamins and Vitamin K.
  • Bullet image  Assists in the absorption of minerals, especially calcium.
  • Bullet image  Supports healthy immune system function and promote resistance to pathogenic bacteria.
  • Bullet image  Healthfully combines with bile acids and toxins, which may include cholesterol, heavy metals, and carcinogens.  This action supports the normal, healthy elimination of toxic products from the body.
  • Bullet image  Encourages normal cellular growth and activity, and normal tissue growth throughout the body.
  • Bullet image  Helps normalize digestion, bowel function, and intestinal environment.
  • Bullet image  Promotes a healthy metabolic response to ingested chemicals and environmental pollutants.

Beneficial ("good") intestinal bacteria (probiotics) promote health, discourage the growth of disease-causing ("bad") bacteria and pathogenic fungi, and improve the balance of microbes which normally inhabit our intestines, the lack of which can cause diarrhea.  Many beneficial bacteria (probiotics) transform naturally occurring sugars, especially lactose, into lactic acid, promoting a more balanced and stable intestinal environment.  As one of the most abundant sources of lactose is milk, these beneficial bacteria have been used for thousands of years to produce yogurt, cheese, and fermented milks.

Both science and folklore support healthful roles for these foods.  GNLD's supplement of beneficial bacteria (probiotics), Acidophilus Plus™, combines potency with technology to guarantee that live organisms survive the stomach acid and reach the intestines to deliver five billion viable organisms capable of supporting optimal digestive tract function.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  CAN I TAKE GNLD's ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™ IF I AM LACTOSE INTOLERANT?

A:  Yes.  Probiotics in Acidophilus Plus™, though derived from cultured dairy foods, are purified so that the amount of lactose remaining is insignificant to create any undesirable effects in lactose intolerant individuals.  In fact, lactobacilli are capable of producing lactase, an enzyme that helps break down lactose and helps the digestion of these foods.

Q:  DO I NEED TO TAKE GNLD's ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™ IF I CONSUME DAIRY PRODUCTS?

A:  Some, but not all, dairy products contain live, active cultures and many are sold suggesting that they are beneficial for our health.  Most of these are fresh products requiring refrigeration, and there is considerable doubt as to how many of the live bacteria actually survive in the stomach acid.  Taking Acidophilus Plus™ guarantees that a significant number of live beneficial bacteria are delivered to the intestine.

Q: THE PRODUCT LABEL SAYS GNLD's ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™ CONTAINS STREPTOCOCCUS. ISN'T THAT THE HARMFUL BACTERIA RESPONSIBLE FOR CAUSING STREP THROAT?

A:  No.  Some good bacteria have names that sound like bad bacteria.  Streptococcus refers only on the shape of the bacterium, and has nothing to do with its ability to promote health or cause disease.  (Strept means "twisted" and coccus means "round".)  Streptococcus thermophilus -- the species included in Acidophilus Plus™ -- has been safely used for centuries to produce cultured dairy products.  The bacterial species associated with causing strep throat is Streptococcus pyogenes.

Q:  DOES GNLD's ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™ NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED PRIOR TO OPENING THE BOTTLE?

A:  Although not necessary, keeping Acidophilus Plus™ refrigerated prior to opening the bottle may further increase the shelf life of the product.  It must be refrigerated after opening the bottle to ensure the potency of the beneficial cultures.

Q:  CAN CHILDREN USE GNLD's ACIDOPHILUS PLUS™?

A:  Yes.  Anyone who can safely swallow the Acidophilus Plus™ capsule can take the product and enjoy its benefits.

Glucose:  Glucose, also known as grape sugar, is a simple sugar (monosaccharide) and an important carbohydrate in biology.  Cells use it as the primary source of energy[1] and a metabolic intermediate.  Glucose is one of the main products of photosynthesis and starts cellular respiration.  Glucose is a primary source of energy for the brain, and hence its availability influences psychological processes.  When glucose is low, psychological processes requiring mental effort (e.g., self-control, effortful decision-making) are impaired [2,3,4,5].
