*** Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1

-   From major Midwestern University and prestigious health center (2010).    Conducted a review of case studies to determine whether using a multispecies probiotic with DDS-1 could enhance bowel health.

After 60 days of treatment, most showed significant improvement in abdominal health, bloating and occasional elimination irregularities. This study suggests that DDS-1 may help create a healthy balance of microflora in the gastrointestinal tract.*

-   From Gut (2003).   DDS-1 helped to support the health of human epithelial cell lines when evaluated as part of a probiotic blend.

-   (1997).    In animal research, isolated evaluation of DDS-1 supported the normal production of immune components. DDS-1 performed this better than three other strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus or Bfidobacterium bifidum.

Suggested Use of Dr. Mercola's complete probiotics: Take 2 capsules before breakfast (i.e. on empty stomach) with water once /day.
