Primadophilus Bifidus

(Nature's Way)

My God-given Food Eating Plan book mentions the many benefits of eating yogurt. These include reducing the risk of colon cancer, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, and having a positive effect on blood sugar. I have found that eating yogurt on a regular basis helps to keep me, well, "regular."

The benefits of yogurt are due to its beneficial bacteria. These are known as "probiotics." Consuming yogurt is the best way to attain these beneficial probiotics. But many do not like the taste of yogurt. Ways to make it more palatable are discussed in my Eating Plan book. Some brands of organic cottage cheese also contain these beneficial bacteria.

But even at that, to get the full benefits would require eating yogurt or such cottage cheese every day. That is not always possible, so a way to ensure attaining the needed amounts would be to use a supplement.

Many types of probiotic supplements are available. But they can vary greatly in terms of quality and the kinds and amounts of bacteria present. The best such supplement I have found is Nature's Way Primadophilus Bifidus. It contains four different types of bacteria, totaling 5 billion count per capsule. That is far more bacteria than you will get with most such supplements.

I have found that taking the recommended one capsule per day provides the same "regularity" benefits as a cup of yogurt. So on days I do not consume yogurt or cottage cheese, I take this product.

Nature's Way Primadophilus Bifidus is available from iHerb. When checking out, use referral code HOP815 to receive $5.00 off your first order.
