Lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of beneficial bacteria, often referred to as a probiotic, that lives naturally in your intestines and vagina. Lactobacillus acidophilus has been used to treat or prevent vaginal yeast infections, yeast infections of the mouth, diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics, and urinary tract infections.
lactobacillus Acidophilus supplements contain live bacteria and to ensure they remain active you must follow the recommended storage instructions on the label. They should be kept in a sealed container and away from light, heat and moisture. The fridge is a good storage place, although not essential. The label should also show an expiration date after which date the bacteria are considered no longer viable.
