Acidophilus Pearls use a proprietary coating process called True Delivery Technology. This technology produces a seamless, three-layered pearl that guarantees delivery of the probiotics into the intestine where they are released intact and healthy to increase intestinal flora.
The inner layer is a paste of healthy probiotics suspended in a protective oil mixture.
The second layer seals the probiotics in the capsule, and protects them from air and moisture. Probiotics are anaerobic organisms and the presence of oxygen can actually injure, weaken, or kill them.
The third layer is a patented coating that protects the probiotics from the acid environment of the stomach, so they can successfully reach the intestine where they are needed. Probiotics are not resistant to stomach acids, so the outermost layer of the pearl is specially developed to dissolve only in the alkaline environment of the intestines.
WARNINGS: This product has a tamper-evident foil pouch. Do not use if foil or pouch is punctured! Store in a cool, dry location. May refrigerate if desired.
NOTES: A scientific study showed patented Acidphilus Pearls delivered up to 900% more intact probiotics to the intestine in relation to label claim than 4 leading competitors, including those with enteric coatings.
