Afternoon doc. Tiger Ask what Acidophilus supplements are for. If an adult in his 30’s can eat? Before eating or after eating. Thanks Doc.

1 Answer:

Hello Anne, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Acidophilus, or Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the bacteria that is normally present in the human body, namely in the mouth, digestive tract, and vagina. This bacterium is commonly made into a supplement as a probiotic that functions to help increase the number of normal bacteria in the human body to help overcome several conditions such as:

Bacterial vaginosis
Diarrhea due to antibiotic use
Urinary tract infection
Pulmonary infection in children
Eczema in children

Supplements that contain these bacteria are basically man for use at all ages, including adults and even pregnant women. However, for doses and whether or not someone needs to take this supplement, they must go through a doctor's examination first because even though normally these bacteria are present in the body, not everyone needs additional supplementation from these bacteria.


Therefore, if you want to take these supplements, it is highly recommended to check first the conditions and complaints that may exist at this time, so it can be determined whether you really need these supplements or not and how the recommended dosage according to your condition if needed.


It is not recommended to take these supplements without clear recommendations or before you consult a doctor first.


I hope this helps.
