Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®L. acidophilus NCFM®, which stands for the research laboratory it was first discovered at (“North Carolina Food Microbiology” lab), is a patented beneficial lactic acid bacteria strain often used to support lactose intolerance by promoting the digestion of simple sugars and other tough-to-digest nutrients.
This strain has been shown in numerous studies to help relieve gastrointestinal discomfort by supporting a healthy balance of “friendly” intestinal microbiota. Further research suggests that L. acidophilus NCFM® may activate endocannabinoid and μ-opioid receptors in epithelial cells. These receptors work to modulate pain signals in targeted tissues. L. acidophilus NCFM® is also necessary for helping the body synthesize vitamin B9 (folate) and vitamin B12, which are key for healthy nervous system function.

I take acid reflux medication daily but at times or long periods of time I have it at night. I take 2 capsules at night before bed and it takes care of any acid. Sometimes I need to take a couple of tums but very very rare. This stuff works! You can even use it during the day. I always have a bottle in hand
Eat dairy again?
I hope with this supplement I will be able to eat dairy again.

My husband suffers with acid reflux. He started taking this a few weeks ago and has not had 1 episode since! We are so impressed with the result he's had taking Acidophilus. It's truly amazing!
