BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  L. acidophilus?
Posted by: yaeli, Saturday, January 7, 2012, 6:13pm
This friendly bacterium used to be and still is one of the major ingredients of probiotics in the markets, if not the major one. As it has no place at all in Polyflora, I wonder if the probiotics industry concept misses the target also in this case?  :o  In other words, the fact that Dr. D doesn't include it in any BT Polyflora tells me that BTD/GTD compliant people don't need it at all for their intestine's health. I may be wrong. My knowledge in biochemistry is below zero. I read in the wikipedia that acidophilus ferments sugar into lactic acid, so maybe it has to do with this fact.

I'd be grateful if anyone can tell me about it. Thanks!

Yeali,

http://www.probiotic.org/acidophilus.htm
This page talks about "Acidophilus" being used as an umbrella term, as well as one of the Lactobacillus strains...

If you click on some other strains listed on the left, some additional explanation about the specific strains indicate why they may be better for inclusion in a probiotic formula.  For instance, L. Sporogenes and L Bulgaricus are spore-producing bacteria.  According to this site, the spore helps the bacteria maintain viability during the trip through the stomach.

ABJoe thank you for the link!

I wanted to make a point, that Dr. D does not include at all this popular probiotic strain in his probiotic preparations, and I ask myself what is the reason.

Anyway I gather it is insignificant.

popular does not take physiology or individuality into account :)

I answered this somewhat indirectly by pointing out that the spore producing bacteria would get through the gut easier, therefore, you get more bang for your buck with the ones Dr. D. is using...  While this may not be the only reason, I am guessing that it is a factor...

and to resist it when necessary is a whole new phase of internal freedom!!!

I am almost 6 years in BTD/GTD and apparently to this moment haven't yet reached this level ...  :) ;) Lola thank you ever so much for leading us in this breakthrough. You inspire me every day with your daring.

Is  Lactobacillus casei desame with L. acidophilus?

The short answer is No, they are not the same.

Here is a link to L. Acidophilus:

Here is a link to L. Casei information:
http://www.probiotic.org/lactobacillus-casei.htm

You can read about both and see the differences.

Dr. D does not include this strain in any of the Polyflora products.
