    I take a high quality acidophilus, in capsule form. Is that sufficient, or am I missing something?

    It's better than nothing, but I prefer a product with several types of good bacteria, like bifidus, bulgaricus, rhamnosus and thermophilus, as well as acidopholous. I just want to cover all my bases!

    My Mom was taking only acidophilus and still having bad reactions to dairy. When she started taking the Jarro-Dophilus, her situation improved dramatically. The Jarro contains FOS which helps it get past the stomach and into the intestines where the good bacteria can colonize.

    Mikie is right, I also take the Jarrow, it is the best I have found.

    Pro Health is now selling this brand.

    Good information. I'll look into this further.

    Happy Friday!
