Jarrow Formulas advertises this product as the number one selling probiotic supplement on the US market, and, at least in this case, we tend to think that’s a sign that it is a worthwhile supplement, helpful for people dealing with malabsorption or various gastrointestinal disturbances that prevent adequate digestion.
Here’s the product review from the NYBC website:
Jarro-Dophilus EPS (Jarrow) Each bottle, 60 capsules. Each capsule contains 4.4 billion probiotic organisms, including various species of Lactobacillus, Bifidus, Pediooccus acidilactici and Lactococcus diacetylactis. These capsules are enterically-coated to preserve them without refrigeration, which makes this an ideal product for use while travelling. However, if at home, refrigerate anyway, just to preserve them as well. Blister packed. Suggested use is 1-2 capsules per day, if possible, without food. Dairy-free and vegetarian formulation. Also contains potato starch, magensium stearate and ascorbic acid.
Note: A 2006 consumerlab.com report evaluated several brands of acidophilus-containing products. This Jarrow product passed all of their tests!
