My husband has been on an antibiotic because of the toe infection he had. The doctor wants to be on the safe side by keeping him on it just a few more weeks. As a result, his digestive tract has been acting up somewhat. He was advised to try acidophilus, which promotes digestive health.
My husband also has a hard time swallowing pills, so I was able to find chewable acidophilus wafers by Nature's Bounty. He takes three wafers a day, as instructed on the back of the bottle. There are 100 wafers in one bottle. They are strawberry-flavored, and he tells me that they seem to be helping in settling his digestive tract.
Before taking these wafers, you should check with your doctor. My husband knew he was safe because his doctor is the one who instructed him to take it. The acidophilus wafers contain bifidus and are milk free. One wafer contains the goodness of a yogurt.
Besides bifidus, they contain sucrose, fructose, cellulose (plant origin), vegetable stearic acid, natural flavors, silica, citric acid and vegetable magnesium stearate. Each wafer provides one billion microorganisms at the time of manufacture.
If you need to get your digestive tract back on track, check with your doctor to see if he advises you to take acidophilus.
