For Digestive, Immune, and Colon Health*

Probiotic Pearls Acidophilus is formulated with L. acidophilus and B. longum strains to promote digestive balance, immune, and colon health, while protecting against occasional bloating, constipation, and digestive discomfort.*

The Smarter Probiotic*

Tiny, tough, and convenient. Probiotic Pearls are designed with an advanced triple-layer coating that protects each pearl from heat, air, moisture, and stomach acid, helping them survive the journey to your small intestine, where they’re needed most.

  • A. There are no known contraindications that would prohibit giving a child Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus. However, it is critical that they be swallowed whole, so the child must be able to take the product without chewing it. Any break in the integrity of the Pearl will affect the efficacy of the probiotics.

  • A. Palm oil is a natural plant product that is produced from the fruit of the oil palm, or Elaeis Guineensis tree. The exact amount of palm oil in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus is proprietary. However, it is a miniscule amount per pearl; the amount is less than the weight of an apple seed.

    Palm oil in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus actually “seals” the probiotic bacteria in the capsule, which protects them from air. Probiotic bacteria are anaerobic, meaning they do not require oxygen to live. In fact, the presence of oxygen can actually injure or kill probiotic bacteria. In addition, the palm oil's ability to seal the bacteria in the capsule eliminates the need for the nutritional supplement to be refrigerated – though they can be kept in the refrigerator if desired.


  • A. The outer coating components are part of the True Delivery™ Technology system, which protects the probiotic bacteria from the harsh stomach acid so that they can be released into the intestines. The coating ingredients, pectin and gelatin, are listed on the label.

  • A. Acidophilus Pearls™ provides Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum, two probiotic bacteria with the greatest amount of research and clinical support. In fact, over 75 years of published research has shown that beneficial bacteria in general, (and Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum in particular) are the most effective in maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora every day.*

  • A. Yes, the probiotic bacteria in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus are human strain. That is, the chosen strains are indigenous to the human gastrointestinal tract, and as such, they more readily adapt to and colonize the gastrointestinal tract. The probiotics in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus are harvested via a highly controlled fermentation process, then purified, grown to large numbers, and concentrated to high doses. A great deal of effort goes into the research to find the optimal blend of nutrients which yields the strongest and healthiest bacteria.

  • A. The gelatin in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus is derived from fish (tilapia).

  • A. Recent research on probiotics has suggested that many people can take daily dosages in amounts far in excess of the 1 billion CFU per day delivered by Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus. While the optimal daily dose is unknown and may vary from person to person, studies have looked at doses as high as 100-200 billion cfu/day. It is always a good idea to confer with your health care professional when deciding what daily dose of probiotics may be optimal for you.

  • A. Take them with meals, between meals, or whenever it is easiest for you to remember.

  • A. Integrative Therapeutics is committed to stewardship and sustainability in the service of positive social and environmental outcomes. The fact that Enzymatic Therapy does not purchase wild harvest and strives to cultivate sustainable vendor relationships are two examples of this commitment. We have and continue to implement procedures company-wide to improve our efficiency and in turn, reduce our carbon footprint. Palm oil is an important ingredient in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus and plays an crucial role in the True Delivery™ Technology. Put in perspective, the amount of palm oil found in Probiotic Pearls® Acidophilus is very small - far less than the amount found in one commercially manufactured cookie. The level is insignificant and when compared to other uses of palm oil, doesn’t have a substantial impact on the palm oil supply and subsequently on deforestation.

  • A. The soybean oil is an excipient, an inert substance that is added to a tablet, capsule, or liquid in order to make it easier to administer, absorb or manufacture. Soybean oil is often added to softgel formulations to suspend the key ingredients, making sure they are evenly dispersed. It can be used in coatings, often in the form of soy lecithin, to improve the appearance and uniformity of the tablet. Our soybean oil is not hydrogenated.
