  • Scientists suggest that Probiotic supplements like Gr8-Dophilus helps maintain the balance between the beneficial and harmful bacteria in the intestines. By suppressing the growth of disease-causing bacteria, yeast, fungi and other parasites, probiotics may reduce the risk for infectious diarrhea, inflammatory bowel diseases, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, periodontal disease and tooth decay, skin infections, and vaginal infections.
  • Friendly bacteria are important to immune functions. These probiotics work by supporting healthy numbers of lymphocytes, improve antibody responses, stimulate white blood cells’ phagocytic activities, and support healthy production of immune-modulating chemicals like gamma interferon. The fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in NOW Gr8-Dophilus supports natural growth of probiotics in the digestive tract for improved immune functions.
  • Probiotics may help reduce the side effects of antibiotics on the digestive tract. Probiotic supplements are used by some people for digestive support for cramping, diarrhea, and gas related to antibiotic use. Additionally, Gr8-Dophilus may help replenish the good bacteria that are killed by the antibiotics together with the bad bacteria.
  • NOW Foods Gr8-Dophilus is an additional source of good bacteria. This supplement is ideal for replenishing the good bacteria killed due to use of Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory drugs (Advil, Midol, Motrin, etc.), chlorine in drinking water, radiation and chemotherapy, and cigarette and alcohol abuse.


Gr8-Dophilus is formulated with 8 species of beneficial bacteria that naturally supports gastrointestinal health and immune defences. This probiotic supplement includes fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to encourage the growth of acidophilus and bifidus species in the intestinal flora. The enteric coating of the capsules ensures that the beneficial bacteria survive the acidic environment of the stomach to reach the intestines.

It is estimated that the human body carries 100,000,000,000,000 bacterial cells. The human body is home to a large diversity of bacteria, 1000 species of bacteria resides in humans. Fortunately, not all these bacteria are harmful to health, most of them are actually essential to normal growth and development. The balance of the beneficial bacteria versus the harmful bacteria should be maintained to prevent health problems. These good bacteria help facilitate the absorption of nutrients in the intestines, development of the immune system, and prevent the overgrowth of the bad bacteria that could cause diseases. There are cases where the natural balance in the intestinal flora is disrupted such as the use of antibiotics, NSAIDs, chlorine in drinking water, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Other potential causes are alcohol abuse and smoking, diet high in fats and sugar, and constipation. In these situations, replenishing the lost friendly bacteria may help ensure optimum digestive health and immune functions.
