Primadophilus is an enteric coated, high potency probiotic product, in a convenient once daily dose. It is especially designed for teenagers through middle aged adults. It contains specially selected strains of freeze-dried microorganisms in a neutral base. Our product is kept refrigerated throughout the manufacturing process and should be kept in the refrigerated portion of your local Nature's Way retailer.
Usage Primadophilus is designed to deliver helpful bacteria to the gut. These microorganism strains are essential to maintaining healthy intestinal flora. Under normal conditions, trillions of bacteria exist in the intestines. As part of the body's defenses they help maintain good health by preventing harmful microorganisms from infiltrating the body. Medications taken to combat illness or infection can reduce the number of beneficial bacteria as an unwanted side effect. To maintain the healthy balance add Nature's Way Primadophilus to your daily health regimen.*
Recommended Daily Dosage Take one Primadophilus capsule (2.9 billion Lactobacillus microorganisms per day). Intensive dosage: After two weeks at the usual dosage, intake may be increased up to one Primadophilus capsule three times per day. To retain maximum potency, keep refrigerated.

Quality Issues Highest Potency: Minimum potency of 10 billion microorganisms per gram (2.9 billion per capsule) at time of manufacture. 100% Intestinal Release Difference: Each Primadophilus capsule has a proprietary enteric coating that completely withstands stomach acid so it can release its full potency into the intestinal tract. Without this feature up to 95 % of the cultures would be lost in the stomach.
What are the differences in the four different Primadophilus formulas? Different age groups have different intestinal needs. To respond to the unique needs of every member of your family, Nature's Way has developed four different formulas of Primadophilus brand supplements. (See also Primadophilus Bifidus, Primadophilus Junior and Primadophilus for Children).
What is the normal color for Primadophilus products? The normal color for Primadophilus products is an off-white with brown flecks. The brown flecks are the material the bacteria is plated on. They are characteristic of this product; however, the specs will be more prominent if the product has not been stored properly (refridgerated).
