Get the one that started it all! Dr. Shahani's Original L. Acidophilus has the DDS-1 strain of L. Acidophilus originally developed in the 1950s by Dr. Khem Shahani and his team at the Department of Dairy Science, University of Nebraska. Now by special arrangement with Nebraska Cultures, the company Dr. Shahani founded to bring his remarkable probiotic to the public, Swanson is able to offer Dr. Shahani's original strain of acidophilus to you at a remarkably affordable price. Among all the strains tested by University researchers, only the DDS-1 strain of L. acidophilus met every necessary criteria for a beneficial probiotic while simultaneously maintaining the stability necessary to produce a commercial product. If you take acidophilus, or if you think you might benefit from the digestive assistance, immune support and other properties of this important probiotic, Dr. Shahani's Original L. Acidophilus is the perfect choice for a product you can rely on day in and day out.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not impressed I had better results with the Dr. Langer's formulation. In fact, I experienced more flatulence with this than before I started with probiotics. January 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My digestion is much better! My digestion is much better! I would recommend it to anyone. I used other brands but this one helps the most. March 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best I have tried many of these and this one is the most effective formula I have found! October 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by better than similar products my husband is on his 2nd bottle of this & I intend to continue ordering it for him. I was skeptical about whether or not this was actually any different than similar products, but I believe it is definitely helping him! February 10, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value! I use probiotics daily and have found this one to be as effective as any of the higher priced versions. Great product, great price! August 17, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by No effect at all I read extensively about the product and really thought it would help, but it appears to have no impact/improvement on my digestive process. I prefer the ProBiotic-4 supplement instead. July 28, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super acidophilus Excellent, fresh, and potent. My digestion is easier and swifter while using this acidophilus supplement. July 27, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is a very good product, but not vegetarian Of course, this was totally my mistake, but I did not take care in examining the ingredients. I learned my lesson and have since ordered only after scanning the label for gelatin. My bad, Swanson! Anyway, having purchased it, I am now using this product, and it seems to deliver all the protective effects that acidophilus brings. I have been having a very healthy summer. I will look for another acidophilus product that is not encased in gelatin. July 22, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works Too bad the FDA has censored public comments on products they use,but I can say that this one is good and the research bears out the excellent results I have gotten. June 18, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOWza!! This stuff is dynamite!! I've used many different types and brands of pro and pre-biotics, and this is the BEST!! I went on-line and checked into the information and reviews presenting Dr. Shahani's research of the DDS-1 strain of acidophilous, and it is impressive to say the least. So are the results! And with the FOS included in Swanson's product, the value in this product is there too. Having to purchase the FOS separately, would add greatly to the cost. October 25, 2008
