About the product
Designed with a high concentration of Lactobacillus acidophilus, this formula ensures that your body has adequate amounts of this important probiotic strain. L. acidophilus produces enzymes that help you digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats. This bacterial strain also produces lactic acid, which supports the gastrointestinal and immune systems. It can be found in yogurt and other dairy products, but it is available in higher concentrations in supplement form. Each capsule of Super 8 Plus Probiotic provides 11.25 billion colony forming units of L. acidophilus. If the body’s supply of this important strain is too low, lactose intolerance often occurs. World-renowned nutrition expert Udo Erasmus has created 7 different formulas to provide the right probiotic supplement for every member of the family. The type and amount of probiotic bacterial strains needed for best results will change at different stages of life and under different health conditions. Udo’s Choice® Probiotic Blends are best taken after meals. All of the bacterial strains chosen have been specially developed and tested for their gastric resistance. Unlike the live bacterial content of many foods being marketed today, the probiotic strains in Udo’s blends are able to survive the stomach acids to reach the intestinal tract at full potency. Why do we need probiotic supplements? While most people assume they have a healthy intestinal tract, lifestyle and environmental factors can compromise the digestive system. This allows undesirable bacteria to take hold and cause problems. Such factors may include poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress, the use of antibiotics in food production and medical treatments, and a number of other factors, including health problems and simply aging, which can greatly reduce the number of friendly bacteria in the body. When the ratio of good bacteria to bad is out of balance, problems begin to arise such as poor absorption of nutrients and intestinal toxicity. This can result in gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation, among other discomforts. If this imbalance is left untreated, the symptoms can become chronic and can compromise the immune system and lead to other serious health concerns.

NPN Claim: Provides lives micro-organisms that form part of a natural healthy intestinal flora.

Features: For adults 19-54. Each vegetarian capsule guarantees a minimum of 25 billion viable cells per capsule at date of expiry (a minimum of 42 billion at time of manufacture). Contains medicinal human strains of live probiotic bacteria that ensure better survival and colonization rates than transient strains. Formulated with selective strains that survive the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, thus eliminating the need to use potentially allergenic enteric coatings. Contains only pure, concentrated living probiotic bacteria, free of additives, yeast and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS). We guarantee billions of live friendly bacteria at the printed expiry date due to: special moisture and oxygen resistant capsules, independent (third-party) laboratory analysis for potency and purity, and careful packaging in recyclable, dark glass bottles and metal caps that do not allow air or light to affect the contents.

About the vendor
Kerrisdale Pharmacy
Vancouver, BC
Kerrisdale Pharmacy was established in the early 1970's by pharmacist Romeo Goulet and was subsequently sold to pharmacist Odie McNeil.

In November 1981, Michael Holyk made the trip west from his home in Westlock, Alberta (where he owned Holyk Super Drug Mart) and purchased the pharmacy from McNeil.

At this time the pharmacy was located in its original site at 2142 West 41st Avenue in Kerrisdale and measured only 2000 square feet.

Michael’s son Colin graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy at UBC in 1990 and joined the team at the pharmacy. Seven years later, they undertook the move to their new (and current) location at 5591 West Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, Michael and Colin added a second pharmacy to the family when they purchased Hollyburn Pharmacy in West Vancouver, BC.

After 10 years in the new location they decided to renovate Kerrisdale Pharmacy, so they took over the next door site, expanded the pharmacy, added a medical clinic, and completed a floor to ceiling renovation - staying open the whole time through the construction dust and disruption in order to provide the top notch service that their clients had become accustomed to. A daunting task to say the least!

Shortly after moving the pharmacy in the 1990’s, pharmacist Eugene Mar joined the team and now shares the management duties of the pharmacy as Assistant Pharmacy Manager.

Since this time, Colin and Eugene have helped turn the pharmacy into a neighbourhood icon thanks to their diligent focus on comprehensive health care, a wide scope of services including compounding, and good, honest empathy for each person who walks through their door.
