Complete Probiotics | Dr Mercola
Better Nutrition Magazine Award Winner - Best of Supplements 2016
The effects of a healthy microbiome reach much more widely than you can imagine. Your gut flora affect far more than your digestive health, it affects the health of your entire body - remember that 80 percent of your immune system actually lives in your gut.
A well established probiotic brand, Dr Mercola’s Complete Probiotics is highly bio-available and a very effective, multi-strain probiotic which promotes good digestive health, contributes to the normal function of the immune system and good levels of health for gut, body and mind.
Dr Mercola's new and improved Complete Probiotics features 10 strains of beneficial bacteria, including the highly effective strain, Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1. It has been found that this specific probiotic strain possesses vital properties important to human health, and without it, your potential benefits could come up short.

- Promotes an optimal environment for the growth of good bacteria
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune system.

It also does not need to be refrigerated, so it’s convenient for travel, and that's just the beginning.
What is DDS®-1 Probiotic Superstrain?
Over the years, several studies have demonstrated the diverse effectiveness of DDS®-1 and help validate its potential use as a probiotic. Here are a few examples:
- From major Midwestern University and prestigious health centre - Results showed that after 60 days of treatment, most showed significant improvement in abdominal health, bloating and occasional elimination irregularities. This study suggests that DDS®-1 may help increase the healthy micro-flora in the gastrointestinal tract.
- In another study, DDS®-1 helped to support the health of human epithelial cell lines when evaluated as part of a probiotic blend.
- From the Cultured Dairy Product Journal –DDS®-1 was shown to produce a compound called ‘acidophilin” which demonstrates activity against a variety of pathogenic bacteria
- In laboratory research, isolated evaluation of DDS®-1 supported the normal production of immune components. DDS®-1 performed this better than three other strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus or Bifidobacterium bifidum.
- Other laboratory studies show the potential beneficial effects of DDS®-1 on cholesterol
- A clinical study was done showing daily ingestion of DDS®-1 in combination with three Bifidobacterium strains provided significant improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms like bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation in the majority of participants.
With regular use, this unique strain has an extensive list of potential benefits. DDS®-1 can:
- Colonise the intestinal tract in high numbers
- Provide long-lasting colonisation
- Help support your digestive health
- Survive the harsh acidic environment of the stomach
- Survive the high alkalinity and presence of bile acids of the small intestine
- Produce a substance that helps balance gut bacteria
- Help protect against disease-causing bacteria by forming a shield within the intestinal lining
- Support cellular health by stimulating the production of immune messengers
- Support cholesterol levels already within a healthy, normal range
- Produce lactase to potentially help those unable to tolerate lactose
- Produce vitamins B12, folic acid, and vitamin B6
- Support colon health through its control over bile acids
- Support gut health and help promote normal stools
