who can benefit from Allergen-Free Jarro-Dophilus ?
Jarro-Dophilus AF (Allergen Free) is especially beneficial for those individuals that have hypersensitivities to common food allergens, and seek the benefits that a probiotic has to offer.
how does each active ingredient function in Jarrodophilus AF??
Lactobacillus spp: common inhabitants of the human body, this genus contains some of the most well-known probiotic organisms. Strains of lactobacilli have been found to support immunity and produce substances that help promote a healthy digestive tract.
Bifidobacterium spp: a genus of organisms that colonize the gut shortly after birth and are integral in the healthy functioning of the adult digestive tract. Strains of bifidobacteria are known to produce healthy short-chain fatty acids, modulate immune response and promote greater tolerance to dairy products.
what distinguishes Jarrodophilus AF?
Allergen-Free Jarro-Dophilus AF is manufactured (fermented and processed) without the use of the known major food allergens, such as dairy and soy, and is especially appropriate for individuals with hypersensitivities to common food allergens.

With growing knowledge of probiotic role in human health and well-being, there has been a rapid increase in public interest in probiotic products for healthy immune system, digestion, and gastrointestinal regularity.
Jarrow Formulas has been a leader in probiotic formulation and distribution since 1980’s. Although it may seem that Jarrow Formulas already has all the bases covered with regard to probiotic products, Jarrow Formulas’ most advanced technology finally allowed the company to produce Jarro-Dophilus AF a certified allergen-free probiotics product. In addition to available Jarro-Dophilus general formulations and their specialty formulas, this product meets the needs of individuals with hypersensitivities and food allergies.
An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to a substance called an antigen (aka, allergen) which is foreign to the body, but otherwise harmless (e.g., pollen from grasses and flowers, proteins from certain foods, etc.). In an allergic individual, there is an overproduction of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to various allergens which then initiates an allergic reaction by setting in motion inflammatory processes. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of American, allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic condition in America with an annual cost exceeding $18 billion. Allergic responses are believed to complicate and even handicap the lives of nearly 50 million children and adults. The symptoms, or allergic reactions, may include sneezing, watery eyes, nasal congestion, rash, stomach upset, itchy swellings on the skin (hives), and spasms within the lungs that interfere with breathing.
Sometimes a reaction to food is not an allergy. It is often a reaction called “food intolerance.” Food intolerance is a digestive system response rather than an immune system response. It occurs when something in a food irritates a person’s digestive system or when a person is unable to properly digest, or breakdown, the food. Intolerance to lactose, which is found in milk and other dairy products, is the most common food intolerance. However, these symptoms can look and feel like those of a food allergy. In any case, the most common allergens are found in milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat/gluten, soy, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.
Certified allergen free
To avoid unpleasant and potentially dangerous allergic reactions associated with the use of a probiotic supplement, Jarrow Formulas AF is comprised of certified allergen free probiotic strains. The term, certified allergen free, is a designation awarded to various food ingredients in Europe, where allergens in foodstuffs are regulated by Directive 2003/89/EC, with the aim “to achieve a high level of health protection for consumers and to guarantee the right to information.”
In the case of Jarrow Formulas AF, its probiotics have received the certified allergen free designation as a result of an innovative allergen free manufacturing process with an international patent filed with approval pending. This process guarantees safe consumption even to individuals with food allergies and/or food intolerances. The process also improves stability of the freeze-dried probiotic at room temperature by protecting the physiological integrity of the bacterial cells.
In addition, use of the most sensitive analytical methods available and validated by Accredited International Institutions verify detection limits well below the critical allowed quantities and LOAEL (Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level) identified in DBPCFCs (Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Food Challenges). The tests are based on complementary analytical strategies to guarantee the utmost reliability of the analytical findings concerning the presence of trace allergens. This includes protein analysis (ELISA, SDS-PAGE and IMMUNOBLOT) and DNA Analysis (PCR and PCR-ELISA).
Jarro-Dophilus AF is composed of 6 well characterized and allergen-free probiotic strains, including strains that have been clinically documented. These strains have been manufactured (grown and processed) without the use of the known major allergens. Jarro-Dophilus AF is especially beneficial for those individuals that have hypersensitivities to common food allergens

Can artificial sweeteners harm gut health and make you gain weight?Early September we published an overview of various natural and artificial sweeteners that are currently available and possible avantages or disadvantages associated to them.
Until very recently the clear-cut explanation of all official governmental dietary agencies as well as most mainstream dieticians was that artificial sweeteners are harmless and not a single iota of proof was available to the contrary.
Even your humble writer still believed sweeteners are relatively harmless as by definition, rats and mice aren't human so evidence about harmfulness for those laboratory animals doesn't prove too much.
However, over time more and more evidence has come up that artificial sweeteners are truly not as good for your waistline as you think they are, in ways that wasn't looked at before. Our gut microbes, which have a bigger influence on your weight and insulin sensitivity than we realize, are negatively inflenced by the artificial sweeteners we ingest.
Six tips on how to stay healthy at a BBQ
Eating outdoors as the weather heats up is one of the hallmarks of summertime activity, but before you fire up your barbecue grill or send out invitations to the family picnic, there are some precautions you should take to avoid a common occurrence: food poisoning.
Each year one out of 4 persons suffer from food borne illnesses as a result of eating contaminated food.
Preparing foods with unclean hands, eating undercooked meats, transferring contamination from raw meats to other foods, eating unwashed fruits and vegetables, and leaving perishable food out in warm weather can release a slew of bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, as well as other food borne illnesses. This can result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fever.
Here are six tips to stop food-borne illnesses from ruining your BBQ-fun
Irritable bowel syndrome
Many of us suffer silently from chronic bowel pain. Contrary to many other types of pain, we rarely go and see a doctor for treatment, unless the discomfort is intolerablen as with Crohn's disease, thinking there is not much that can be done.
While it is true there are few useful drugs that help with bowel pain, diet, lifestyle changes and supplements can and do help a great deal. Pinpointing what food exactly aggravates your symptoms is very important and calls for the so-called elimination diet in which you make a list of foods that worsen your symptoms.
