NOW® BerryDophilus™ is a combination of probiotic bacterial strains designed to support gastrointestinal health and healthy immune system function. In addition, healthy intestinal flora also helps to create a favourable environment for the absorption of nutrients. FOS is included in this product to assist healthy growth of beneficial probiotic organisms. BerryDophilus™ can be used by both adults and children age of 3 years and older. Because it is sweetened with Xylitol, chewable BerryDophilus™ won't harm teeth and it tastes great. This product is low-glycemic and safe for diabetics. These fun animal-shaped, chewable tablets are particularly suited for children, but the kid in all of us can enjoy them too!
