For Intestinal and Immune Health*

Jarro-Dophilus EPS® is a shelf stable probiotic product due to its stability at room temperature. It contains an enteric coating to protect the probiotic from stomach acid. Eight (8) different strains of probiotic bacteria are delivered directly into small intestines where probiotic bacteria fully exert their beneficial effects.*

How Do the Active Ingredients Function in This Probiotic Product?

Lactobacillus rhamnosus R0011

A unique, high producer of polysaccharides that facilitate colonization and stimulate intestinal immune response.*

Bifidobacteria longum BB536
(moringa strain)

Has been shown to colonize, stimulate immune response, and promote growth of beneficial bacteria.*

Lactobacillus helveticus (acidophilus) R0052

Assists in breaking down lactose (milk sugar), which may improve digestion of dairy products by those individuals who are lactose intolerant.*

Lactococcus and Pediococcus

Helps reduce spoilage caused by unfriendly bacteria in cultured dairy products.


The Ultimate Probiotic Supplement

Probiotics support the immune system and normal digestion to help with absorption of nutrients.* The intestines range from a relatively alkaline environment (pH) of the small intestine to an acidic environment in the stomach. No one strain of bacteria can provide all benefits throughout the entire length of the alimentary canal. Jarrow Formulas® Jarro-Dophilus EPS® supplies eight different strains to support probiotic efficacy. The eight different species found in Jarro-Dophilus EPS are representatives of six different genera: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lacticaseibacillus, Lactiplantibacillus, Lactococcus, and Pediococcus. Some of the benefits of Jarro-Dophilus EPS probiotic products are that they help to protect the gastro-intestinal tract with a mixture of the most important Lactobacilli species, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus, L. casei, L. plantarum, and L. helveticus (acidophilus).* Bifidobacterium longum BB536 (Morinaga strain) has been shown in well-controlled clinical trials to support immune response and to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria.* BB536 also has been shown to reduce the production of IgE, which is related to a healthy histamine response.* Lactobacillus helviticus R0052 has been shown to support normal bowel function, as well as supporting gastrointestinal health.* Lactobacillus rhamnosus R0011 is a species, which prolifically produces unique polysaccharides which augment intestinal immune response and also facilitate probiotic colonization.* Administration of strains R0052 and R0011 together resulted in more normal bowel responses in children.* Pediococcus helps to support normal gut health and produces novel pediocins.* 

Requirements for Multi-Species Probiotic Success

There are several properties that are required from strains of lactic acid bacteria if these are to result in an efficient probiotic strain. No single strain can easily fulfill all these requirements. A mixture of species, therefore, is usually most suitable for supplementation. The most desirable properties of a good probiotic are:

  • Compatibility among the strains
  • Ability to survive passage through the digestive tract
  • Stability under normal gastric conditions
  • Resistance to bile salts
  • Adherence to intestinal mucosa
  • Colonization of the human intestinal tract
  • Safety with regard to human use
  • Production of natural pediocin substances*
  • Stability during storage under normal conditions 

5 Billion Organism Per Capsule

At the time of consumption, Jarro-Dophilus EPS supplies 5 billion viable organisms per capsule (when kept according to recommended storage conditions through the “Best Used Before” date). Even very hardy species of probiotics must be supplied in sufficient quantities if they are to properly colonize the gut. Advanced processing techniques permit the production of very concentrated sources of probiotic bacteria, which have been carefully selected for their complementary interaction with one another.

Enteric Coated to Protect Against Stomach Acid

The acidity of the stomach forms an important natural barrier against the entry of bacteria and yeasts into the rest of the digestive tract. However, this same barrier can impede the benefits of probiotic supplementation. Our Jarro-Dophilus EPS probiotic supplements are enteric coated capsules which bypass the acid barrier and therefore optimize the amount of friendly bacteria to the intestines. This results in superior probiotic benefits with fewer capsules.
