Jarro-Dophilus® EPS

Jarro-Dophilus EPS® is a shelf stable, multi strain probiotic designed to deliver probiotics to where they are needed. Jarro-Dophilus EPS® helps support the health of the entire intestinal tract, with a mixture of eight different species represented by four different genera: lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, lactococcus, and pediococcus.

8 Clinically Documented Probiotic Strains

Jarro-Dophilus EPS® provides 8 unique, research validated probiotic strains selected for complementary functions to support intestinal and immune health.* While most probiotics can’t survive stomach acid, Jarro-Dophilus® EPS capsules are coated with EnteroGuard®, a food-grade, pH balanced coating that ensures probiotics stay alive through stomach acid.

Supporting the Entire Gut Microbiome

The intestines range from a relatively alkaline environment (pH) of the small intestine to an increasingly acidic environment in the large intestine. No one strain of bacteria can provide benefits throughout the entire length of the alimentary canal. This is the reason that Jarrow Formulas’ Jarro-Dophilus EPS® supplies 8 different strains. Jarro-Dophilus EPS® helps to safeguard and preserve the health of the entire intestinal tract with its multi-strain formula.*

Lactobacillus rhamnosus

Lactobacillus casei

Bifidobacterium longum

Bifidobacterium breve

Lactobacillus helveticus

Pediococcus acidilactici

Lactobacillus plantarum

Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis R1058

Strains Matter™

Strain designation is important for identifying the specific probiotic in a product, the benefits of the probiotic, and what the count should be. A strain identifier can be a unique letter and number code that follows the genus (Lactobacillus) and species (crispatus). Typically, looking up a strain in Pubmed.gov or a general search engine will bring up all the studies associated with it.

Avoid probiotics that are not strain identified; you cannot be assured of their effectiveness. Think of it this way: Asking for Lactobacillus rhamnosus is like asking for “some” cheese, while asking for Lactobacillus rhamnosus R0011 is like asking for Pappillion Roquefort.

Multi-Strain, Multi-Gain

There are several properties that are required from strains of lactic acid bacteria, if these are to result in an efficient probiotic. 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 include:

  • 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
  • Production of Natural Antimicrobial Substances*
  • Antagonism Against Unfriendly and Putrefactive Bacteria*
  • Stability During Storage Under Normal Conditions

Enhanced Delivery System:

Probiotics That Stay Intact and Ready to Act

Jarro-Dophilus EPS® special delivery system ensures that a maximum number of viable cells are delivered into the intestinal tract, where they can fully exert their beneficial effects.*

EnteroGuard: pH-Sensitive, Food Grade Protection Against Stomach Acid

The acidity of the stomach forms an important natural barrier against the entry of bacteria into the rest of the digestive tract.

Shelf Stable

Jarro-Dophilus EPS® is Shelf Stable due to its stability at room temperature and its enteric coating delivery system, which protects the beneficial probiotic strains while in transit through the stomach’s acidic environment.*
