Our policy at Nutritional Concepts is to periodically assay the nutraceuticals we dispense for safety and efficacy. If a product does meet our requirements, we stop carrying the product.
An assay done by an independent laboratory confirmed that the most recent batch of UAS Labs DDS-100 Acidophilus capsules DID NOT meet label claim. The amount of active cultures for two capsules came in below the 2 billion listed on the label.
We have told UAS Labs of our intentions to suspend dispensing their product until they can prove through independent lab testing that their product meets label claim.
1. If you are treating an existing yeast issue with the UAS Labs, switch to Metagenics Ultra Acidophilus DF in powder form. If you are currently taking eight capsules or less of UAS Labs daily, you only need to take ½ teaspoon daily of the Ultra Acidophilus. We spent many hours researching other dairy-free alternative to UAS Labs. The only product that had similar ingredients and better research data was Metagenics Ultra Acidophilus.
2. For everyone else taking UAS Labs, switch to Metagenics Ultra Flora Plus DF capsule. You only need to take one capsule daily.
3. If you would like another option that is more readily available, you can go with Culturelle Lactobacillus GG, but unfortunately, it is not dairy-free and has chicory-root extract (a salicylate). Not recommended for those with previous or current yeast issues.
Please refer to the latest research on Lactobacillus Acidophilus NCFM, which is in the Metagenics Ultra Flora and Ultra Acidophilus.
