Lactobacillus bulgaricus & Lactobacillus acidophilus

With Streptococcus lactis, this is the only natural culture used to make yoghurt.

They are "friendly" bacteria, which naturally occur in the gut and inhibit the growth of the candida albicans yeast (thrush).

They can alleviate, and even prevent, a wide range of conditions including constipation, flatulence and the aforesaid vaginal yeast infections.

Their main antagonists are antibiotics, so when taking these, it"s important to replenish the body by eating "live" yoghurt and possibly taking acidophilus capsules. See 'Alternative Medicine'
