Lactobacillus acidophilus NAS is a strain developed by Natren Inc in California, USA and is sold only in their products. It has outside research to support it as a probiotic. It has the properties attributed to most L. acidophilus, including that of being a lactic acid bacteria.
According to company records:
Coming soon! For more information on the specifics of the probiotic L. acidophilus NAS, including details of what studies have shown for the strain and at which dosages and duration, download "The Lactobacillus acidophilus NAS Guide."
I can help you decide if this probiotic strain is suitable for you to try. If you do try it, I still recommend that you use it as part of a probiotic/beneficial microbes support plan including naturally fermented foods and drinks and probiotic-fortified foods and drinks.
In the US, Lactobacillus acidophilus NAS is found in Natren probiotics. Unlike many manufacturers, Natren only produces probiotics and their manufacturing practices are certified by a third-party international agency. They produce their probiotics in a pharmaceutical-grade facility and do their own culture maintenance, oil-encapsulation and freeze-drying process. Every step of the way is performed under continuous refrigeration to ensure maximum product life. The products are bottled in dark amber-glass with tin lids to prevent moisture and light from harming the products.
When you buy directly from Natren via my links, they always ship their probiotics with 2-day air shipping with blue ice and both blue ice and dry ice during hot summer months in specially-designed, thermally-controlled boxes to protect the potency. Natren does everything it can to guarantee that your probiotics will perform at their optimum levels through the expiration date on the label. That is why the links below will take you to the Natren website.
Another option for purchase in the US, Vitacost, is also listed below. Vitacost stores this product in the refrigerated section of their warehouse and will ship refrigerated probiotics with a cold pack. They recommend that you choose 1- or 2-day shipping.
Sorry, I do not have a resource for international readers.
