By Eden Foods5 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- Seamless Microcapsule Delivery System
Eden Bifa-15 is a probiotic food supplement to balance and strengthen utilizing a unique, technologically advanced delivery system to introduce friendly Bifidobacteria to the large intestine.
The valuable mechanical feature of Eden Bifa-15 is its patented microcapsule delivery system. Other capsules are pre-formed, filled, sealed, and have an inherent weakness, a seam. Eden Bifa-15 microcapsules are filled and formed simultaneously providing a seamless surface that uniquely protects the fragile bacteria. Each tube of Eden Bifa-15 contains yellow bifidobacteria capsules, white lactobacillus capsules, and pleasantly flavored oligosaccharide sugar granules that help bifidobacteria thrive. The granules of oligosaccharides, their lemon oil and botanical essences, promote bifidobacteria growth and deliver a most refreshing taste experience. This combination of micro capsules and granules is easy to swallow. The easy to open tube is convenient to carry in your purse or pocket.
Seamless capsules protect the bacteria from air and their journey through the stomach acids. The capsules release bacteria only after reaching the large intestine - their natural 'home address.' Upon release lactobacillus vigorously cultivate the proper environment for bifidobacteria to flourish by producing lactic acid and beneficial nutrients. Each tube of Eden Bifa-15 delivers two billion living Bifidobactia longum, and one billion friendly lactic acid producing bacteria. As Bifidobacteria increases through regular consumption of Eden Bifa-15, harmful bacteria is suppressed, balance is restored, and functions necessary for health and proper digestion are strengthened.
Bifidobacterium longum is the most important beneficial intestinal bacteria. Together with the lactic acid producing bacteria, they are a critical factor in maintaining health. In our intestines, beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria coexist. Friendly bacteria help maintain a well functioning digestive system, while unfriendly bacteria can produce harmful substances like ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and amines. When Bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria decrease the healthy balance of the intestinal flora may become disrupted.
Bifidobacteria are obligate anaerobic bacterium, meaning it cannot thrive in the presence of oxygen. They are unique because they produce both acetic acid and lactic acid that can suppress unfriendly bacteria by maintaining an acidic pH in the intestine. They also produce vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, Biotin, folic acid, enzymes, and other nutrients. Lactic acid producing L. acidophilus and E. faecium, which are facultative anaerobic bacteria that can live in the presence or absence of oxygen, together with granules of oligosaccharides help to increase the activity and the longevity of Bifidobacterium longum. Studies have found a significant correlation between illness and depleted levels of Bifidobacteria.
In all human beings, Bifidobacteria levels peak during infancy and steadily decline with age. Antibiotics and other drugs such as steroids, synthetic hormones, and excessive use of over the counter medications, can deplete friendly bacteria producing an environment that promotes the growth of harmful bacteria. Bifidobacteria are also depleted by an unbalanced diet of excessive refined foods and animal fat. Irregular eating habits, caffeine, alcohol, and stress are other factors that also deplete friendly bacteria.
To take Eden Bifa-15 open the tube at the dotted end and pour it into your mouth. The plant essences give rise to saliva and allows you to easily swallow the capsules. Do not chew the capsules, as this will break the protective capsules. Do not drink with warm or hot liquids, which may weaken the protective capsules. Because Eden Bifa-15 is food and not a medicine, you do not have to worry about side effects or when to take it. It can be taken at any time of day since the capsules protect the bacteria from acids activated by food. You may increase use to 2 or 3 tubes a day as you wish. Every person is different. It takes about one month to stabilize the intestinal condition after you start regular use of supplemental Eden Bifa-15.
