Is Lactobacillus Faithful to Nature?


Lactobacillus type probiotics are natural organisms with very important health implications. However, there are hundreds of different types of Lactobacillus bacteria and research into this new field is ongoing.

Benefits: Why is Lactobacillus Used?

Internal Balance

Lactobacillus type probiotics support healthy digestion and gut microbiome.

Strong Defence

Lactobacillus type probiotics support healthy immune function through the process of competitive exclusion.

Glowing Skin

Lactobacillus type bacteria produce lactic acid - which may promote even skin tone and pigmentation.

Mental Health

Emerging research shows that Lactobacillus may help in preventing depression!

Lactobacillus type bacteria can be found in probiotic supplements, some cutting-edge skincare ranges and in many fermented foods. Some of the most common fermented foods include yoghurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha and kefir.

Lactobacillus type probiotics occur naturally in fermented foods. Many Lactobacillus type bacteria also survive the curing process on cheeses. However, the strains of Lactobacillus found in probiotic supplements are typically cultured under highly controlled, laboratory conditions where extreme care and sanitary precautions are taken to ensure no competing, potentially harmful bacteria can thrive.

Research into Lactobacillus type probiotics have wide-reaching implications for mental health, blood-sugar regulation, and inflammatory disorders too.
