A study demonstrating survival throughout the GI tract
In order to receive potential health benefits from probiotic organisms, they must survive passage through the gastrointestinal tract.
We’re revisiting a report from the @University of Nebraska, where researchers studied the ability of three Lactobacillus species to not only survive, but also persist in the human gastrointestinal tract. Read on to discover how our probiotic, the DDS-1 strain of L. acidophilus, fared against two microorganisms recognized as being native (autochthonous) to the human gastrointestinal tract, though not probiotic in nature. http://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?paperID=22771
A recent study suggests the best way to maintain high numbers of Lactobacillus probiotics in gastrointestinal tracts is through routine consumption. Click to view the full report about the persistence of our super strain, L. acidophilus DDS-1:
Though many consumers choose to regularly consume Lactobacillus through fermented dairy products, such as cheese and yogurt, whose manufacturers integrate the bacteria during food processing applications, consuming probiotics in supplement form is preferred if consumers hope to realize their potential health benefits.
