Lactobacillus lactis is a stable but adaptable metabolic organism which is able to thrive in the harsh environment of the human gastrointestinal tract.
- This probiotic bacteria, often included on ingredient panels as L. lactis, is most frequently used in formulas specifically designed to treat or reduce certain diarrheas, and in formulas designed to be taken every day. L. lactis is an ideal candidate for probiotic use because it supports the function of other Lactobacillus organisms, taking on some of the general workload, thereby enabling the other probiotic agents to focus more specifically on specialty functions at which they are most effective at treating.
- Lactobacillus lactis colonizes the GI tract by inhibiting the growth and proliferation of pathogenic bacteria. This probiotic is frequently taken by those diagnosed with chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
