In depth understanding of lactomin probiotic strains

Posted on03 Feb 2020
The present invention relates generally to a microbe composition comprising beneficial microorganisms of new strains and particularly to a symbiotic mixture of three lactic acid producing bacteria consisting of Bifidobacterium long 6-1, Lactobacillus acidophilus YIT 2004, and S faecalius YIT 0027.

The perfect combination of the three bacterium strains Bifidobacteriumlongum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus and S faecalis have been shown as being able to survive human stomach acidity as well as propagate at physiological levels of bile salts and adhere to the intestinal epithelial cells.
The combination of three bacterium strains has an advantage over single bacterium strain preparation since each of the three bacterium strains has its characteristics and specialised roles and is synergetic with each other.

Each bacterium strain will differentiate itself in the intestinal tract by finding its most favourable environment to survive the intense temperature and high concentrations of bile salts in the intestinal tract.

What happens When 3 Of The Most Effective Strains are combined?

As a result the combination is able to control pathogenic bacteria in the entire human intestine instead of only a part of it. This combination also produces and enhanced inhibitory capacity than that of a single bacterium preparation, that brings the beneficial strains into fast and steady play. It is also used in the treatment of acute and chronic diarrhoea, abdominal distention and constipation.

In addition the composition inhibits the growth of pathogens and/or potential pathogens in the intestines, promotes the decomposition and absorption of nutritions, provides essential vitamins, enhances the body immune system and reduces the absorption of intestinal toxin to ease the burden of the liver. The composition is highly useful for human beings. The invention also concerns new materials to protect the viability of the bacteria in lyophilized form. In addition the invention pertains to a method for culturing the microorganisms and preparing the microbe composition. The composition helps replenish the intestine with normal biological bacteria and adjust the balance of enteric bacterial species.

US Patent 6,368,591 B2 provides extensive studies on one of the most effective combination of probiotic strains of which makes up Lactomin Advance +.
