Lactobacillus bulgaricus

Lactobacillus bulgaricus is a gram-positive bacterium that is commonly used in the production of fermented dairy products such as yoghurt and kefir. It is a lactic acid bacterium and produces lactic acid as a by-product of its metabolism.

Lactobacillus bulgaricus has been studied for its potential health benefits and research on Lactobacillus bulgaricus has shown that it can have a range of beneficial effects, such as decreased triglycerides, LDL levels and total cholesterol, increasing immunity and fighting viruses, decreasing leaky gut symptoms, diarrhoea, nausea, and inflammation, improving digestion of dairy products, managing HIV symptoms, and fighting dyspepsia, as well as reducing tooth decay. Additionally, it has also been shown to help improve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms (1).

If pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your health care practitioner before using this product.

Epigenetics probiotic Lactobacillus bulgaricus is produced in a vegan friendly and convenient delayed release capsule. Recommended daily dose is 1 serving per day taken after a meal, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. This product is not intended to be used as an alternative to a varied diet.

Lactobacillus bulgaricus is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract. This bacterium is helpful in regulating the gut environment and restoring the balance of the gut flora (2). Recent evidence suggests that certain strains of Lactobacillus can play a role in maintaining a healthy gut barrier by helping to prevent leaky gut (3). This is achieved by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria that can lead to an increase in gut permeability. Additionally, Lactobacillus may help to regulate the body’s inflammatory response, which can further aid in leaky gut prevention. By restoring the balance of the gut flora and promoting gut barrier maintenance, Lactobacillus can help to reduce the risk of various gastrointestinal problems, including leaky gut.

Lactobacillus bulgaricus may help to relieve symptoms associated with IBS. Studies have found that it can reduce symptoms of diarrhoea, and can help with nausea and vomiting (4,5,6). It is useful in both preventing and treating diarrhoea and nausea due to its ability to restore the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Lactobacillus bulgaricus produces lactic acid which helps to reduce inflammation which thereby improves the absorption of nutrients and reduces the production of harmful bacteria in the intestines.

Likewise, Lactobacillus bulgaricus has been used to improve the digestion of dairy products. It is naturally found in certain fermented dairy products such as kefir, and it has the ability to breakdown proteins, peptides, and transport amino acids (7). It also aids in the digestion of lactose (8) and several studies have shown that consumption of yoghurt and other dairy products which contain Lactobacillus bulgaricus can greatly improve lactose digestion and tolerance in people who are lactose intolerant (9). This has led to Lactobacillus bulgaricus becoming a popular addition to dairy products for those looking for improved digestion.

Similarly, it has been shown to produce metabolites that help to promote healthy digestion and reduce symptoms of dyspepsia (10). It has also been studied for its role in improving the immune system, reducing the risk of infection, and aiding in the absorption of nutrients from digestion (11). Additionally, Lactobacillus bulgaricus has been found to play a role in the management of dental cavities by inhibiting the growth of cariogenic bacteria (12).
