“Probiotics are live bacteria that line your digestive tract, often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because of their overall supportive role in helping to restore the composition of the gut microbiome—by creating an ideal environment and introducing beneficial functions like nutrient absorption, healing of digestive issues, supporting overall brain health, help fight certain allergic conditions and infections.”
What is LactoSpore® ?
Probiotics are one of the few supplements that are popularized as a way to maintain ones health, as a whole. LactoSpore® is one such clinically validated and commercial probiotic preparation from Sabinsa, containing L(+) lactic acid producing microbial preparation from Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856 (earlier known to be Lactobacillus sporogenes).
How do Probiotics Work?
Mechanisms responsible for healthful effects of probiotics have not been uncovered completely, yet. However, beneficial effects of probiotics, especially in conditions related to gut health may be attributed to: i) improved gut microflora and ii) production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), which further helps counter low-grade inflammation.
The health benefits and the safety of a probiotic strain largely depend up on the strain, and not the species or genus, hence validating the safety aspects of a probiotic strain is vital. LactoSpore® was found to be safe and well tolerated by healthy individuals when ingested orally.
Although probiotics have been well recognized since long for their support of overall digestive health, in the recent time, these “friendly” bacteria have been found to do much more than solely aiding digestion! Several studies have suggested their supportive role in managing immune system, irritable bowel syndrome, weight management and even cholesterol management.
Sabinsa’s LactoSpore® has been selected by Wellspring Industry, Inc., USA to provide the beneficial probiotic ingredient for Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt, the world’s top selling self-serve frozen yogurt brand.
LactoSpore® has a wide range of benefits in the form of nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals and nutricosmetics, the latter is an emerging category in the field of skin health.
Across the globe, about 20 probiotic strains, singly or in combination, mainly Lactobacilli species as well as safe spore-forming lactic acid producing bacteria are used in dietary supplements and functional foods or in mainstream food products.
Sabinsa Corporation receives the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status for its branded probiotic ingredient, LactoSpore®, after a comprehensive review of safety and toxicology data.
