The potential benefits of LactoSpore® in supporting digestive health may be attributed to its influence on factors such as maintaining gut flora balance and promoting digestive comfort.
Improves Gut Microflora
Probiotics are known to support the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Faecalibacterium prausnitzii in the human gut. This contribution to a balanced gut microbiota may aid in reducing the presence of toxins and potentially harmful bacterial and viral pathogens. A well-balanced gut flora is associated with overall digestive wellness. Additionally, probiotics may assist in the elimination of various substances, including acids and antibiotics, which could compete for colonization sites and nutrients in the digestive system (Keller et al., 2010).
Production of Short-chain Fatty Acids
Probiotic strains can produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), the benefits of which have been summarized in the figure below (Kasińska and Drzewoski, 2015).
Studies indicate that LactoSpore® can produce various SCFAs (acetate, butyrate and propionate) by fermenting plant-based fibers (Trigonella foenum-graecum, Lycium barbarum, Linum usitatissimum, Cocos nucifera, Zingiber officinale, Emblica officinalis, Plantago ovata and Vaccinium oxycoccos) (Majeed et al. 2016).
