Introduction to L. Lactis

Body Biotics™ SBO Probiotics Consortia™ — Introducing L. Lactis

(Note: At the end of last week’s blog I wrote that I would be posting information about
B. Licheniformis today.  However, in an effort to save the best for last, I have decided to
review, both,  B. Licheniformis and B. Subtilis together at the end of this series.  The nature
of these two bacteria strains is very special as they offer some very unique health benefits;
making them the “crowning jewel” in our dynamic SBO Probiotics ConsortiaTM.
These two strains are not commonly used in most other Probiotic formulas.  And, we
really want you to understand why they are so important to a fully functioning Probiotic.)


Let’s now discover the health benefits attributed to Lactococcus Lactis, or L. Lactis for short,
another important strain in our Body Bioticsâ„¢formula.
According to Wikipedia, Lactococcus lactis “…is a Gram-positive bacterium used
extensively in the production of buttermilk and cheese, but has recently also become
famous as the first genetically modified organism to be used alive for the treatment of
human disease…”1
(Note: our bacterial strains are not GMO, they are organic and derived from ancient soil.)

In Todar’s Online Textbook of Bacteriology, it states that “…L. Lactis is a microbe that is
informally classified as a Lactic Acid Bacterium. That is because it ferments milk sugar
(lactose) to lactic acid. Gram-positive and non motile, they do not form spores. L lactis
has two subspecies, lactis and cremoris, both of which are essential in manufacture of
many varieties of cheese and other fermented milk products… ”2  
“..L. Lactis are part of a group of bacteria called food grade or GRAS (generally regarded
as safe) bacteria. They have a stable, yet, adaptable metabolic structure and are resistant
to bacteriophage (viruses that infect bacteria). This ability allows them to survive in a
variety of environments…”3 “…In human treatment, lactoccocus bacteria are used in the
mucosal delivery of proteins that can prevent symptoms of digestive disorders…”3 “…
By ingesting live L. Lactis bacteria, you allow them to directly access the inflamed area to
harmlessly produce proteins that help reduce inflammation.”3
If you are interested in reading more about L. Lactis and the dynamic health benefits that
are currently being reported, go to resource number four to review studies documenting
positive results relating to varied bowel and digestive disorders. Results from these studies
make it easy to see why L. Lactis is another very important player in our Body Bioticsâ„¢ formula.

Stayed tuned next week when we discover the important health benefits of our next
bacteria strain, Lactobacillus Casei. Until then,

Healthiest of wishes to you,
