What Is It?
Lactobacillus sporogenes is a universally occurring beneficial bacteria. It is a gram-positive, spore-forming, lactic acid producing probiotic. Probiotics, such as L. sporogenes, support the growth of friendly bacteria and help maintain a healthy balance of microflora in the intestinal environment.*
Heat Stability: L. sporogenes does not require refrigeration to maintain its peak potency.*
Gastric Acid Resistance: L. sporogenes is better adapted to survive gastric acidity due to its spores. The spore coat protects the bacteria from the low pH of the stomach, but also swells in contact with the gastric juices such that by the time the bacteria reaches the intestine, it has shed its spore and germinates in the intestine.*
Uses For Lactobacillus Sporogenes
Intestinal Support: L. sporogenes supports levels of healthy microflora thereby improving the gastrointestinal ecology. It also produces only the L (+) form of lactic acid, which is completely metabolized in the body. L. sporogenes is only a semi-resident, which emphasizes the importance of continued supplementation.*
Healthy Lipid Metabolism: As the organism grows, it assimilates and incorporates cholesterol into its cellular structure, potentially maintaining healthy lipid metabolism in humans.*
What Is The Source?
L. sporogenes† is obtained from fermentation of a nutrient source. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Pure Encapsulations probiotic products contain a unique form of rice starch produced through a natural enzymatic process. This proprietary starch has been extensively tested and is added to protect the viability of the probiotic organisms.
†The taxonomical classification of L. sporogenes was revised in 1939 in the seventh edition of the Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology to B. coagulans, although some researchers continued to use the original name.
