Streptococcus thermophilus

Streptococcus thermophilus is a powerful probiotic strain that has well-researched health benefits. This probiotic is often found in the colon and has many digestive, immunity and many other researched health benefits. Streptococcus thermophilus also produces antibiotics to prevent illness from infections like pneumonia and C. difficile while also helping to prevent ulcers.

Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. lactis and ssp. bulgaricus

Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. lactis and ssp. bulgaricus are lactic-acid-producing bacteria that are largely used in dairy industries, notably in cheese-making and yogurt production.

Lactobacillus acidophilus

Lactobacillus acidophilus, consumed on its own, in milk or yogurt, or in combination with prebiotics may help lower cholesterol. It produces lactic acid, which may prevent harmful bacteria from colonizing the intestines. It also ensures the lining of the intestines stays intact. L. acidophilus can increase the amounts of other healthy bacteria in the gut, including other lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. It can also increase levels of short-chain fatty acids, such as butyrate, which promote gut health. Another study carefully examined the effects of L. acidophilus on the gut. It found that taking it as a probiotic increased the expression of genes in the intestines that are involved in immune response.

Bifidobacterium lactis/Bifidobacteria

Bifidobacterium lactis/Bifidobacteria are commonly used for digestive issues such as diarrhea, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome; preventing the common cold or flu; and lots of other conditions, but firm scientific evidence is lacking to support many of these uses.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus

Lactobacillus rhamnosus is a type of friendly bacteria naturally found in the gut. Its health benefits include relieving IBS symptoms, treating diarrhea, strengthening your gut health, and protecting against cavities. L. rhamnosus is available as a probiotic supplement and found in some dairy products.

Bifidobacterium infantis

Bifidobacterium infantis is a lactic acid producing bacteria which can be found in fermented milk products. It has been shown to help reduce excessive inflammation which is a key characteristic or irritable bowel syndrome.

Lactobacillus fermentum

Lactobacillus fermentum has a number of different benefits such as reducing cholesterol and boosting immunity.

Lactobacillus paracasei

Lactobacillus paracasei is commonly found in fermented milk products such as Kefir. It has been shown to help in lowering the pain and intestinal distress caused by antibiotics.

Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris, subsp. lactic and subsp. lactis biovar. diacetylactis

Lactococcus lactis have been shown to boost immunity and all its subspecies aid in digestion, intestinal damage and overall better gut health. 

The subspecies are as follows;

    1. Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
    2. Lactococcus lactis subsp. Lactis
    3. Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar. diacetylactis
Leuconostoc mesenteroides

Leuconostoc mesenteroides plays the important role of product in flavour compounds and gas. It is mainly used in dairy fermentation such as yoghurt/kefir making.

Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides

Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides has the supporting role creating the environment in which the other bacteria’s growth will be improved.
