Bacillus subtilis DE111®

DE111 has the ability to crowd out pathogens and increase levels of good bacteria. In clinical studies, DE111 has shown significant improvement in bowel movement type and frequency. DE111’s durability makes it less sensitive to pH level (acidic fluids), heat and antibiotics which can all kill the good bacteria. It also germinates in the gut within hours of taking it so it starts working for you from day 1. DE111 helps keep gut microbiota in balance so it can respond effectively. When our immune system gets attacked by pathogens, our body can show signs of inflammation on skin, such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.

Additionally, Researchers have found that taking DE111 in conjunction with adequate post-workout nutrition can reduce body fat percentage and promote post-workout tissue recovery.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG helps with intestinal barrier function and reduces occasional diarrhea, constipation, and gas and bloating. When we are constipated, our body can re-absorb the toxins from our stool, resulting in skin breakouts. Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG produces lactic acid, which helps lower the gut pH creating an unwanted environment for harmful bacteria. Pathogens can attack our immune system and increase inflammation and skin issues. Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG also helps with immune function regulation. Our body’s natural immune system sends out different antibodies to trigger immune responses, which may trigger breakout on skin.

Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14

Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14 is a strain originating from a healthy human gut. La-14 produces lactic acid, which helps lower the gut pH creating an unwanted environment for harmful bacteria. Pathogens can attack our immune system and increase inflammation and skin issues. Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14 may also support immune regulation. Our body’s natural immune system sends out different antibodies to trigger immune responses, which may trigger breakout on skin. In a human study, La-14 has shown to promote a faster induction of IgA and IgG after taking it for 28 days. IgA is an antibody found in the lining of the respiratory tract and digestive system. IgG is one of the most common antibodies found in blood and body fluids.

Lactobacilli is a dominant genus in healthy vaginal microbiota. Women with bacterial vaginosis have much lower levels of lactobacilli in their vagina. Replenishing Lactobacilli, such as L. acidophilus La-14 would help build a healthy vaginal microbiota. Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14 has been studied together with Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 (which is in our Women Probiotic) for a healthy vaginal environment and microbiome balance. Women with BV had a significant reduction in recurrence after taking La-14 and HN001 monthly after antibiotic treatment.
