Lactobacillus sporogenes is a key probiotic. It binds with other beneficial microorganisms in the human gut and aids in the digestion of food, regulation of metabolism and production of vitamins. Lactobacillus sporogenes maintains the effective functioning of the intestines and promotes healthy intestinal function by producing lactic acid. The bacterium is effective against a range of gastrointestinal disorders (including diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and ulcers) and improves the symptoms of stomach acidity and lactose intolerance. Lactobacillus sporogenes maintains a healthy balance of microflora in the gut and support the growth of similar beneficial bacteria. Lactobacillus sporogenes is known to reduce cholesterol levels. According to C.S.K. Mishra in the book “Biotechnology Applications,” patients administered with Lactobacillus sporogenes over a three-month period showed a 32 percent reduction in total cholesterol level and a 35 percent reduction in the LDL cholesterol (or bad cholesterol) level. It inhibits the production of the HMG CoA Reductase, which is an enzyme known to produce cholesterol. Lactobacillus sporogenes is an immune system booster and is effective in treating colds and flu. It equips the body to form natural defenses against a host of disease-causing microorganisms and foreign particles. It boosts the immune system to provide defense against inflammations, hemorrhoids, and sinusitis. Lactobacillus sporogenes also can be effective against allergies. Lactobacillus sporogenes is a source of various beneficial enzymes such as amylase, lactase, and cyclo-malto-dextrin glucano-transferase. Lactobacillus sporogenes is sometimes added to animal food to improve feed utilization, improve growth rate, and reduce diseases. Lactobacillus sporogenes inhibits the growth of harmful pathogens. It has anti-mutagenic properties and prevents harmful microorganisms from multiplying and forming new, disease-causing strains. Unlike antibiotics, probiotics can distinguish between non-pathogenic, beneficial microorganisms and harmful microorganisms. Lactobacillus sporogenes scans and identifies all opportunistic pathogens and isolates and kills them.
