Lactobacillus Gasseri


This strain of bacteria helps lower cholesterol, and prevents diabetes.

Lactobacillus Gasseri is normally located in the vagina and Gastrointestinal tract.

Research links this bacteria with helping reduce after meal and fasting fatty acid levels, ultimately decreasing the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus[1], decreasing the risk of infections of neonate during vaginal delivery at birth[2], and improving plasma and total LDL cholesterol levels[3].
