Lactobacillus Paracasei


This strain of bacteria helps reduce food allergies and eczema

Lactobacillus Paracasei is normally found in common dairy products, the mouth and the gut.

Research links this bacteria with preventing common food allergies in early childhood[1], helping reduce eczema in new borns, for pregnant women who have positive skin prick test[2], helping decrease the risk of allergies, despite allergic heredity[3], and helping prevent Salmonella infections[4].
