Streptococcus Thermophilus


This strain of bacteria assists in liver repair, and prevents liver damage

Streptococcus Thermophilus is normally located in the GI tract.

Research links this bacteria with helping the central processing of the brain with emotions and sensations like pain[1], improving liver enzymes in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease[2], preventing bacterial vaginosis and Gardnerella vaginalis as well as reducing recurrence[3], and preventing upper airway infections[4].
