Lactobacillus Caseii is closely related to Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Rhamnosus. It secretes “peptidoglycan”, which supports the natural defences of the body and stimulates immune responses in the intestinal tract.
- Increases circulation of IgA (immunoglobulin A) in infants infected with rotavirus and concomitant bouts of diarrhea
- Exhibits immune-enhancing effects, by producing “bacteriocins” – compounds that restrict the growth of pathogens in the small intestine
- Resists digestive enzymes, easing its passage through the stomach
- Lessens winter infections in elderly persons (Journal of Nutrition Health and Aging, 2003)
