Microbiome + Lactobacillus Fermentum

Lactobacillus fermentum

Scientific studies show that there are three compelling reasons why a probiotic with Lactobacillus fermentum is recommended:

Safe and without side effects
Lactobacillus fermentum is an important bacterium found in breast milk and contributes significantly to the development of the gut microbiome in newborns. Many studies confirm that it is safe to use and has no unwanted side effects. Therefore, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has granted Lactobacillus fermentum the QPS status (Qualified Presumption of Safety). This indicates that it is considered safe for consumption.

Healthy development of the gut microbiome
If a mother is unable to breastfeed, Lactobacillus fermentum can be used as part of a "Balanced Diet" to promote a healthy gut flora in the infant. Such diets are special foods developed for medical purposes to ensure that infants receive the necessary nutrients when they cannot be covered by normal foods.

Therefore, the means for balanced diets must not be medicinal products, but are food without additives. Health must not be harmed by side effects. The commercially available product for balanced diets for non-breastfeeding mothers contains the bacterial culture Lactobacillus fermentum, 10^8 colony forming units, dissolved in 100% MCT oil.

Double benefit
If a mother can breastfeed, babies benefit twice from Lactobacillus fermentum if the mother takes a probiotic with Lactobacillus fermentum during pregnancy. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study from 2019 showed this. In 291 mother-child pairs, it was found that the 16-week intake of one capsule of Lactobacillus fermentum daily by the mother significantly influenced the gut microbiome and the health of the child.

*QPS stands for Qualified Presumption of Safety and is a procedure for safety assessment regarding microorganisms used in the food chain. QPS utilizes existing knowledge about the safety of certain microorganisms to distinguish those for which there are no concerns from those that may pose a risk and should be subjected to a full safety assessment.
