Emotional & physical equilibrium

When gut and brain communicate…

Probiotic applications have recently gone beyond the gut looking at associations in the area of mood and stress.

At one point or another, everyone has experienced the relationship between the brain and gut; this dialogue in our bodies has brought about the name “our second brain”. The bidirectional dialogue that coordinates brain and gut functions has been described as the “brain-gut axis”. It now appears that the microbiota, and hence probiotics capable to interact with this microbiota, play a role in this dialogue. This class of probiotics that produces a health benefit in patients suffering from psychiatric illness,  has been recalled  “psychobiotics” by J.Cryan ‘s team .

Recent studies have shown that microbiota manipulation can even influence behaviour in animals (Bercik et al. , 2011). Lallemand released the first clinical studies showing that a probiotic blend (L. helveticus Rosell-52 and B. longum Rosell-175) can alleviate both physiological and psychological signs of stress and anxiety (Diop et al., 2008; Messaoudi et al., 2011). Various health concerns are highlighted : gastro-intestinal disorders, anxiety, stress-related disorders, mood disorders

  •  Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell-52
  • Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175

 

All of our strains in Lallemand Health Solutions’ collection have been clearly identified and documented based on their principal properties and health Benefits.

Reliable Strains

Having conducted extensive research over the past 80 years, Lallemand Health Solutions has assured its strains are safe for human consumption. Today, the company’s commitment to safety is as firm as ever, and it continues to focus particular attention on such areas as genome decryption, resistance to antibiotics, and in vivo toxicological studies, among others.

Stable Strains

Lallemand Health Solutions’ strains are carefully selected not only for their health benefits, but also for their ability to survive through their arrival at their action site. In that regard, the company has developed an ongoing research program for improving the production and formulation of its products in order to provide the organism with the number of bacteria it needs, where it needs them.

Documented Strains

Lallemand Health Solutions scientifically documents its strains internally, but also through its numerous partnerships with the scientific community.

Strains Innovations:

Some of our strains have been pushed in the R&D process, and can be offered in different versions :
– Non Dairy strains (ND) :
Probiocap® Microencapsulated strains (ME)

 


 

Glossary

The Lactobacillus genus encompasses more than 25 species and includes a diverse range of organisms. These organisms are strictly fermentative, aerotolerant or anaerobic and have complex nutritional requirements. Using glucose as a carbon source, lactobacilli are either homofermentative (more than 85% of their formulation is of lactic acid) or heterofermentative (production of lactic acid, carbon dioxide, ethanol or acetic acid).

Main characteristics:

  • Maintain a healthy and balanced intestinal microbiota and reduce the incidence of intestinal infections.
  • Are often recommended for the prevention of intestinal microbiota problems and diarrhea related to antibiotic treatment.
  • Contribute to the modulation of specific and non-specific immune defenses.

The Bifidobacterium genus is gram-positive, anaerobic and often ramified. It is the predominant bacterial group in the intestinal flora of healthy newborns that are breastfed, representing more than 95% of all bacteria present. However, the number of these organisms diminishes with time (starting from weaning) to eventually represent an average of 25% of a healthy individual’s intestinal flora.

Main characteristics :

Several studies have clearly identified that bifidobacteria can be effective in the prevention and reduction of diarrheas related to antibiotic treatment or resulting from the rotavirus in children. Anaerobic bacteria belonging to the Bifidobacteria sub-family are also beneficial for the well-being of the host, both during childhood and in later stages of life.
Moreover, they contribute to the modulation of specific and non-specific immune defenses.

Lallemand Health Solutions has developed custom-tailored and ready-to-market formulas for Physical & Emotional equilibrium :

Probio’Stick® :
Blend of : Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, combining patented micro-encapsulation Probiocap®
