Strain specificity refers to the unique actions, properties, and characteristics of individual probiotic strains within the same species of bacteria. It is critical to understand that different strains of probiotic bacteria, even when belonging to the same species (e.g., Lactobacillus acidophilus) and sharing similar characteristics, may confer vastly different benefits when used as a therapeutic agent.
Probiotic bacteria of the species Lactobacillus reuteri have shown to benefit human health for several diverse disorders. Among the species of Lactobacillus reuteri, the specific strain - Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242 (LRCTM) - works to support healthy total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol through the production of bile salt hydrolase, an enzyme that deconjugates bile acids in the intestines.*
Cardio-Biotic LRC is a unique probiotic formulation containing therapeutic doses of Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242 (LRCTM) plus Coenzyme Q-10 (Co-Q-10).
