The clinical studies below were performed by independent laboratories focused on health science and digestive research:
Supports Healthy Cholesterol Already in the Normal Range
Microbiome Plus+ Probiotic NCIMB 30242 LRC is very unique because it is considered a “heart healthy probiotic” and it is the only probiotic that has been clinically proven to support healthy LDL cholesterol already in the normal range.
Cholesterol lowering and inhibition of sterol absorption by Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242: a randomized controlled trial.
Supports Healthy Already Normal Vitamin D Levels
Low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D is a risk factor for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Many people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, and our unique probiotic has been shown to support already normal vitamin D levels.
Probiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242 increases mean circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D: a post hoc analysis of a randomized controlled trial.
Improves Gastrointestinal Health
Microbiome Plus+ Probiotic NCIMB 30242 LRC has been proven in a human clinical trial to considerably improve gastrointestinal health. Subjects in the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study reported significant GI health improvement.
Improvement of gastrointestinal health status in subjects consuming Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242 capsules: a post-hoc analysis of a randomized controlled trial.
Maintains Healthy Bile Metabolism
Microbiome Plus+ Probiotic NCIMB 30242 LRC enhances the production of an enzyme called bile salt hydrolase by promoting a healthy gut microbiome, which facilitates healthy bile metabolism. Bile is involved in digestion of food, absorption of fat, absorption of cholesterol, removal of cholesterol from the body, production of hormones, absorption of vitamins, production of vitamins, and act on receptors found to be essential in weight management and glucose metabolism.
