Together, let’s put an end to deteriorating health

L. casei rhamnosus & gut integrity

Dear Friends,

Another example for taking probiotics each morning. Many of our probiotic formulas carry L. casei rhamnosus.

In a 2010 study Fang et al. demonstrated the probiotic L. casei rhamnosus’s possible therapeutic effects:

  • its ability to inhibit the secretion of IL-8, a major pathogen-elicited epithelial chemoattractant of the inflammatory responses in salmonellosis. This means that the probiotic L. casei rhamnousus inhibits the reaction in our bodies caused by Salmonella’s endotoxin LPS (a specific toxic material from Salmonella’s cell wall).
  • its beneficial effect upon the re-establishment of the intestinal epithelial barrier function after inflammation. L. casei rhamnosus protects the tight junctions of the intestinal wall to maintain cell-wall integrity.

Salmonella caused GI tract infection is an increasingly serious issue.  “It causes more hospitalizations and more death than any other foodborn illness.  It causes a million cases of food poisoning every year in the US, and over the last decade or so the number of cases has increased by 44% particularly among children and the elderly.  The number one cause of Salmonella poisoning—chicken!”  (See Nutrition March 13, 2015)

Fang et al. 2010. Inhibitory effects of lactobacillus casei subsp. rhamnosus on Salmonella lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation and epithelial barrier dysfunction in a co-culture model using Caco-2/peripheral blood mononuclear cells., J.Med Microbiol, 59(5), 573-579.

Again, we are seeing the pathogenic power of the endotoxin LPS (lipopolysaccharide) as we have in the two previous emails, this time caused by Salmonella.  And, we are seeing the protective power of good bugs (probiotics) and fiber—the very fibers and well established probiotic bacteria we employ in our Therapeutic Food Synbiotic Formulas.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

Clinical Note:

The Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic, the Original Synbiotic Formula, the Supernatant Synbiotic Formula, the Cranberry Pomegranate Synbiotic Formula and the No. 7 Systemic Booster all carry the Lactobacillus casie spp. rhamnosus in their arsenal.  Try them.  They are all very powerful probiotic (synbiotic) products.

The Last Quiz Answer:

There are more that 900 species of bats on earth.  This makes bats the second most diverse species of mammals.

This creature belongs to a species of bats known as the megabats, with wingspans of five feet.

Like bees in other places, these creatures are the pollinators and seed dispersers of the islands in the tropic Pacific.
