Lactobacillus plantarum or L. plantarum has a multitude of benefits on gut health. This probiotic strain has numerous antioxidant activities and also helps to maintain intestinal permeability.
L. plantarum is able to fight harmful pathogens and bacteria in our gut, thereby helping the healthy bacteria to survive and normalize digestive function.
The most significant activity, is its ability to extinguish gas-producing bacteria. This is especially important in helping to combat flatulence or gassiness, commonly associated with IBS.
