All probiotics help with improving digestive health, but Lactobacillus casei or L. casei in particular is one of the most extensively studied strains for its ability to regulate the digestive system.
L. casei has a wide pH and temperature range, which allows it to survive in the GI tract. It also complements the growth of L. acidophilus, a producer of the enzyme amylase (a carbohydrate-digesting enzyme).
Digestive issues are mostly attributed to not having enough good bacteria in the gut, which is why adding L. casei to your diet can be beneficial. L. casei may have some effect on the following digestive problems:
- Crohn’s disease
- inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- lactose intolerance
- ulcerative colitis
- diarrhea (infectious diarrhea, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea)
