Lactic acid bacteria are a well-studied group of beneficial bacteria with multiple documented health benefits. Lactobacillus acidophilus is the most well-known species of lactic acid bacteria, as it occurs in yogurt and many other foods. Produced from sterilized cells of a proprietary strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus, L-92 is a patented, powdered food ingredient that has been studied in both adults and children.

Winner of the NutrAward for Best Functional Ingredient in 2016, the GRAS ingredient L-92 has been shown in placebo-controlled human clinical research to:
  • Promote dermal health, moisture, and comfort*[1]
  • Provide seasonal support for the health of the nasal mucosa*[2]
  • Provide seasonal support for ocular comfort*[3]

    MECHANISM OF ACTION

    Lactobacillus acidophilus is believed to help balance cytokine levels.* Specifically, it may help tip the balance from excitatory to inhibitory cytokines by lowering levels of immunoglobin E in the blood, thus modulating the ratio between T-helper type 1 cells and T-helper type 2 cells.*[4],[5] 

    SAFETY

    Lactic acid bacteria occur naturally in the human gut. They are used as starters for fermented dairy and non-dairy foods such as yogurt, butter, cheese, kefir, wine, and sauerkraut, and so are widely consumed. In addition, they have been extensively tested for safety and efficacy in human subjects.
