Want to know what bacteria can do for you?

Hear what Professor Dr. Bonnie Bassler, the Faculty Director in Princeton University, New Jersey and the 2009 President of the American Society of Microbiology has to say.


As Prof. Bassler says,

  • Our body has more bacteria cells than human cells.
  • Our body’s bacteria are crucial to our health.
  • They are our invisible body armour.
  • They educate our immune system.
  • They communicate with each other using specific molecules unique to each strain.
  • They communicate with other bacterial species using another communication molecule.

Scientists and doctors now recognise that we can make use of the ability of bacteria to communicate with each other to control infections as well as promote health.

“...So, we’ve targeted those systems to make the molecules work better. Remember you have these 10 times or more bacterial cells in you or on you, keeping you healthy. What we’re also trying to do is to beef up the conversation of the bacteria that live as mutualists with you, in the hopes of making you more healthy, making those conversations better, so bacteria can do things that we want them to do better...”

 

Let LactoGG do the talking!

And one of the ways to “beef up the conversation” of the bacteria in and on our bodies is to make use of certain “human” strains of good bacteria called probiotics.

The human probiotic strain with the most scientific and clinical research in the world is called Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (ATCC 53103) or Lactobacillus GG.

The brand name is LACTOGG® ( pronounced “lac-toh-gee-gee).

Probiotics are live microorganisms, which when consumed in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.
