The Health Benefit of Lactic Acid Bacteria
The intestines are concentrated with immune functions that protects our body. Therefore, if the intestines are unhealthy, our immunity will be reduced and people will be more susceptible to various diseases. In addition, the brain and intestine are closely related, and if the intestinal environment worsens, the hormone secretion of the brain also worsens, which may affect the mind, leading to depressing mood. Lactic acid bacteria is responsible for organizing and protecting the intestine, an important organ for us.
Lactic Acid Bacteria is Recommended for Solving Many Health Problems
When bad bacteria increase in the intestine, stool becomes stagnant and constipated. By taking lactic acid bacteria continuously, the intestinal balance will be improved and the intestine is activated, leading to the resolution of constipation.
The intestine is said to be the largest immune organ in the human body, and adjusting the intestinal environment leads to a body that is less susceptible to diseases.
If the intestinal environment deteriorates due to a bad eating habit, aging, or extreme diet, there will be a reduction in humoral immunity (Th2), causing allergic symptoms. By adjusting the intestinal flora balance with lactic acid bacteria, Th2 runaway can be suppressed and the painful symptoms can be improved. “Kimoto lactic acid bacteria” contained in lactic acid bacteria powder is expected to have an inhibitory effect on allergy.
Eighty to ninety percent of serotonin, a happy hormone that makes you feel calm and relaxed, is actually made in the intestine. Serotonin's role in the gut is to stimulate peristaltic movements of the large intestine to defecate. When serotonin secretion decreases, bowel movements slow down and become constipated. If constipation persists, serotonin secretion in the brain and intestines deteriorates, and both the mind and the body become sick. Lactic acid bacteria not only help us stay healthy physically but also mentally.
Acne and breakouts are prominent when constipation occurs. When constipation happens, bad bacteria become active in the intestine, causing spoilage and toxic gas. This can cause skin troubles around the whole body through the capillaries of the mucous membrane in the intestine. These skin problems will be completely resolved if constipation is resolved by taking lactic acid bacteria.
A high-fat diet that worsens the intestinal environment can cause colorectal cancer as well as dyslipidemia, which can cause stroke and heart disease. Dyslipidemia is a condition in which the amount of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood is too high. Lactic acid bacteria work by adsorbing on bile acids, which are the source of cholesterol, help the body to excrete it and lower the cholesterol level.

Because I had constipation and atopic dermatitis, I wanted to improve my intestinal health and purchased it. I take it continuously every day, and I no longer have troubles going to the bathroom. I'm very delighted and surprised!
I use it regularly. My constipation gradually improved, and my weight naturally dropped. I feel much more effective than trying to overdo it on my diet.
If I can’t go to the bathroom for a week, I usually rely on laxatives, but in the end that's not always enough for me. When I tried lactic acid bacteria powder, I finally can go to the toilet regularly. I am so surprised of how good the effect is.
It has almost no taste so I could drink it easily. I can feel the improvement on my body since my stomach problem gradually got better. I was pretty worried, so I’d like to continue using this for a while and see the outcome.
