What is lactobacillus rhamnosus GG?
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG(also known as LGG) mostly exists in the intestinal tract of humans and animals. Bacterial taxonomy belongs to the genus Lactobacillus, subspecies Rhamnosus. It is a Gram-positive probiotic that is anaerobic, acid-resistant, and does not produce spores.
LGG has several features that distinguish it from other probiotics strains; First, LGG is highly acid-resistant, which gives it the ability to survive the acids and bile of the human stomach and intestine. Furthermore, LGG strains could adhere to mucosal structure and colonize the intestine, and exclude or reduce pathogenic adherence in a way to produce compounds antagonistic to pathogen growth. All these properties make LGG a particularly remarkable probiotic strain.
What are the functions of lactobacillus rhamnosus GG?
- Regulate gut flora
After LGG colonizes and reproduces in the human intestinal environment, it only attaches to the intestinal epithelial cells of the host and can become a biological barrier of the intestinal mucosa, thereby improving the barrier capacity of the host intestinal mucosa. Moreover, with the help of LGG, the community structure and function of the micro-ecosystem in the host intestine can be adjusted and brought to a balanced state, thereby achieving the purpose of improving the function of the host digestive tract system. Related studies have shown that the adhesion rate of LGG to adults is significantly higher than that of children, mainly because the intestinal environment of adults is more mature and suitable for LGG adhesion.
- Improve the body’s immunity
The human immune system can be divided into innate and adaptive immune systems. The innate immune system is mainly borne by macrophages and white blood cells. If the innate immune system malfunctions, the adaptive immune system will function. The two work together to complete the immunity to the human body. Once the host is traumatized or infected, it will lead to immune system dysfunction.
- Preventing and Treating Diarrhea
With the help of LGG, the prevention and treatment of diarrhea can be achieved. Related studies have shown that after 29 infants were orally administered LGG preparations and ordinary milk, LGG strains were detected in the feces of infants taking LGG. It shows that after taking it, the host can adjust the intestinal flora with the help of LGG, and the diarrhea treatment effect of infants taking LGG preparations is better than that of taking ordinary milk.
