Superstrain LRC ™
Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242
Our patented superstrain Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242, or LRC™, is the first clinically proven heart health probiotic and the #1 Cardiologist Preferred! It has been shown to naturally support healthy cholesterol levels in multiple gold standard, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trials.
LRC™ is clinically proven to:
- NATURALLY support healthy TOTAL CHOLESTEROL levels
- NATURALLY support LDL-CHOLESTEROL levels
- Support the body’s production of VITAMIN D
- Support healthy levels of hs-CRP & FIBRINOGEN
- Support overall digestive health
How It Works
LRC™ supports healthy total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels in two ways:
- By supporting the body’s natural elimination of cholesterol.
- By helping to maintain the normal amount of cholesterol the body produces
It does this by producing an enzyme called bile salt hydrolase that deconjugates (breaks apart) bile acids. These bile acids are natural detergents made by the liver from cholesterol and are released into the intestine with the purpose of transporting dietary fat and cholesterol into the circulation. As bile acids are deconjugated by LRC in the intestines, dietary and biliary cholesterol absorption is normalized and the recirculation of bile is altered resulting in support of LDL-C levels in blood.
This scientifically validated strain can easily be added to supplements or food & beverage items to create a heart healthy product people will enjoy taking.
