An European study has shown that lactic bacteria is an effective and potent antifungal. Accordingly, it would be effective for the treatment and eradication of Candida. At the same time, it would benefit the user by bringing balance back to the intestinal flora and prevent re-infection due to the colonizing effects of the LAB in LB17 live probiotic

THE ROLE OF LACTIC BACTERIA IN THE PREVENTION AND THE TREATMENT OF DISEASES:
Among the most important are: Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bifidus, L. bulgaricus, L casei, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum, L. fermentum. L. salivarius, Streptococcus thermophilus and Streptococcus faecium. They inhibit the proliferation and the activities of pathogenic bacteria in several ways.
By the production of lactic acid:
Harmful and pathogenic bacteria cannot develop in an acidic environment
By the production of specific antibiotics:
Lactobacillus acidophilus produces acidophiline, L bulgaricus produces bulgarican, other lactobacilli produce lactocidine, lactobacilline, hydrogen peroxide, bacterial peptides, lactic streptococci produce nisin and streptococcins. These are all anti-septic to pathogenic bacterium.
It has been shown that lactic bacteria, in particular Streptococcus faecium, colonize the intestinal mucosa preventing its attachment by other harmful microbes. This protects the integrity of the digestive system eliminating the onset of many digestive disorders.
Comments from healthcare professionals who have used LB17:
"... I have been using different probiotic blends over the years. The best I found by far is LB17. The ... more strands of different friendly bateria, the better the probiotic. It has been my experience that LB17 covers every area of body fluids from the sinuses to the reproductive organs which give LB17 a great advantage over any other probiotic. My patients love the small size of the capsules and I have used LB17 with great success on open wounds and stubborn acne by ... applying ... directly to the wound.
... be happy to recommend LB17 to any health practitioner."..
