    • What are the benefits to having/taking products that are third-party tested and certified.

    DR7: Next Generation Probiotic for a Healthier Gut & Brain

    DR7: Next Generation Probiotic for a Healthier Gut & Brain

    02.10.21

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND
     

    Probiotic microorganisms have a long history of safe use and have been documented for various health benefits. Many strains of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) from the genera of Lactobacillus have been identified to possess probiotic properties. They have been much emphasized for their roles to regulate gut well-being. But recent evidence has illustrated the potential of LAB for brain health, ranging from neurodegenerative diseases to stress, memory and cognition.


    In this webinar you’ll learn about Lactobacillus plantarum DR7, a probiotic isolated from cow milk isolate in Penang, Malaysia, which demonstrates the ability to improve stress and anxiety symptoms as well as memory improvement. In addition, DR7 effected a reversal of symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s Disease in a fruit fly model, accompanied by distinct changes of gut microbiota profiles.

    The administration of DR7 for 12-weeks in stressed adults has contributed to improve stress and anxiety scores, in addition to memory and cognitive abilities, primarily via enhancement along the serotonin pathway and maintenance of the dopamine pathway.

    Gut microbiota analyses of human subjects also showed correlations between changes in neurotransmitter genes and different taxonomic levels of gut microbiota along the serotonin and dopamine pathways. All these evidences involving various models, strongly indicated an effect of DR7 along the gut-brain-axis.
