Creator and supplier of Dr. Shahani’s probiotic L. acidophilus
, Nebraska Cultures, Inc., Walnut Creek, CA, has launched ProDURA, a specific strain of Bacillus coagulans
. ProDURA is an unusual probiotic strain of spore-forming bacterium, with a naturally protective coating that stays dormant until it meets the perfect conditions of heat, pH and moisture found in the large intestine. Stabile in the gut and at room temperature for up to three years, it also survives at temperatures up to 100°C with almost no loss in potency, so it can be used in processed food, softgel, and gummy applications; and can even be stable for various applications at 200°C or more. Further, this novel probiotic inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli
.; produces the enzyme lactase; promotes weight gain and reduces the incidence of infection; lowers total cholesterol and LDL levels; raises HDL levels in the blood; and reduces the incidence of diarrhea and bacterial vaginosis (BV).
