Lactobacillus bulgaricus is the only probiotic, named after a nation and a geographic territory. It is the first microorganism, selected by man thousands of years ago that has changed the human evolution. Lactobacillus bulgaricus is of vegetable origin, isolated from the green plants only on the territory of Bulgaria. In other regions of the world it mutates and stops its reproduction. In contrast to the other lactobacilli, it produces D (-) lactic acid, which determines its powerful antimicrobial, anti-carcinogenic, anti-atherosclerotic, antiallergic, antioxidative, ray-protective and other beneficial effects. Lactobacillus bulgaricus develops in symbiosis with other plant probiotic – Streptococcus thermophilus.
Their joint development leads to a mutual intensification and balancing of their favourable effects. If administered orally, the plant probiotics Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus quicken the development of Lactobacillus acidophilus, living in human and animal organisms. It is difficult for Lactobacillus acidophilus to develop on its own, its cells die easily and cannot reach the necessary amount. Symbiosis like this happens between the plant lactobacilli and the Bifidobacteria. Administered by food with the help of the lactobacilli they have a secondary reproduction in body, reaching the dose needed to heal the human organism.
