10 Health Benefits of L. Rhamnosus


Your body contains 10-100 trillion bacteria. While these bacteria are everywhere indoors and employment You, most of them live in your gut. They are known as germs and play an important role in maintaining optimal health. [1]

A healthy balance of gut bacteria comes with many health benefits, while an imbalance is associated with many diseases. [2, 3]

One of the most well-studied friendly bacteria is Lactobacillus rhamnosus (L. rhamnosus). Because of its well-understood array of health benefits, L. rhamnosus is available as a dietary supplement and is often added to dairy products for an extra boost.

Here at Purality Health, we have L. rhamnosus protected by the micelle liposomal delivery method, allowing the bacteria to reach your gut completely intact and ready to serve your health!

But what kind of benefits can you expect from growing L. rhamnosus?

Just keep reading to find out!

What is Lactobacillus rhamnosus?

Before diving into the benefits, we thought it would be helpful for you to learn more about L. rhamnosus.

Below, we have a list of fast facts so you can get to know these bacteria better!

  • ● L. rhamnosus is a type of bacteria that resides in your gut. 
  • ● It belongs to the genus lactobacillusa type of bacteria that produces the enzyme lactate. 
  • ● Bacteria of this genus, such as L. rhamnosus, are considered probiotics. 
  • ● Probiotics are live microorganisms that, when consumed, provide health benefits. [4] 
  • ● Hundreds of studies support the benefits of L. rhamnosus. 
  • ● Uniquely adapted to survive acidic and basic conditions within the body. 
  • ● These bacteria can also attach to and colonize the walls of the intestine. 
  • ● These characteristics give L. rhamnosus a high chance of survival, which means it can offer long-term benefits. [5, 6] 
  • ● There are different strains of L. rhamnosus each with different characteristics. [7] 
  • ● L. rhamnosus is often added to cheese to help ripen and enhance flavour. [8, 9]

 

Health benefits of L. rhamnosus

L. rhamnosus has been found not only beneficial to the digestive system, but many other areas of health.

lets take alook!

1. May prevent and treat diarrhea

It is not uncommon to have a bacterial infection that leads to diarrhoea. Most of the time, diarrhea is harmless and goes away on its own. However, if the diarrhea continues, it can cause fluid loss, which can lead to dehydration.

Fortunately, research has found that L. rhamnosus helps prevent and even treat certain types of diarrhea.

For example, antibiotics — which can be needed to fight infection — can often lead to digestive problems such as diarrhoea. But the presence of L. rhamnosus may be able to protect against this side effect. [10, 11]

A review of 12 studies in nearly 1,500 people found that taking L. rhamnosus supplements reduced the risk of antibiotic-related diarrhea by up to 22.4%. [12]

Because antibiotics can harm both good and bad bacteria in the gut, taking a probiotic such as L. rhamnosus during and after antibiotic use can restore healthy gut bacteria.

Moreover, L. rhamnosus may also be able to protect against different types of diarrhea, such as traveler’s diarrhea, acute watery diarrhea, and acute diarrhea associated with gastroenteritis. [13, 14, 15]

2. It may relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a digestive condition that affects 9-23% of adults worldwide. It causes uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, and unusual bowel movements. Although it is common, its cause is unfortunately unknown. [16]

However, researchers have found a link between IBS and the bacteria that live in the gut.

For example, people with IBS have been found to have fewer beneficial bacteria in their microbiome and higher levels of harmful bacteria, such as Escherichia coli. [17, 18]

Several studies have found that foods and supplements containing good bacteria such as L. rhamnosus can relieve common IBS symptoms in adults. [19, 20, 21]

Furthermore, animal studies have found that L. rhamnosus can strengthen intestinal barriers, helping to reduce symptoms of IBS. [22]

3. Gut health

Just like any other probiotic, L. rhamnosus is great for digestive health.

One reason L. rhamnosus is particularly beneficial for digestion is because it produces lactic acid. This is a substance that prevents harmful bacteria from remaining in your gut. For example, L. rhamnosus can prevent Candida albicans, a type of harmful bacteria, from colonizing the intestinal walls. [23]

But it gets better…

Not only does L. rhamnosus prevent bad bacteria from growing and spreading, it also promotes the growth of more beneficial bacteria! [24]

And if that wasn’t enough, it also increases the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), such as acetate, propionate, and butyrate. [25]

SCFAs are a source of nourishment for the cells lining the colon, creating a healthier digestive tract. Moreover, SCFA can protect against colon cancer, promote weight loss, and lower blood sugar levels. [26, 27, 28, 29]

4. It can protect against tooth decay

Tooth decay affects many people, especially children. They are created by harmful bacteria found inside the mouth. These bacteria create acids that break down the outer layer of your teeth, the enamel. [30, 31]

Fortunately, due to its antimicrobial properties, L. rhamnosus can help fight these types of harmful bacteria. [32]

One study in nearly 600 children found that drinking milk containing L. rhamnosus instead of regular milk led to fewer cavities and less harmful bacteria overall. [33]

Another study showed that regularly taking a lozenge containing L. rhamnosus significantly reduced bacterial growth and gingivitis, compared to a placebo. [34]

5. It can help prevent urinary tract infections

A urinary tract infection (UTI) can occur anywhere along the urinary tract, such as the kidneys, bladder, or urethra. It is more common in women and is usually caused by the bacteria E. coli or Staphylococcus saprophyticus. [35, 36]

Research has found that L. rhamnosus may be able to prevent urinary tract infections, kill harmful bacteria, and restore good bacteria after infection.

One analysis of 5 studies in nearly 300 women found that L. rhamnosus — along with other Lactobacillus bacteria — was safe and effective in preventing UTIs. [37]

Other studies have found L. rhamnosus to be particularly effective at killing bad bacteria in the digestive tract. [38, 39]

6. It may promote weight loss

The bacteria that live in your gut can alter your appetite and food cravings by messing with your hormones. Fortunately, being a good bacteria, L. rhamnosus can affect your eating habits in a positive way.

Research has found that L. rhamnosus can reduce appetite and food cravings, especially in women. [40, 41]

7. May increase insulin sensitivity

When your body builds up resistance to insulin, blood sugar levels can rise, and your risk of heart disease and diabetes increases dramatically.

Fortunately, research has found that L. rhamnosus may be able to improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control. [42, 43, 44, 45]

8. It can lower blood cholesterol

High cholesterol — especially LDL cholesterol — increases your risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular problems.

However, one study found that L. rhamnosus lowered cholesterol levels in addition to a class of medications intended to help treat high cholesterol. [46]

9. May fight allergies

Whether it’s the change of seasons, pets, or something else out of the ordinary, allergies can be a real pain in the butt.

But, by promoting the growth of friendly gut bacteria and suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria, research shows that L. rhamnosus can relieve and even prevent allergy symptoms. [47, 48, 49]

10. It can help treat acne

Getting acne as a teenager – it was never fun for anyone. But getting over it as an adult? It’s very annoying. Those days are supposed to be over. However, nearly 50 million American adults still suffer from acne. [50]

Fortunately, research has found that due to its antimicrobial properties, L. rhamnosus supplements can reduce the appearance and incidence of acne. [51]

Could your microbiome use a boost?

More and more research is showing how important a healthy gut microbiome is to overall health. The more healthy bacteria you have, the better off you will be.

L. rhamnosus is the most well researched and understood of all probiotic strains. This is why it is the main ingredient in highly absorbable probiotics.

See, most probiotic supplements contain as many strains of probiotics as possible. But this does not lead to a harmonious microbiome flourishing with good bacteria that you would hope for. Instead, these strains compete to be at the top of the list, while doing little to no benefit for you.

I think it is this way. You want good bacteria, not harmful bacteria, in your gut. But if the good guys are busy fighting each other, Bad guys can thrive.

With our probiotic, you get a pure, highly absorbable dose of L. rhamnosus that can focus on creating more of the same good bacteria, all while eliminating the bad bacteria.
