Right now, inside of you, is a team of living bacteria. Certain strains of bacteria are responsible for different health effects, but many of them also share the same functions. Lactobacillus paracasei is one such strain with powerful benefits. Let’s get familiar with this strain and examine the research behind it.

The Benefits of Lactobacillus Paracasei

Of the many probiotic strains commonly added to probiotic supplements, Lactobacillus paracasei is one of the best. It’s key for digestive function, boosting the immune system, and even energy levels. One study even showed that the strain could be helpful for fighting infections. [1] [2]

Once in the body, L. paracasei moves into the gut, where it, like other strains, starts to work its magic. Research suggests it could be a natural approach for infant diarrhea. [3] Because of this, some infant formulas already contain this probiotic strain. There’s also a promising study examining its effectiveness for relieving symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. [4]

Supplementing Lactobacillus Paracasei

It’s easy to add L. paracasei to your day, just take a supplement that contains this strain in combination with other beneficial bacteria to strengthen the supplement’s effectiveness and its ability to survive stomach acid. To get all the perks of L. paracasei and the other probiotic strains, make sure you’re getting your prebiotics, too. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that act as the food probiotics need to survive, so definitely make sure you’re getting enough to keep those probiotics happy! If you want my recommendation — go with Floratrex™. It’s an advanced probiotic formula with a blend of the 23 best strains and prebiotics, it’s the best available.
