Probiotic IMM provides 5 billion CFU per serving of the beneficial bacteria Bifidobacterium longum BB536, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus plantarum.
These strains provide particular support for a healthy immune response and immunoglobulin function. B. longum BB536 is a shelf stable, top-selling probiotic in Japan, supported in the literature by over 25 human trials and 30 animal studies.
- A recent meta-analysis involving 9 randomized controlled trials has revealed that probiotics maintain healthy immune and nasal function.
- Double-blind, placebo-controlled trials indicate that B. longum BB536 supplementation maintains G.I. bacteria balance, supporting immune function and maintaining eye, nose and throat health.
- In another randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, L. acidophilus and B. lactis showed support for nasal function and maintained healthy eosinophil activity within the nasal lining.
- Research involving L. casei and L. plantarum also suggests that these strains maintain healthy cytokine production, IgE function and mast cell integrity.
