Live Cultures: Do they actually help your body?

Live cultures refer to live microorganisms that can be consumed through food, with the objective of supplementing the body with additional nutritional substances.

At its very core, live cultures contained in food products such as Meiji Bulgaria Set and Drinking Yoghurt supply the body with beneficial cultures that can enhance certain bodily functions. The specific LB81 Bulgarian live cultures found in Meiji Bulgaria also bring about proven benefits to gut health and overall well-being.

How live cultures work

Depending on which strain of live culture is contained in the relevant foods, it can have a variety of effects on the body. Generally, live cultures help the body maintain a healthy community of microorganisms, or encourage the spawn of healthy microorganisms in the body. For example, the authentic LB81 strain of live cultures contained in Meiji Bulgaria Set and Drinking Yoghurt, helps restore balance to the gastrointestinal flora by encouraging the production of ‘good’ bacteria and reducing ‘bad’ bacteria in the gut.

How effective are live cultures for the body?

Maintaining a healthy and balanced gut in the body is key to maintaining a good immune response and general overall well-being. It is no surprise then that a great deal of research on the effectiveness of live cultures has shown promise for a wide range of health purposes, including relieving of diarrhea symptoms, constipation, as well as maintaining good general digestive health. As with many dietary supplements, moderate consumption of such functional foods on a regular basis would bode better results.

When to consume live cultures

When we consume live cultures largely depends on the form of food the live cultures are contained in. Functional food products such as Meiji Bulgaria can be consumed on the regular, day and night, and even as a meal replacement. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, such foods can not only supply the body with live cultures to help the body, but also help revive muscles with its protein content, as well as promote general well-being with its lower sugar content.
