Lactobacillus pentosus

Lactobacillus pentosus is a gram-positive, lactic acid bacterium that belong to the Lactobacillus genus. It can be found in a variety of different foods, including milk, cheese, and other fermented foods. It is a commensal organism which produces lactic acid from the fermentation of glucose, which makes it useful for various applications in the food industry. Lactobacillus pentosus has been found to be one of the primary probiotics which is used to improve health in humans (1). It is believed to help with digestive issue such as irritable bowel syndrome, and it also has been shown to help prevent and reduce symptoms of inflammation (1). Lactobacillus pentosus may help to improve gut health by maintaining the integrity of the intestinal mucosal barrier and it has the ability to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella enteritidis (1).

Lactobacillus pentosus is an important probiotic strain that has been researched for its health-promoting benefits. One of the most important benefits of Lactobacillus pentosus is its ability to improve gut health. Studies have shown that it can interact with Akkermansia, a beneficial bacteria found in the gut, to increase its abundance in the intestinal tract. This results in increased production of anti-inflammatory compounds and other beneficial compounds, which help to protect the gut and improve its overall health (1). Likewise, Lactobacillus pentosus helps maintain the balance of the gut microbiota and prevents the overgrowth of harmful bacteria which causes digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, and diarrhoea.

Lactobacillus pentosus may also have immune boosting properties. It has been suggested that the intake of b240, a strain of lactobacillus pentosus, may increase salivary SIgA secretion, which is an important factor in gut immune health (2). In addition, recent studies have suggested a strong connection between the skin and gut microbial communities and their role in host metabolism and immune health (3). This connection further indicates that an intake of b240, may help improve immune health by promoting gut microbial diversity.
