Lactobacillus salivarius is a lactic acid, gram positive probiotic bacterium. It is found in a variety of different environments, including the human mouth, intestines, and female genital tract, as well as in fermented foods and animal intestines (1). Lactobacillus salivarius has been studied for its potential health benefits and its ability to produce bacteriocins, which are antimicrobial peptides that can help to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Research suggests that this beneficial bacterium is not only effective in improving oral hygiene, but also has a positive effect on gut health (1). Lactobacillus salivarius can help alleviate gut disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease by restoring the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Additionally, research has suggested that Lactobacillus salivarius may even have a cholesterol-lowering effect (1) making this bacterium a promising candidate for improving overall health and well-being.
Lactobacillus salivarius is generally considered safe for most people when taken in appropriate doses. However, if you have a weakened immune system or are taking antibiotics, please consult your health care practitioner before using this product.

Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to be useful in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease by promoting a healthy balance of gut bacteria. It is a lactic acid producing bacterium which helps to maintain a healthy pH balance in the gut, creating a less favourable environment for harmful bacteria to grow. It also produces enzymes that help break down food, aiding in protein digestion and reducing symptoms of digestive discomfort (1). Moreover, research suggests that Lactobacillus salivarius produces its own antibiotics to combat harmful pathogens. Studies on mice suggest that specific strains of Lactobacillus salivarius can suppress H. pylori infections and reduce inflammation caused by this bacterium (1).
Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to improve oral hygiene by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the mouth, which can prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria that cause dental plaques and gum disease (2). Studies have also shown that it can reduce gingivitis and the frequency of cavities (3). Additionally, it has been found to reduce bleeding on probing and improve gum health (4). Furthermore, Lactobacillus salivarius has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of cavity-causing bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans, as well as Candida albicans which can lead to oral thrush (5). This therefore suggests that Lactobacillus salivarius plays an important role in supporting oral hygiene.
What’s more, Lactobacillus salivarius may be beneficial in reducing cholesterol levels in the body. According to a study conducted on obese teenagers who took a supplement containing Lactobacillus salivarius and fructooligosaccharide for six weeks, the probiotic has the potential to lower cholesterol levels (1). This treatment led to a significant increase in beneficial bacteria and a decrease in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as an increase in HDL cholesterol. Additionally, the supplement led to a reduction in inflammatory markers in the bloodstream, which suggests a lowered risk of disease for the subjects (1). Therefore, it appears that lactobacillus salivarius could be a useful tool in fighting high cholesterol.
Lactobacillus salivarius supplements are generally considered safe for most people. However, individuals with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or undergoing chemotherapy, should talk with their healthcare practitioner as they may cause infections. Likewise, people with allergies to probiotics should avoid taking Lactobacillus salivarius supplements or should consult with their healthcare provider before taking them.
