Lactobacillus and bifidobacteria are the most abundant microorganisms in Probiotic containing food products and supplements. The three live ingredients of Symbion™ (Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus subtilis and Enterococcus faecium) are Lactobacilli, which promote health. They turn lactose (milk sugar) into lactic acid, lowering the pH of the colon and inhibiting overgrowth of harmful bacteria (e.g., Clostridium, Salmonella, Shigella and E.coli).
Lactobacillus species, have been used in promoting health benefits throughout the world, for a variety of conditions supported by scientific studies (see Refs).

These include:
Improving health of the digestive tract
Increasing immune function
Decreasing cholesterol and lipid levels
Decreasing prevalence of vaginal infections.
