NEW Effective "live" probiotic

LB17 "live" probiotic is produced from over 70 natural and organic ingredients such as:

lactic acid bacterium (introduced as starter)

  seaweed   Kombu, Fucus, brown algae, Hibamata from Norway
  mushrooms   Shiitake, Maitake, Agaricus brazei murill
  vegetables   Kale, Cabbage, Broccoli, Komatsuna, Mugwort, young leaves of Barley
  medicinal herbs   Nihon-yama-ninjin or Japanese ginseng
  grains and cereals   soya bean, unpolished rice
  cultivated and wild fruits   apples, oranges, berries, lemon, persimon, guomi, akebi, Chinese matrimony

The above ingredients are allowed to ferment naturally in unpolluted mountain spring water for a period of 3 years. . Due to the way LB17 "live" probiotic is exposed to extremes in temperature (summer and winter) during the fermentation process, the bacteria in LB17 "live" probiotic are potent, resilient and are able to stay alive (up to 3 years!) at room temperature without the need for refrigeration. They are "live" and do not need to be revived unlike most of the other probiotics particularly those that were "freeze dried"!

Prior to encapsulation, Perilla oil (high in Omega 3 EFA) is added to provide even better benefits to the user

No preservatives, additives, colouring, artificial flavouring are used in the production process

LB17 "live" probiotic is suitable for vegetarians as well as the "raw foods practitioner". It is also suitable to the lactose intolerant and milk protein (caesin) sensitive individuals.

The concentrate in each vegetable capsule of LB17 "live" probiotic contains 17 strains of lactic bacteria (11 lactobacillus + 2 bifido bacterium), amino acids, vitamins and minerals

An European study has shown that lactic bacteria is an effective and potent antifungal. Accordingly, it would be effective for the treatment and eradication of Candida. At the same time, it would benefit the user by bringing balance back to the intestinal flora and prevent re-infection due to the colonizing effects of the LAB in LB17 live probiotic

The benefits of using LB17 "live" probiotic include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • treat and control fungal infections, including eradicating Candida, through the antifungal effects of LAB especially the LAB strains in LB17
  • bring the balance of friendly flora in the digestive system back to at least 80% good bacteria
  • assist in the digestion of food consumed and its subsequent absorption
  • boost the immune system of the body
  • in bringing the digestive functions back to good order, help to ease the stress on and cleanse the organs associated with digestion such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, etc
  • support the treatment of crohns and colitis
  • study shows live probiotics protects intestinal cells from effects of infection by interoinvasive Escherichia coil (EIEC)
  • improve oxygen intake to the red cell plateletes and thus improve the stamina and endurance of athletes from studies conducted by researches at Okayama University, Japan
  • convert botancial lignans (SDG) in the bowel to mammalian lignans (ED and EL) to enable the body to absorb these powerul and amazingly beneficial substances. Lignans have been recognised and acknowledged by the medical fraternity as effective in treating and preventing cancers such as breast, bowel, colon and prostate
  • help treat psoriasis, a condition which is being recognised to be caused by a poor or inadequate immune system
  • help treat asthma and mothers who use probiotics during pregnancy may ensure that the new born child do not develop asthmatic symptoms
  • pevent colds and nasal congestions through elimination of excessive bad and harmful bacteria in the nasal passages
  • ease and relief heart-burn, acid reflux and most other digestive disorders such as excessive intestinal gas


Among the most important are: Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bifidus, L. bulgaricus, L casei, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum, L. fermentum. L. salivarius, Streptococcus thermophilus and Streptococcus faecium. They inhibit the proliferation and the activities of pathogenic bacteria in several ways.

By the production of lactic acid:
Harmful and pathogenic bacteria cannot develop in an acidic environment

By the production of specific antibiotics:
Lactobacillus acidophilus produces acidophiline, L bulgaricus produces bulgarican, other lactobacilli produce lactocidine, lactobacilline, hydrogen peroxide, bacterial peptides, lactic streptococci produce nisin and streptococcins. These are all anti-septic to pathogenic bacterium.

It has been shown that lactic bacteria, in particular Streptococcus faecium, colonize the intestinal mucosa preventing its attachment by other harmful microbes. This protects the integrity of the digestive system eliminating the onset of many digestive disorders.

Comments from healthcare professionals who have used LB17:

"... I have been using different probiotic blends over the years. The best I found by far is LB17. The ... more strands of different friendly bateria, the better the probiotic. It has been my experience that LB17 covers every area of body fluids from the sinuses to the reproductive organs which give LB17 a great advantage over any other probiotic. My patients love the small size of the capsules and I have used LB17 with great success on open wounds and stubborn acne by ... applying ... directly to the wound.

... be happy to recommend LB17 to any health practitioner."..
