Lactobacillus Plantarum (L. plantarum) Overview
One of the most versatile probiotics, Lactobacillus plantarum is found in plant material and the gastrointestinal tract of animals and humans. It is used in the fermentation of foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, and sourdough bread. Research has found this strain to be effective in supporting immune function because it has the ability to destroy pathogens and to preserve critical nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Lactobacillus Plantarum Uses and Benefits
The Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) has not approved L. plantarum for any medical use. However, research has found it to be effective and health practitioners may recommend the supplement for a variety of uses:
- Promotes digestive health
- Immune health
- Effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Chron’s disease and colitis
- Reduces abdominal bloating in patients with IBS
- Safest way to preserve foods
Dosage suggestions and usage
Start with one adult scoop (0.8 gram, 320 billion cfu’s) of the L. plantarum probiotic powder first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (30 minutes prior to eating). Dissolve the powder in a glass of de-chlorinated water and drink it. Do this ONCE a day only. Stay at this dosage for about 3-5 days.
If you are not happy with the results, raise the dosage to two scoops a day, one in the morning and one at bedtime. After one week go to three scoops a day if you still are not getting the expected results. The highest probiotic dosage we recommend is four adult scoops a day. You can always lower the dosage or stop taking probiotics for a few days as needed. You may also visit our Dosage Suggestions section to more info.
How long will a 50 gram or a 100 gram powder last me?
50 grams is equivalent to 60 adult scoops. Each adult scoop measures 0.8 grams (equivalent to 320 billion cfu’s). If you take one adult scoop of L. plantarum powder a day 50 grams will last 2 months while 100 grams will last 4 months. We also include a child scoop measuring 0.1 gram equivalent to 40 billion cfu’s. 8 baby scoops are equivalent to 1 adult scoop.
