What is Lactobacillus Bulgaricus?

Posted by TTN Palawan on

Lactobacillus bulgaricus is a beneficial bacteria found in the digestive tract that can fight harmful bacteria that may invade your digestive system. This strain of bacteria may also be found in foods or supplements. When it's consumed, it's referred to as probiotics. Probiotics are "good" bacteria that may play an important role in maintaining your health when consumed.

Bulgaria is the homeland of the yogurt. For Bulgarians, consuming yogurt has been known to be beneficial for many centuries, but the unique qualities of the Bulgarian yogurt garnered a worldwide attention at the end of 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.

The well-known Russian scientist Ilya Metchnikoff - one of the founders of modern immunology - linked the longevity of the Bulgarian people to the consumption of yoghurt.

Metchnikoff even reported that the special kind of Lactobacilli in samples of Bulgarian yogurt was the only bacterium that had never damaged the human organism anyhow. Even though he made that discovery, Professor Metchnikoff was not aware who the real founder of that special bacillus was. The answer to his question dates back to 1905 when the Bulgarian Dr. Stamen Grigorov, discovered a special kind of Lactobacilli and called them Lactobacillus Bulgaricus.

Nowadays, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus is used to sour milk and make yogurt, it is given as remedy, used in treatments, etc. The administration of yogurt products made with Lactobacillus Bulgaricus is very beneficial and it is more and more establishing the method as the preferred option for improving nutrition. LB can also be taken in tablet form although the best way to benefit from its qualities is through yogurt consumption.
