Product description

Patented probiotic strain with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Consumption of Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 boosts production of the major cellular antioxidant glutathione. 20 years of research and clinical studies support the efficacy of L.fermentum ME-3 for cardiovascular and metabolic disease prevention (reduction of oxidized LDL, cholesterol and triglycerides), anti-aging (systemic antioxidant effect), detoxification (liver function support).
Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 was isolated in 1995 at the University of Tartu, Estonia, from a healthy one year old child. The strain displays excellent probiotic properties, resistance to gastro-intestinal environment (bile acids, low pH), lectin profile suitable for adhesion to gut epithelial cells. QPS status, safety demonstrated by human clinical trials and long history of human consumption without side effects.

ME-3 is one of the very few probiotic strains to contain a complete enzymatic system enabling synthesis, uptake and redox regeneration of reduced glutathione. Glutathione is a major free radical scavenger and antioxidant, used by the enzyme glutathione peroxidase to inactivate harmful peroxides. Glutathione also contributes to maintain other antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E in their active forms. ME-3 consumption leads to an increase of the reduced/oxidized glutathione ratio in the body, and to an overall improvement of oxidative status.
