Nano-sized lactic acid bacteria is sterilized lactic acid bacteria with a particle size of less than 1 micron, and disperse when dissolved in water.
From the results of many years of research, it has become clear that regardless of the life and death of lactic acid bacteria its “particle” works on various immune cells in the immune system of the intestine.
So that lactic acid bacteria is expected to work not only for intestinal regulation but also various things such as immunomodulation and aging prevention. In particular, small particle lactic acid bacteria is efficiently absorbed in the intestine, thereby activates immune cells, creates intracellular mediators, and enhances immunity.
<Unbalanced immunological system in modern people>
In the small intestine, approximately 60% of the immune cells in the entire body are gathered and the health of one’s body is supported by maintaining a balance between Th1 and Th2 cells, which is the essential components of the immune system.
However, people living in the modern world often tend to disrupt this immunological balance favoring Th2 cells, because of a disturbance of the autonomic nervous system, lifestyle changes, and/or aging.
Nano-sized lactic acid bacteria made by separating adhesion of lactic acid bacteria and dispersing them, can easily pass through Peyer’s patches in the small intestine. This production method can induce Th1 cells and adjust the immunological balance between Th1 and Th2 cells.
