“Probiotics sold over the counter aren’t necessary. They may not help you, and might even harm you.” says Dr. Jennifer Wargo, an associate professor of surgical oncology at MD Anderson.

In a study by MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy in San Francisco, they found melanoma patients were 70 percent less likely to respond to cancer immunotherapy if they were also taking probiotic supplements.

The study group was small — just 46 patients — but the findings support broader suggestions that probiotics might actually upset the balance of so-called “good” bacteria in the gut and interfere with the immune response. Read More

How does LACTIS differ from a probiotic?

Are you puzzled about the difference between probiotics and LACTIS and why LACTIS may be more effective and a safer alternative for you than a probiotic supplement?

My interest in probiotics, lactis and gut microbiome spans many decades:

For 48 years I have worked almost exclusively with cancer patients with compromised immunity due to the cancer itself or the impact of conventional treatments; and in many cases both issues.

I know it is crucial to patients wellbeing and recovery strategies to explore and improve the health of their gut bacteria

Natural Resident Bacteria or Supplemented Bacteria as Probiotic?

The key reason is that LACTIS restores our own resident or native gut bacteria. LACTIS does not contain live bacteria; but rather the metabolites of bacteria thereby providing nutrition and invigorating the growth of your good gut bacteria.

Why is this an important?
Probiotics contain “live bacterial strains” in large quantities; this is what they became famous for when probiotics in foods such as Yoghurt or kefir – transformed from a food into a supplement. There was inflated marketing hype; the theory being that the more live bacteria that were consumed, the higher the numbers would be that would reach the gut and benefit you. The more is better theory.

Live probiotic cells as found in probiotic supplements can positively or negatively influence a person’s gut bacteria. New research in the journal Cell Host and Microbe, suggests that under certain conditions, probiotics can be harmful due to their ability to evolve once in the gut. Read More

In contrast; the components of dead probiotic cells. as found in LACTIS, (an Abiotic) exert an anti-inflammatory response in the gastrointestinal tract.
