How does Sporlac work?

  1. The main ingredients of Sporlac probiotic medicine are Lactobacillus Acidophilus.
  2. It is a mixture of good bacteria and yeast which help balance the microbial flora or the internal environment of the intestine.
  3. Sometimes, Antibiotics can cause a huge disbalance between the good and bad bacteria, which can lead to pathologies.
  4. When you introduce good bacteria inside the body, it can lead to a competition between good & bad bacteria for nutrition.
  5. Later, the bad bacteria die because of the loss of their nutrients.

Sporlac Probiotic Medicine from Sanzyme

After the Second World War, Prof. O.Nakayama and Prof. Mashita from Yamanashi University has invented a strain from green malt known as Lactobacillus. This strain showed many potential health benefits which were perfect as many Japanese soldiers were in deteriorating condition. In 1964, the benefits of the Lactobacillus strain against diarrhea and constipation were proved, and even after three decades, Lactobacillus, aka SPORLAC, is still known as the most trusted probiotics.

Here is the timeline:

  1. 1949 – Dr. O. Nakayama isolated the first Lactobacillus sporogenes.
  2. 1964 – Numerous clinical trials were carried out among adults and infants for Lactobacillus sporogenes
  3. 1972 – The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare approves prescribing SPORLAC for the treatment of diarrhea.
  4. 1973 – Sankyo offered the formulation and fermentation technique to Uni-Sankyo Ltd., which is now Sanzyme, and market the L.sporogenesis as SPORLAC.

Why Sporlac?

When you administer Sporlac orally, it is unlikely to cause any toxicity, and it shows resistance to heat and kind of intestinal fluids over other types of non-spore formers. It is also non-pathogenic, well-tolerated, and non-toxicogenic. An In vitro study also showed that its spore preparation is neither mutagenic nor genotoxic.

Microbial Food Ingredients

There are many enzymes from bacteria, yeasts, molds, and from plant and mammalian sources which are currently used for processing foods and food ingredients. Some of the yeast species used for the production of proteins are genera Candida, Saccharomyces, Torulopsis, and Methylophilus. Enzymes are produced either by surface culture on solid substrates or by submerged culture using liquid substrates. The success of commercial enzyme production hugely depends on maximizing the activity of the microorganism and minimizing costs of the substrate, incubation, and recovery procedures.
