“Backed by more than 29 positive clinical trials with more than 1000 participants and preclinical scientific evidence, Lacidofil has consistently demonstrated its beneficial effects on maintaining a healthy intestinal microbiota, leading to overall well-being."
"This new study strengthens the evidence already available showing that Lacidofil is an effective adjuvant to standard therapy for H. pylori eradication and reduces the side-effects of the antibiotics in this therapy,” confirms Marie-Laure Oula, Clinical Program Manager at Lallemand Health Solutions.
This new double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study shows the efficacy and safety of Lacidofil — a unique formula combining two proprietary probiotic bacteria strains L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 and L. helveticus Rosell-52.
The study included 90 adults, taking either a placebo or Lacidofil with standard triple therapy for 2 weeks and then continued with either the placebo or the probiotic alone for 4 additional weeks.
Gastrointestinal comfort and general health-related quality of life criteria were analysed at baseline, and after 2 and 6 weeks of probiotic intervention.
The analyses showed a statistically significant decrease of gastrointestinal discomfort and increase of general health-related quality of life at week 6 compared with the placebo group (p<0.001 and p=0.02, respectively).
The study also highlights that Lacidofil is able to increase the eradication rate of H. pylori (p=0.047).
Lacidofil has been on the market since 1995 and is now available in more than 20 countries, both as a standalone product and as an ingredient in combination with other strains.
With a proven record of safe use and a robust pharmacovigilance programme, Lacidofil has earned strong Canadian claims approval for various health applications, including promoting healthy microflora in infants as young as 2 months old, such as
- addressing Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhoea (AAD)
- managing acute diarrhoea
- supporting GI balance during Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy
- offering specific benefits for pregnant women.
Offered in various galenic forms, including powders, capsules and drops, Lacidofil is a versatile probiotic solution meeting market demand.
