L. rhamnosus is likely the most important probiotic strain for health from the mouth to the small intestine. It protects by coating the mucus, preventing toxins from reaching the blood. It even results in better smelling breath. L. rhamnosus survives temperature extremes and is resistant to bile salts and stomach acid, ferments 23 sugars and suppresses negative bacteria and yeast growth. It is hardier and keeps better without refrigeration. comparison to L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus is 810 times more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar zymosis (important for people with milk sugar intolerance) has better control over putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting disease-causing pathogens. L. acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth.
