Swanson New Line of Single Species Probiotics

Recently I was asked what probiotics to take when you have a Vitamin D defect (a VDR genetic mutation). In answering this, I referenced the reader to: “Vitamin D receptor pathway is required for probiotic protection in colitis.” [2015] which reports:

  • “We found that the probiotics Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG (LGG) and Lactobacillus plantarum (LP) increased VDR protein expression in both mouse and human intestinal epithelial cells.”

The first one is our long time friend, Culturelle (available on Amazon and also at Costco often). For the second one, I discovered that Swanson now has a single species version

I noticed that there were additional single species probiotics from Swanson. I have summarized in a table below
