Lactobacillus Plantarum

Lactobacillus Plantarum:


A team of scientists at the Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology, Guwahati, an autonomous institute of the Department of Science & Technology, have developed a next-generation probiotic that provides hope for longevity and healthy aging.

  • A team of Indian Scientists has identified probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus Plantarum JBC5 from a dairy product that showed great promise in promoting healthy aging.
  • The team has also developed a yogurt using this probiotic bacterium which can be consumed to derive all these health benefits.
  • Probiotics are live microorganisms promoted with claims that they provide health benefits when consumed, generally by improving or restoring the gut flora.
  • There is some evidence that probiotics are beneficial for some conditions, but there is little evidence for many of the health benefits claimed for them.
