Deerland Probiotics and Enzymes has announced the publication of a clinical study demonstrating efficacy of the probiotic Bacillus subtilis DE111 in promoting healthy endothelial function and support of healthy cholesterol levels.
The study, “Bacillus subtilis DE111 intake may improve blood lipids and endothelial function in healthy adults” published in Beneficial Microbes, was performed at a leading university specializing in probiotics research and is an IRB-approved, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled four-week trial involving 43 participants aged 18 to 65.
The overall goal of this parallel arm trial was to determine if various cardiovascular parameters in healthy adults could be altered by probiotic supplementation. This new research was based on findings from previous studies that showed clear correlations between certain probiotic strains and healthy vascular function, reduced systemic inflammation and glucose tolerance, as well as evidence that the species Bacillus subtilis can support healthy cholesterol levels with positive cardiovascular effects in animal models.
The research team found that…
