Difference between Lactococcus lactis strain Plasma and other lactic acid bacteria

Common lactic acid bacteria cannot directly activate the pivotal leaders of immune cells.

  • NK cells: kill a wide range of abnormal cells
  • B cells: produce antibodies against viruses
  • Cytotoxic T cells: kill virus-infected cells
  • Helper T cells: help the activity of killer T cells and B cells

Common lactic acid bacteria can only activate some of the immune cells. Lactococcus lactis strain Plasma can directly activate plasmacytoid dendritic cells, the pivotal leaders of immune cells. Under the commands of activated leaders, the immune system is activated comprehensively, thereby contributing to protection against bacterial and viral infections.

New common knowledge about lactic acid bacteria

Common lactic acid bacteria have been known to improve the intestinal environment by being delivered live and functioning in the large intestine, thereby indirectly enhancing the immune system. Lactococcus lactis strain Plasma, in contrast, has been found to directly activate the pivotal leaders of immune cells in the small intestine.

The activated immune cells circulate throughout the body in the bloodstream, thus strengthening the body from the inside, in addition to functioning in the intestines.
