We use 3 kinds of original lactic acid bacteria.
SK-4 is Lactobacillus plantarum isolated from sake lees. It reaches the intestines alive and suppresses allergic rhinitis in mice together with SV-8, and has an effect of suppressing obesity in rats.
SV-8 is Lactobacillus brevis isolated from fermented milk. This strain has the ability to produce γ -Aminobutyric acid (ＧＡＢＡ). GABA is known to have an inhibitory effect on blood pressure increase and ａ relaxing effect.
SH-10 is Leuconostoc mesendeloides isolated from domestic pickles. This strain produces a polysaccharide (dextran) that is known to have antitumor activity.
