is step three in Natren's three-step custom friendly bacteria replenish system. This Lactobacillus bulgaricus
supplement provides support throughout the digestion process. Natren's Lactobacillus bulgaricus
LB-51 super strain is a transient beneficial bacteria that travels through the digestive tract with food through the process of digestion. Dr. Elie Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winning scientist who theorized that aging is caused by toxic bacteria in the gut, linked the oft-noted longevity and good digestion of the Bulgarian people to the large quantity of fermented milk products containing Lactobacillus bulgaricus
in their diet. In the early 1960s, renowned Bulgarian microbiologist and researcher Dr. Ivan Bogdanov researched a variety of lactobacillus strains, focusing on their applications in improving human health. Natren founder and friendly bacteria expert Natasha Trenev based her effective Digesta Lac formula on Dr. Bogdanov's groundbreaking work. Natren Digesta Lac
is an innovative supplement that improves on run-of-the-mill, less potent probiotic products by keeping the live bacteria in their original culturing medium, or supernatant. Digesta Lac
is available in both dairy and vegetarian/vegan appropriate dairy free formulas. Recommended for adults and children over two years of age. Digesta Lac can support:
- Digestion of carbohydrates and proteins
- Optimized digestion
- A slightly acidic environment necessary for intestinal health
- Growth of beneficial bacteria, L. acidophilus and B. bifidum
- Digestion of dairy products by assisting with lactose metabolism

DAIRY - Loose Powder
A note about dairy based products: Dairy milk is one of the original foods that these bacteria thrive on, which is why they are called Lacto bacilli, meaning milk bacteria. [Ayurveda, a Hindu system of traditional medicine used in India for over 5000 years, is devoted to using dairy products, as milk is considered the pure love of the cow for her calf. Ayurvedic doctors and pharmacists highly recommend dairy products to their patients.] Natren is one of the few custom manufacturers to still use dairy as a growth medium for beneficial bacteria.
