Lactobacillus Fermentum ME – 3 References

Lactobacillus Fermentum M – E is a renown strain of probiotics that shows by using extensive research, to naturally produce glutathione, known as the master antioxidant in the human body. Glutathione is very well known for its antioxidant characteristics. It also helps with detoxification as well as helping the support the immune system.

Lactobacillus Fermentum M-E is included in Essential Formula’s Reg’activ formulas for Cardio support, Immune Support and Detoxification.
