The intestines are the largest immune organ in our body. In fact, 70% to 80% of immune cells reside in the gut, they are known as Gut-associated Lymphoid Tissues (GALT). There are 4 types of immune cells:
i. Macrophage provides a first line of defense in protecting the host from infection. It engulfs and digests cellular debris, foreign substances, microbes and cancer cells.
ii. Natural killer cell (NK cell) provides protection against viral and bacterial infections and they help to detect and limit the development of cancer.
iii. T cell (T lymphocyte) recognizes and remembers invading bacteria and viruse.
iv. B cell (B lymphocyte) is able to make antibodies, which circulate and bind to antigens.
Keeping the intestines healthy with a high level of good bacteria is vital to support optimal functions of immune cells. Good bacteria residing in the gut are constantly interfacing with the immune cells and essentially prime the immune system for contact with incoming germs and viruses.

How it Work?
Improvement in Immunity
Beneficial effects of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Fermented Extract on intestinal immunity by Dr. Toru Abu, Nigata University Graduate School
It was observed that LAB Fermented Extract is beneficial in supporting immune health and protecting the body against auto-immune disease and various types of allergic issues. This result is based on a study conducted to observe the effects of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Fermented Extract on intestinal immunity over a period of 1 week. Results showed that the number of immune cells (Intraepithelial lymphocyte (IELs), NK1.1+T cells and Interferon (IFN-ɣ)) in the intestines have increased.
Improvement in NK Cell Activation and Immunoregulation
Beneficial effects of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Fermented Extract on intestinal immunity by Prof. Noboru Furukawa, Laboratory of Livestock Product Utilisation Department of Animal Science Tokyo University of Agriculture
Study observed the effect of Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) Fermented Extract on NK cell* activity in the presence of stimulus, eg. tumour cells in the immune system. No excessive response was observed when immune system is normal.
*Natural killer cell (NK cell) is a type of white blood cell that has the ability to recognise and kill tumour cells.
“LAB Fermented Extract helps me feel good at 73!”
I have been taking LAB Fermented Extract for 22 years and it has helped to keep me active and in great health! I was struggling with my health during the menopausal years when I was in my 40s. LAB Fermented Extract has helped me regain my health. When I first started taking LAB Fermented Extract, I was surprised that my stools no longer smell bad and my health was improving.
At 73 now, I am still actively teaching French confectionery. I no longer have stomachaches during busy periods at work and my frequency of visiting the hospital has also reduced.
One day, out of curiosity, I watered my wilting plant with a mixture of water and LAB Fermented Extract. It was most astonishing to see the plant regained its vitality. This affirmed my confidence in this product.
Friends whom I have shared the product with also saw improvement in their health. Even my children and relatives who are healthcare professionals had been consuming LAB Fermented Extract for many years. I’m lucky to be introduced to this supplement.
“My bowel movements improved and I no longer suffer from constipation. Even my immune system has strengthened. I recommended it to my patients and was astonished to observe positive results in them.”
“I came to know about LAB Fermented Extract while researching for something to improve my intestinal health and regulate bowel movements. I’m really happy that my gastrointestinal condition improved significantly and I no longer suffer from constipation. My bowel movements improved and so did my stool quality. Not only that, my immune system has strengthened and I’m more energetic than before.
Since my experience with LAB Fermented Extract was so positive, I recommended it to my patients. The results were impressive, I observed improvement in my patient’s oral health within a week – swollen gums subsided and salivary function improved. Some patients even reported that they no longer have constipation after consuming it for one month!
LAB Fermented Extract is now part of my daily health regime.”
