Bi-07™ Introduction

B lactis Bi-07™ has been studied alone and frequently alongside NCFM®, Bl-04®, and  Lpc-37™ as part of the HOWARU® Restore blend for digestive health.1 It has also been clinically studied in combination with NCFM® for pediatric immune health.2 Extensive in vitro and in vivo studies support the health-enhancing, probiotic properties of B. lactis Bi-07™. The strain has been published in more than 80 scientific publications and in 32 clinical trials that extend from toddlers (7 months of age) to aging  populations (70 years of age). Bi-07™ has a long history of safe use, is well suited for intestinal survival, and has strong adhesion to intestinal cell lines. 3-9
