Heat-Treated Lactobacillus plantarum
Different from general live probiotics, patented L-137® is a heat-treated strain of Lactobacillus plantarum L-137, that promotes endogenous hyaluronic acid production from keratinocytes through its immunostimulating activity. Our advanced heat treatment technology significantly stabilizes the activity of HK L-137
Many lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria possess "Immunostimulating activity" however, the strength of the immunostimulating activity varies greatly on bacterial strains.
Clinical studies indicate that intake of Heat-killed Lactobacillus plantarum (HK-L137) - one of the patented ingredients of MAXiJoints decreased the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (viral & bacterial).
