LACTOBACILLUS JENSENII Overview Information
Lactobacillus jensenii (L. jensenii) is a type of probiotic ("good" bacteria) found naturally in the human body. It's also found in fermented foods.
"Good" bacteria such as L. jensenii might help the body break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off "bad" organisms that might cause diseases. These bacteria are sometimes added to fermented foods like yogurt and also found in dietary supplements.
People use L. jensenii for many different purposes, but there is no good scientific evidence to support its use.
Don't confuse L. jensenii with other probiotics, or with fermented food products such as fermented milk, kefir, or yogurt. These are not the same. Also note that the Lactobacillus genus was split up into 25 different genera in April 2020. Many species were reclassified at this time, but L. jensenii remains in the Lactobacillus genus. Its name did not change.
