Lactobacillus casei is a strain of lactic acid bacteria.
L. casei is a probiotic bacteria shown to be helpful in preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea and C. difficile infections, and promoting a healthy gut microbiome. Compared to placebos, consumption of L. casei improves recovery in children suffering acute diarrhea. There is suggestion that it can inhibit growth of H. pylori bacteria which are a cause of stomach ulcers. See: Probiotics.
