LB81, the good microorganism and Constipation problem

LB81 (Lactobacillus bulgaricus 81) is the good microorganisms with supporting scientific research conducted among healthy participants and participants with constipation problem. It found that people who consumed yoghurt with LB81 on regular basis had significantly improved bowel movement behavior by softening feces, making it easier to defecate, and returning to have regular bowel movement. Apart from that, a study by Otsu and associates (1996, 1998) also found that after consuming yoghurt which contained LB81 either in cup yoghurt format or drinking yoghurt format, people with chronic constipation reported reduced stomach discomfort and abdominal contraction as well as feeling more comfortable in the stomach.
