What is more beneficial soil organism based probiotics or human strain probiotics?
The Soil Organism is very different from the HLC High Potency Probiotics. It does not contain the researched strains of beneficial bacteria and there is some controversy in the nutrition industry as to the benefit of soil organisms. Some practitioners have warned us against using soil organism for people who have very compromised GI function since it could actually do some harm. Others have found it to be quite helpful.
The strains in HLC products are not Soil Organisms (HSOs). Instead, HLC is Human Lactic Commensals, which have been isolated from a healthy woman and replicated in the lab. Thus, all the organisms in HLC naturally exist in the GI tract and they implant quite well because the body recognizes them as “self”. The human strains in HLC have been extensively researched over the last 10 years and shown to adhere quite well.
