What is Lactobacillus Rhamnosus (Lr-32)

Lactobacillus rhamnosus has been frequently used in the prevention and treatment of occasional diarrhea in children. Among 69 children, randomized to receive either a mixture of 20 billion CFU per dose of L. rhamnosus and L. reuteri or placebo twice daily for five days, those receiving probiotics had reduced duration of loose stool (82 hours vs. 101 hours in the placebo group). After early intervention with probiotics the length of hospitalization was reduced by 48% in the probiotic group. L. rhamnosus has also been shown to promote GI health by increasing intestinal cell replication.
