What is Lab4?

Lab4 is a consortium of probiotic bacteria, which has been developed by Dr Nigel Plummer and his team of scientists at Cultech Ltd in south Wales. 

The scientists at Cultech have over 30 years experience of the discovery and development of probiotic bacteria and the production of probiotic products. Crucially, the Cultech researchers have spent the last fifteen years undertaking clinical research to prove the effectiveness of the Lab4 probiotic strains and this research is ongoing.

There is a Lab4 for adults and Lab4b for pregnancy and infants from birth to four years.

The Lab4 consortium of bacteria contains Lactobacillus acidophilus (strain 1), Lactobacillus acidophilus (strain 2), Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis.

Lab4b contains Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactobacillus paracasei, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. Lactis and Bifidobacterium bifidum.
