  • Supplying the human body with Lactobacillus plantarum strain TENSIA®, which enhances the body’s natural resistance to enteropathogens.
  • In food products plantarum TENSIA reduces the risk of foodborne infections by suppressing potentially pathogenic bacteria due to antimicrobial activity against enteric pathogens like listeria, salmonella and shigella, and psychrophilic microbes.
  • Increases the number of useful lactobacilli in the gut, which ensures breakdown of the nutrients into more easily absorbable compounds.
