Streptococcus thermophilus

Streptococcus thermophilus is a type of probiotic bacteria. Probiotics are also known as friendly bacteria due to their health benefits, namely assisting in the breakdown of food, absorbing nutrients and warding off the organisms within the microbiome which can cause disease including diarrhoea [i].

Streptococcus thermophilus is commonly used to produce fermented dairy foods such as yogurt; also used in dietary supplements. It is most commonly taken by mouth to treat and prevent diarrhoea and constipation [ii]. Epidemiological studies have shown that the consumption of fermented foods is associated with reduced risks of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease, along with improved weight management [iii].

In one particular study, the patients were organised to receive a mixture of Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and Streptococcus thermophilus strains or placebo for eight weeks.The results suggested that the studied probiotic preparation was well tolerated and safe and can offer benefits for patients with diarrhoea experienced as part of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) [iv].
