Frequently asked questions

Mælkesyrebakterier is the Danish word for “lactic acid bacteria”, which are highly beneficial microorganisms that promote the human body by enhancing digestion, stimulating the immune system, preventing and treating diarrhea, among other health benefits.  

Lactic acid bacteria are good bacteria that fall under the category “probiotics”. It may be hard to believe, but not all bacteria are dangerous. On the contrary, certain types of bacteria, such as lactic acid bacteria, have a beneficial role in the body and are found naturally in the human intestine.  

It is completely normal to feel a bit of activity in the stomach and intestinal system when starting to take lactic acid bacteria. This is due to the good bacteria in the capsules, which stimulate the gastrointestinal system.

Our supplements do not contain milk or traces of milk with exception of our High&GoGo Organic Milk Powder, which is made from organic milk from Thise Dairy. Although the name may be a bit misleading, lactic acid bacteria does not have anything to do with milk. These small microbes have been given their name, as they themselves produce lactic acid during the fermentation of carbohydrates in the human body.

The capsules are made from Maltodextrin and Hypromellose. Maltodextrin is a vegetable starch that is easily digested and is available in the form of a fine, white powder. Hypromellose is a stabilizer and thickener made from cellulose, which is naturally found in plant fibers.
