Custom Probiotics brand produces high-potency probiotic blends to assist with increasing the number of healthy bacteria in the gut. With all the touted benefits of Custom Probiotics brand, there are several risks associated with the types of healthy bacteria used to create this specific brand of probiotics.

According to Custom Probiotics Inc., probiotics such as L. Acidophilus, Lactobacilli, and Bifidobacteria, form a protective barrier in the intestines to protect against harmful bacteria and pathogens and balance out the intestinal microflora. Probiotics are known to stimulate the immune system, assist with digestion and nutrient absorption, and improve overall health. Custom Probiotics brand offers a variety of probiotic blends and single-strain products. Some of the probiotics included in each product include L. Acidophilus, Bifidobacteria, and L. Bulgaricus.

Probiotics, in general, can bring relief to and benefit the lives of healthy people. However, there have been reported side effects and warnings of risk for people with certain conditions when ingesting larger amounts of lactic-acid producing bacteria. The build-up of D-lactic acid, a type of lactic-acid producing bacteria and found in Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, may be harmful to those who are immunocompromised; however, scientists report in Oxford Journals that consumption of products such as Custom Probiotics “presents a negligible risk to consumers, including immunocompromised hosts.”

In addition, D-lactic acid acidosis, which occurs when the body cannot expel D-lactic acid, has the potential to cause neurotoxicity from probiotics, according to the American Physiological Society. Symptoms may include depression, confusion, impaired central nervous system function, and may impair certain neurological functions.

Oxford Journals reports that probiotics such as Custom Probiotics’ also have the potential to cause invasive infections, though rare, and may be due to D-lactic acidosis. Conversely, research shows that D-lactic acid producing bacteria are antibiotic resistant which may provide protection from the damaging effects of antibiotics.

Overall, according to Oxford Journals, probiotics such as Custom Probiotics brand have shown promising results especially when safety procedures are put in place and safety criteria are followed.
