Gut flora which reduce cholesterol have been patented - Sept 2014

Unique probiotic targets Cardiovascular Disease – Life Extension Mag Oct 2014

A species of Lactobacillus: L. reuteri 30242 reduces cholesterol by creating an enzyme which makes cholesterol less absorbable.
Details on the patent – apparently commercially available

Comments by VitaminDWiki

  1. Amazing that a species existing in many humans can be patented
  2. Perhaps use of antibiotics wiped out L. reuteri 30242 in many guts, but now we can pay to have them restored
