Probiotics have a long history of safe use, having been consumed for health benefit and as part of fermented foods for millennia. 16,17,18,19 Many bifidobacteria and lactobacilli species are normal, nonpathogenic inhabitants of the human gastrointestinal tract, oral cavity, skin, and vagina. 16,17,20,21 Documented cases of infection attributable to probiotic intake are limited to individual case reports, primarily associated with the use of probiotics in severely immunocompromised patients, but never reported for VISBIOME.
The probiotic bacteria in VISBIOME are non-pathogenic, non-toxigenic and Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) as food ingredients.
