Lactobacillus rhamnosus was first isolated in 1983 and is known to have a strong avidity for human intestinal cells and can survive acid and bile environments. It is considered one of the most studied probiotics, with research showing that it could do the following:
- alleviate rotavirus diarrhea in children,
- prevent atopic dermatitis,
- protect against urinary tract infections,
- and improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus appears to be safe and effective in prolonging remission in UC patients. LGG has also been studied in CD, but found to be no better than placebo.

When Lactobacillus and other anaerobic bacteria levels are low, like in IBD patients, the gut loses anti-inflammatory features that exist in healthy individuals and the disease flares up.
Probiotics can help to restore the gut homeostasis. There is a lot of research which shows probiotics, like Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, can help control gut inflammation and improve IBD.
