Live cultures are microorganisms that are often considered to be part of the ‘good’ bacteria of your gut, which are essential for maintaining good health. There are many different strains of live bacteria cultures, which have a range of sources. For example, the main place to find Lactobacillus plantarum is in plant matter, but other strains like Bifidobacterium animalis are most commonly found in the large intestine of mammals. Some of the first strains of live bacteria cultures were discovered at the turn of the 20th Century, when the fields of bacteriology and microbiology were first starting to come into their own.
