Lactobacillus gasseri SBT-2055
What is the function of L. gasseri SP Strain?
L. gasseri SP Strain , our original probiotic, is shown to reduce visceral fat .
Visceral fat decreased after 12 weeks of intake.
Changes in abdominal visceral fat area
CT images of abdominal cross section (our most significant result)
Volunteers (n=101 ; 54 men, 47 women; BMI of 25 to 30 kg/m2 ; 20-64 years old) were given 100 g of fermented milk containing L. gasseri SP Strain (107 cfu/g) or the control for 12 weeks.
After 12 weeks, the abdominal visceral fat area in the test sample group was significantly reduced compared with the control group.

Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 R&D examples
We pursue the potential of Megmilk Snow Brand’s proprietary Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055.
Suppress accumulation of visceral fat
Through testing conducted on adult males and females, we confirmed that subjects who consumed yogurt containing Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 saw a significant decline in stomach area visceral fat compared to subjects who did not.

Constrain fat absorption and promote its discharge
Through testing conducted on adult males and females, subjects who consumed yogurt containing Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 had significantly higher fat content in their feces compared to subjects who did not. From these results, we found that Lactobacillus gasseri SBT2055 constrained fat absorption and promoted excretion from the body.
