Lactiferm probiotic works by:
- Modifying the local bacterial community in the intestines by competing for attachment sites (competitive exclusion)
- Ensuring the improved use of the total diet by enhancing its nutritional value
M74 has been extensively tested in field trials and such findings confirmed in university studies. As a practical and economical means of helping maintain intestinal wellbeing in equines Lactiferm Capsules have proven especially useful to support intestinal microflora in horses of all ages.
The origins of M-74 can be traced back to Czech Republic to a Dr Kvanta who worked with Claes Olsen who was in the bee pollen business and had a relationship with the Czech government at the time. Initial production started in the Kvanta basement; probably Judit (Endre’s wife) was probably the most responsible. Then the research attracted the attention of the Swedish based Bonnier family and specifically Uncle Albert who was a true entrepreneur who started over 100 companies. It was after he died the family decided to sell their interest in the probiotic and M-74 was embraced by world recognition in all forms of livestock. M-74 was first named Streptococcus faecium then changed to Enterococcus faecium to be better categorised with EU legislation.
