However, it is also important to note that lactic acid is not naturally produced by the human body, and hence lactobacilli have trouble proliferating and settling within the microbiome. As a result, lactobacilli are often excreted outside the body as transit bacteria. In contrast, lactic acid bacteria-producing substances are non-living bacteria....
