The influences of lactic acid bacteria (OM-X) on bone structure.
The OM-X capsule is effective in an increment of bone density among adult males and females
Journal of Applied Nutrition. 53, 1-6 (2003)
We examined an increment of bone density by ingestion of the
OM-X capsules in healthy adult males and females.
We divided test subjects into two groups: a group with an
intake of the OM-X capsules and the other without the OM-X capsules. After a
certain period of time, we measured the bone densities of subjects in each
group. The bone density measurements were
analyzed based on the volume of bone mineral content in the humerus and ulna at
the test subjects’ non-dominant hand, bone mass, and the ratio of bone areas
and bone mass.
Overall, male subjects in the group given the OM-X capsules
showed about 20% higher scores in bone density compared to those without the
OM-X capsules. Female subjects with the OM-X capsules showed 12% higher scores
than those without the OM-X capsules. The same tendency was observed in every
In the aspect of bone areas, the group with the OM-X capsule
also showed higher values.
results suggested that an intake of the OM-X capsules is effective at increasing
bone density and bone area regardless of age or gender.
Purification of anti Escherichia coli O-157 components produced by Enterococcus faecalis TH10, an isolate from Malaysian fermented food, temph.
The substance that produced by Enterococcus faecalis TH10 showed a great antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli O157
Milk Science, 49: 2 (2000)
We examined antibacterial activities of
Enterococcus faecalis TH10 against Escherichia coli O157.
We extracted culture supernatant fluids of Enterococcus faecalis TH10. We prepared the extract apt for the test
and performed an antibacterial test with a paper disk method.
prepared extract from culture supernatant fluids of Enterococcus faecalis TH10
showed a potent antibacterial activity
against Escherichia coli O157. The antibacterial
active substances in the extract did not affect to Enterococcus genus. We considered that Enterococcus faecalis TH10
is different from bacteriocin which shows antibacterial activity against
the related species of lactic acid bacteria.
The influences on the VO2max of athlete with taking lactic acid bacteria (OM-X).
The OM-X capsule is effective in increasing the level of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max)
Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts. 3, 131-144 (1998)
We examined effects
on the level of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max: an index of a capacity
to take up oxygen per minute) after
taking the OM-X capsules.
The study subjects were 6 adult male athletes. We measured
their VO2max before taking the OM-X capsules. The subjects took the OM-X
capsules every day for two weeks. After the ingestion periods were concluded,
we measured their VO2max, hemoglobin levels in blood and blood lactate levels.
Subsequently, we evaluated the effect of the OM-X capsules toward VO2max.
The intake of the OM-X capsules for 2 weeks increased the VO2max
by an average of 30% per weight of the 6 adult male subjects being tested.
There was not much change in the blood lactate levels and the hemoglobin levels
in blood increased approximately 8.4 % after the intake of the OM-X capsules.
study has revealed that the OM-X capsules can increase the VO2max of athletes.
