Lactobacilli can stimulate the innate immunity, the “first responder” in the immune system hierarchy, and can drive mucosal immune mechanisms that have effects beyond the gut. In order to allow the immune-active components, which are usually sequestered inside the cells, to have unimpeded access to trigger and magnify the immune system response, the Lactobacillus rhamnosus cells in Russian Choice GI® are lysed (broken apart).* The ability of bacterial cell walls from Gram positive bacteria to stimulate and strengthen host immunity has been known for many years (Shimizu et al. 1981; Kato et al. 1984).* Sharpe and others have shown that lactobacilli cell walls contain teichoic acids and antigens (which can stimulate antibodies).
