Hi, I’m Carlos Esteban, author of BuyProbiotics.info. I have a degree and a PhD in biochemistry. I completed my doctoral thesis at the Laboratory of Lactic Bacteria and Probiotics of the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology. My thesis focused on the regulation of sugar metabolism in Lactobacillus casei. Title: “MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF CATABOLITE REPRESSION AND METABOLIC ENGINEERING IN LACTOBACILLUS CASEI”.
The aim of this website is to provide informative, but substantiated, information about what probiotics are and the beneficial health effects attributed to them. Under no circumstances should the content of this website be considered as medical advice. If you have any health problems, please consult your doctor.
The information shown on this website is based on the materials I prepared for the poster and conference “Beneficial effects of probiotics”, which was awarded the First Prize of the “III Premio Rotary Club Valencia Centro de Divulgación Científica, Ciencia Vida y Sociedad (2002)” organized by the University of Valencia (Spain). And that I later adapted as an appendix to my doctoral thesis in 2004, so the bibliography is the one available at that time. Little by little I will be updating the contents.
