Bile Salts and Bile Salt Hydrolase

By: Chloe McClanahan, Biofiles Edition 6.2

Several Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotic strains exhibit bile salt hydrolase (BSH) activity and are suspected to play a role in combating the negative effects of bile via detoxification of bile salts. However, enhanced BSH activity is potentially detrimental to the host. More research is needed to understand this dynamic between probiotics and bile salts.
