LPS are large molecules that are the most abundant antigen found in the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria. It contributes to the 80% outer membrane of E. coli and salmonella. Lipids and polysaccharides are combined, and these polysaccharides are composed of O-antigen. A covalent bond connects the outer core and inner core of LPS. Lipopolysaccharides are often confused with ‘endotoxin’ even though an endotoxin is not related to LPS. They are the delta-endotoxin proteins that are produced by Bacillus thrungiensis. However, the first toxic activity of lipopolysaccharide is termed endotoxin. It was discovered by Richard Friedrich, who later distinguished endotoxins from exotoxins. According to him, exotoxins are toxins released by bacteria, while endotoxins are kept within the bacteria.

So What Is The Function Of Lipopolysaccharide?

LPS or lipopolysaccharide has a considerable contribution to the structural integrity of the bacteria. It helps stabilize the overall membrane structure and is responsible for increasing the negative charge of the cell membrane. Though LPS is non-essential to some bacteria, it is crucial to many gram-negative bacteria. A gram-negative bacteria could die if LPS is absent or removed. The lipopolysaccharide is responsible for inducing a strong response from the standard immune system. It plays a role in the firm adhesion of bacteria surface, sensitivity, and interaction with amoebae. It is also required to confirm omptin activity. For clarification, LPS function is to keep outside the bacteria moist and negatively charged to protect inside bacteria from any compounds that could damage the cell. Keeping the outside moist will allow the nutrients to pass through easily.

Role Of LPS In Health And Disease

The presence of LPS in cultured gram-negative bacteria is essential for treating the human gastrointestinal functional disorder. While LPS is also knowns as endotoxin, it has been associated with diseases such as; liver damage, Parkinson’s disease, chronic inflammation of the gut, and diabetes. LPS in a food supplement varies upon bacteria’s amount and identity during production. Enough LPS is beneficial, while it can be dangerous if it is in a large amount.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
