Lactococcus Lactis is a bacterium (used widely for industrial production of fermented dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt). Certain strains of Lactococcus Lactis (in particular the Strain HV219) will under certain circumstances be effective as probiotic, i.e. if taken with specific antibiotics.

It is often used in combination with OTHER probiotics.
