Probiotics Strengthen tbe Body's Immune System
07 Sept 2011 - A new clinical study published in the acknowledged British Journal of Nutrition documents that probiotics is an effective means to support the immune system. The
key findings of the study indicate that daily consumption of probiotics may strengthen the immune system’s defense against common infections such as flu and colds.
The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in cooperation with the Luigi Sacco Hospital in Milan, Italy and the University of Milan.
The outcomes of this study, as well as data from previous studies on probiotics, show that supplementation with probiotic result in a strengthening of various parts of the
immune system. This will very likely translate into a clinical benefit, such as reduced rates of infection.

New Probiotic Combats Inflammatory Bowel Disease
ScienceDaily (Jan. 31, 2011) — You know the probiotics in your peach yogurt are healthful, but now it appears they may also be a powerful treatment for disease. A genetically
tweaked version of a common probiotic found in yogurt and cheese appears to be an effective therapy for inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative
colitis. It may also prove to be useful in colon cancer, another disease triggered by inflammation.
The study concluded that the probiotic restored intestinal peace by mobilizing messenger immune cells, called dendritic cells. The dendritic cells, in turn, enhanced the
production of other functional immune cells, regulatory T-cells that rebalanced intestinal and systemic inflammation.
"They essentially calm everything down and restore it to normal," Mohamadzadeh explained. The next step will be a clinical trial with the new form of Lactobacillus acidophilus.
