A Probiotic Troika | Booster Shot Confusion

From eNewsletter 9/6/2021

DID YOU KNOW that three newly published studies laud the versatility of probiotics for mitigating myriad maladies? The British Society of Gastroenterology now recommends probiotics as a first line treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. In its updated guidelines appearing in last month's Gut, the verbiage suggests taking probiotics for up to 12 weeks and then reevaluate their effect. A study in Nutrients states that a mixed strain of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium can effectively reduce the incidence of eczema in infants under three years old. In an upcoming study from Food and Chemical Toxicology, researchers suggest that probiotics are multimodal detoxifiers. Specifically, probiotics degrade and remove food contaminants, modulate the gut microbial capability to metabolize xenobiotics, alleviate the adverse health effects induced by food contaminants, and are effective strategies for protection against xenobiotics exposure.
