Benefits of Probiotics

Although roll of probiotics is to suppost healthy gut, different probiotics migh serve other purposes as well.

Lactobacillus (L.) gasseri SBT 2055 (LG2055) significantly reduced the abdominal adiposity, body weight and other measures suggesting its beneficial influence on metabolic disorders

L. rhamnosus PL60 reduced body weight without reducing energy intake and caused a significant, specific reduction of white adipose tissue.

The increase in number of Bifidobacterium spp. was significantly and positively correlated with improved glucose-tolerance, glucose-induced insulin-secretion, and normalized low-grade inflammation.

Normal microflora ‘symbiota’ with it’s genes (genome) interact with our genes (host genome) and creates a healthier, stronger body (hologenome). That helps to decrease the gut infections and disorders along with strengthening the mucosal immunity. Probiotics as normal microflora help in synthesis of vitamins e.g. vitamin K, metabolism of lactose and lowers the level of cholesterol. Probiotics enhance the systemic immunity which further reduces the chances of allergy and inflammation by immunomodulation.
