Multi-strain Probiotics May Lower Endotoxin Levels and Cardiometabolic Markers in Diabetics

Could probiotics decrease endotoxin levels and other cardiometabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)? This study set out to assess whether multi-strain probiotic supplementation could reduce endotoxin levels and consequently improve cardiometabolic profiles in metabolically-high risk populations. This 6-month, single-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial included 150Read

Could Specific Probiotic Strains Modulate Brain Processing and Connectivity?

Probiotic Strains May Modulate Brain Processing

Research show how probiotic strains modulate brain processing and connectivity The interconnection between the gut microbiome and brain interactions for neurotransmitter expression, neurodevelopment, and behavior is a relatively new area of science. Rodent studies abound, which supports the basic level of knowledge that multi-strain probiotics can influence this connectivity, howeverRead

DISCOVERY: New Study Points to the Mouth and Gums as a Transmission Path for COVID-19

Are the Mouth and Gums a Transmission Path for COVID-19? Could Good Oral Health and Mouthwash Reduce Risk? Just released research, published in Genesis Publications, introduces a new model explaining why gum disease and poor oral hygiene could be a more accurate predictor for COVID-19 severity than patient age,ethnicity, orRead

Multi-Species Probiotics and Multi-drug Resistance Gram-Negative Bacteria

Drug resistance among the elderly is common, particularly for residents in long-term care facilities. Multi-species probiotics may provide a solution for patients prone to repeated infections because of multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria. ABSTRACT/ Residents in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) are frequently colonized by multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria, putting them atRead

Can Selected Probiotic Strains Reduce Risk of Eczema in High-Risk Children?

eczema in high risk children, probiotics

Skin and allergic diseases are on the rise in children. One hypothesis is that there is reduced exposure to microbial components early in life. There are five clinical studies currently available regarding the primary prevention of atopic eczema using probiotic bacteria for allergic diseases. And none have shown promising results,Read
