His obese animal is clearly lacking. Increase concentration F.Prausnitzii helped change the diet (the introduction of whole grains, Chinese yam and bitter melon).
This strategy will reduce the weight and increase the level of concentration of the microbe to 14.4%. At the same time falling rates of blood pressure, heart rate and cholesterol. A similar effect has been observed in humans. Experiment in Shanxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences, showed that probiotics have enabled hundreds of young obese people lose an average of 6.8 pounds in nine weeks. Who conducted the study with the participation of 1,000 people.
Other research has proven that probiotics reduce the risk of eczema in children. And they help protect against allergies. Swansea University staff tested the effect of probiotics on 450 mothers (given in the last three months of pregnancy and children in the first six months of life). After two years, the risk of eczema fell by 60%, and the probability of allergy reduced by 50%.
As bacteria H.pylori, which can lead to ulcers, it controls the hunger hormone, ghrelin, and protects against acid reflux. If a child with cystic fibrosis or elderly people actively taking antibiotics, the higher the risk of infection.
