Probiotics Reduce Allergy

Probiotics Reduce Allergy

Some people inherit the tendency to overreact to environmental allergens, overproducing antibodies. Doctors analyzed 25 studies involving 4,013 allergen-sensitive people and found that those whose mothers took probiotics while pregnant, or newborns who got probiotics right away, had much lower levels of antibodies, a sign they were less sensitive to allergens.
A mixture of probiotics seemed to offer the best protection, especially in highly sensitive infants, and the longer newborns took probiotics, the lower the level of antibodies. Discussing their findings, doctors suggested new studies of specific probiotics, and longer follow-up times in infants to optimize the benefit of probiotics.
