Uses For Probiotic 123 G.I. Health: Animal and human studies have indicated that L. acidophilus supports the mucosal lining of the G.I. tract, helping to maintain healthy G.I. barrier function. Several trials involving children have also revealed that mixed probiotic bacteria supplementation helps support healthy yeast balance and G.I. comfort. Another study involving almost 200 children suggested that a probiotic supplement containing bifidobacteria provided support for occasional diarrhea.
Immune Health: Research indicates that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. Additionally, they support healthy cytokine production, particularly in the colon. One placebocontrolled 2-month study involving 27 infants indicated that probiotic supplementation promoted healthy serum CD4 levels and skin comfort.
