Pro­bi­otics fight fall al­ler­gies

First For Women - - Health -

So say sci­en­tists at the Uni­ver­sity of Flor­ida. In a study of 173 al­lergy suf­fer­ers, those who took a pro­bi­otic con­tain­ing Lac­to­bacil­lus gasseri, Bi­fi­dobac­terium bi­fidum and Bi­fi­dobac­terium longum for 8 weeks had a 357 per­cent greater re­duc­tion in symp­toms than those who got a placebo. The rea­son? Pro­bi­otics for­tify im­mune cells that reg­u­late the body’s tol­er­ance to al­ler­gens. A brand that con­tains the study-tested for­mu­la­tion: Ky­olic Kyo-Dophilus Diges­tion & Im­mune Health, $19 for 180 cap­sules, Vi­ta­cost.com.
