What are Probiotics Good For? Lot's of Gynecologic Conditions, and Better For Brains As well!

It is possible to get probiotics in foods like yogurt and we do know they are healthy for a variety of bowel and bladder health. For vaginal health we know that the lactobacillus is our bacteria that keeps other bacteria in check. And there are many types of lactobacillus so it's important to keep track of these studies to see what will be shown in the future as potential for health benefits. Antibiotic prescriptions are thought to be the ultimate cause for many conditions. kA week of cipro can throw off the normal gut flora for a month. And in the US and England children have 10-20 courses of antibiotics before their 18th birth day according to some research. So getting the right bacteria may be very important for prevention of diarrhea, allergies, and dental disease among other conditions. But it might just be the thinking "girls" treatment as well as prevention! Many studies have looked at bladder infection protection by taking the right probiotics, and the most recent confirmed probiotics can prevent urinary tract infections, called UTIs. One such probiotic is called Lactin-V and it's the beneficial lactobacillus crispatus organism that is used as a vaginal suppository. If the new lactobacillus works for women those who take it will have less bladder infections. UTIs can have serious health consequences if left unchecked, so try to get them under control! In a recent proof-of-concept study a group of women were fed a fermented yogurt product containing the probiotics Bifidobacterium animalis subsp Lactis, Streptococcus thermophiles, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, and Lactococcus lactis subsp Lactisusing on a functional MRI (fMRI) test which is one way of telling if the brain is functioning to process thinking, researchers found that women who regularly consumed pro biotic-containing yogurt showed altered activity of brain regions that control brain wave processing of emotion and sensation. That study was funded by Danone Research.
