Last week in our blog, Joe found it news worthy to discuss natural treatments for seasonal allergies. Today, he is referring to same article because it also discussed the use of Probiotics in reducing allergic immune responses.
“Probiotics: Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the most commonly used probiotics, microorganisms that are used to promote health. Animal research suggests that L. acidophilus may reduce allergic immune responses. There is some evidence that milk containing L. acidophilus may relieve hay fever symptoms, but other studies found conflicting results. Research also suggests that Bifidobacterium longum BB536 (BB536), a Gram-positive bacterium that produces lactic and acetic acids, may reduce symptoms associated with Japanese cedar pollen (JCP) allergy. At this time, there is limited information available on other types of allergies.”
