Probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus shows promise for treating inflammatory bowel disease and other
(Elsevier) A defective intestinal tight junction barrier, sometimes known as " leaky gut, " plays an important role in exacerbating and prolonging intestinal inflammation. New research reported in The American Journal of Pathology, published by Elsevier, shows that the probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus (L. acidophilus) strain known as LA1 can generate a rapid and sustained enhancement of this defective intestinal barrier and effectively treat intestinal inflammation by preserving and restoring the intestinal barrier.

The Pit In Your Stomach is Actually Your Second Brain
The world is so much bigger and more interesting than we can see with our naked eyes. If we could, we could watch cells grow, morph, and split again over and over again on the backs of our own wrists--or the billions of foreign cells living in and among our own, forming what scientists are beginning to call our "second brain." As researchers turn their microscopes to these hidden environments, they have discovered something remarkable: There's an entire ecosystem of bacteria and a vast neural network operating in our guts. This ecosystem is our second brain, and comprises some 100 million neurons, more than the spinal cor...

Probiotics 'aid memory in people with Alzheimer's disease'
Conclusion This randomised controlled trial looked at whether probiotic supplements help improve cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer's disease over 12 weeks. It also investigated the effect of probiotics on biomarkers for inflammation and metabolism in the body. It found treatment with probiotic supplements resulted in a small improvement in cognitive function compared with the control group. But everyone remained severely cognitively impaired, and it's not clear if the change in score was clinically important in terms of function. Although these are interesting findings, there are a few things to bear in mind...

Lactic Bacteria: Information on Digestive Health
Lactic bacteria, to include Acidophilus, that exists from the upper part of the small intestine to the lower part of the small intestine and Bifidobacterium, that exists from the lower part of the small intestine to the large intestine, have the specific property of transforming sugars almost exclusively into lactic acid and acetic acid that decrease the pH of the intestines and produce substances that suppress harmful bacteria. They are abundant in nature and are essential for human and animal survival. They are usually present in the skin, the digestive system and in the vaginal mucosa where they fulfill a number of func...
