Probiotics could lower allergy risk among children… is it true?
As stated by a new meta-study all those mothers who usually consume probiotics while pregnancy are supposed to be at a lower risk of allergies as compared to other kids.
As per the analysis of older studies it has been suggested that it might be the case, although doctors in the present scenario do not really recommend pregnant women or young children to take or not take probiotics.
All the bacteria residing in the gut and digestive tract have directly been linked to immune system health. Getting lots of probiotics in the diet such as micro-organisms like the ones in yeast and yoghurt that tend to have a beneficial effect over the balance of gut microbes, this might logically help support a healthy immune system as well, said the researchers. As allergies and asthma both rise from hypersensitive immune responses, many trials have been set out so as to analyse the effect of probiotic supplements on those conditions.
Lets know about probiotics.
Probiotics generally refer to live ‘good’ bacteria, that can possibly be beneficial to its host. These are usually the antithesis of antibiotics that are derived from bacteria to low down or destroy other bad micro-organisms and act against bacterial infections so as to form the criteria for almost all modern medicinal treatments.
Probiotics as dicussed on the other hand are known as the balancing agents for “non-friendly”, pathogenic, gut bacteria and tries to reverse their damage. If there are not an ample amount of probiotics in the system it can surely lead to digestive problems, as well as headaches and other issues. Eatables that are really rich in probiotic bacteria include curd, yoghurt, milk, fermented tea, dark chocolates olives etc.
