Research shows that you have more bacterial cells in your body than you have human cells. Your gut is home to tens of trillions of bacteria1 not to mention that 70 to 80 percent of your immune tissue is situated in your digestive tract.2 There is a growing body of evidence documenting that probiotic bacteria have a beneficial effect through their ability to modulate the mucosal immune system. Research shows that probiotics influence multiple mechanisms in the immune and inflammatory response systems.3
Similarly, studies show that probiotics have the ability to modulate innate immune responses. Other studies support this claim and suggest that probiotics may serve as a potential approach for therapy.4 Thus, balancing your individual microbiome through proper diet and probiotic supplements may lead to an improvement in your symptoms.1- PLoS Biol. 2016 Aug 19;14(8):e1002533.
