In Research Probiotics Help Alzheimers Sufferers

Research in recent years has shown a clear improvement in mental function of Alzheimers sufferers with the use of Probiotics.

Why do they work? We know that Alzheimers is an inflammatory condition and we also know that changes in gut bacteria enhance inflammation. Disruption in gut bacteria could therefore logically hasten brain degeneration in Alzheimers sufferers. Research has demonstrated that where there is a loss of diversity in gut organisms, as measured in populations in various countries, a direct correlation exists to increased prevalence of Alzheimer’s in those populations.

Could this change the life of 40 million sufferers worldwide? Potentially yes, which is very exciting when we consider that we currently have no cure for this condition. In a recent study, a cognitive assessment was made of a group of 60 patients over 12 weeks, half on a probiotic and half on a placebo. The results were stunning, with the placebo group showing continued mental decline, but the probiotic group showed a significant decline in inflammation. The hope was that the probiotic would stop brain function decline, but it actually improved brain function amongst subjects!

The important message here is that inflammation is directly determined by the healthy, balanced gut bacteria. It has major implications, not only in terms of brain function, but in relation to a number of other diseases where inflammation is an underlying cause, like Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and even cancer.

We recommend Using a Foodstate Probiotic, as it is better absorbed, used and retained than other probiotics. Click Below For More Details:
