Good report via FoodsMatter on this: Probiotics found to reverse the progression of coeliac disease .
Here is the conclusion of the study on mice induced with coeliac disease (poor things!) and then reversed using probiotic strains.
The selected probiotic treatment reversing disease development will allow the study of the role of probiotics as a new therapeutic approach of CD.
I would certainly agree that probiotics are absolutely essential to the treatment of gluten-related disorders (there’s that new term I mentioned here) but you have to have the right strains, the right amounts, and they need to be taken at the right times. And they need to be truly gluten free, of course. It’s hardly a ‘new therapeutic approach’ for us naturopaths/nutritionists who have been championing probiotic therapy for many years now but nice to see mainstream medicine catching up. Again. (Naughty me, being cynical there…).
In this case, the researchers used saccharomyces boulardii. Recognise it? You should if you are on full treatment; I already included it. I thank you. It will be in the Barrier Plan too, along with other strains also proven to lower inflammation, balance immunity, induce enzyme production and lots more besides.
