Probiotics Aren’t Just For Digestion

We are big fans of probiotics.  They have been researched for their role in our diegestive health, but they have many other roles as well such as supporting our metabolism and immune system.

A new research study looked at women with bacterial vaginosis, a condition where the balance of good and bad bacteria has been distrupted.  They supplemented with either a probiotic or placebo for 6 weeks.

At the end of the study, only 26% of the placebo group had their balance restored while 61% of the probiotic group did.  Jarrow Formulas has the same formula used in this study.
