New Research Suggests Probiotics May Lower Cholesterol, Probiotic Action Reports with Insight from the New York Times

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

While Anaerobic Probiotics, which are ingested, have been used for years to aid in digestion, and promote intestinal function and topical/aerobic probiotics have gained attention as the best acne treatment, studies are now being conducted as to whether or not our favorite friendly germs can help lower cholesterol as well.

The New York Times released information on a recent study at Mcgill University in Canada, that those who took probiotics twice a day for nine weeks, saw a near 12 percent drop in bad cholesterol levels. While 127 of the patients were spilt, some given placebos, and others the actual probiotic, the results seemed consistent with those who took the supplement.

Adversely, several years ago, a similar study was done, but the patients switched to a placebo after several weeks and their cholesterol numbers had not changed since after the initial dosing.

Fernando Perez of Probiotic Action gives some insight on why Probiotics could help cholesterol, and insight on why the results may seem conflicting:

“Once probiotics are in the system, they continue to work for an extended period of time. Perhaps a reason the results did not change is because the probiotics were still thriving and helping to control the cholesterol. Probiotics have been known to have many positive effects on the digestive system by helping to break down food and absorb nutrients into the body, resulting in benefits to other body systems as well,” adds Perez.

Although results from the specific test involving cholesterol were inconclusive, the facts surrounding probiotics and their benefits from skincare, to digestive health are undeniable.

Probiotic Action is an advanced acne treatment that uses a topical probiotic containing the “good bacteria” that is naturally found on healthy human skin. By using probiotics, Probiotic Action is an effective treatment that restores the normal bacteria content on skin. Probiotic Action will successfully clear skin while protecting skin against bad bacteria, free radicals, and pollutants.
