Harvard Medical School Continues Education About Benefits of Probiotics
Date:7/8/2009

epithelial barrier, while others impact different aspects of immune function," said Sherman.

Consuming certain specific probiotics, like those in cultured dairy products, can help strengthen the body's natural defenses by providing a regular source of "friendly" bacteria to the intestinal tract. This helps to correct any imbalance of beneficial to "bad" bacteria. Also, since about 70 percent of the human immune system is located in the digestive tract, certain probiotics have been found to help to optimize the function of the immune system as well as various functions of the intestinal lining.

Additional experts on the program included Stefano Guandalini, M.D. (Director of the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center), Martin Floch, M.D. (Clinical Professor of Medicine at Yale School of Medicine), and Eamonn Quigley, M.D. (Professor of Medicine and Human Physiology at Cork University Hospital). They shared their extensive knowledge and the latest research about probiotics in children, adults, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, respectively, as well as their insights about current preventive practices, treatments, and health promoting approaches.

Specific strains of probiotics have been clinically shown to be effective in the prevention and treatment of certain gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory infections, and allergic conditions. This educational program provided scientific evidence to health professionals who are increasingly recommending them to patients.

As new research has emerged demonstrating an increasingly wide range of uses for probiotics to benefit human health, probiotic foods and supplements continue to grow in usage and awareness in the US market and are expected to continue to expand.

The conference was made possible in part by an unrestricted educational grant provided by The Dannon Company, Inc. and Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd.
