Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
In a new article from eProbiotics.com the author discusses how recent scientific research demonstrates improved immune system response to the flu virus when supplementing with probiotics, especially in patients over 70 years of age. In the article, it is mentioned that probiotics are the good bacteria that are found naturally in the digestive system to keep a healthy balance and can be found in food sources such as kefir, yogurt, or even probiotic supplements.
The article details how doctors have discovered that improved antibody and immune system response to flu occurs when there's a minimum of 85:15 ratio of good bacteria to bad bacteria. Subjects with a lower ratio demonstrated a decreased response to flu when exposed to the virus.. Health professionals suggest taking in between 10 and 25 billion colony forming units of healthy bacteria each and every day. Taking in this specific amount of probiotics supplies the good bacteria needed in order provide increased immune system and antibody response to the flu virus.
