New Study Shows Probiotic Strain Effective in Boosting Immune Response to Flu Virus
Date:5/5/2009

Bacillus coagulans boosts a key immune marker in healthy people

CLEVELAND, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study in the current issue of Postgraduate Medicine suggests that a specific strain of probiotics, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, PTA-6086, increases the body's immune response to the flu virus(1). Study data showed significant increases in T-cell production of TNF-alpha, a key immune marker, versus control upon exposure to influenza A in healthy adults who consumed a daily capsule of Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, PTA-6086 for 30 days. While many health professionals believe that probiotics can help people who have specific health conditions, there has been controversy surrounding the benefits of probiotics in healthy people. The new study supports the idea that probiotics benefit the healthy and is encouraging given the threats in recent years of flu pandemics, many of which are variants of influenza A.

The study measured the changes in blood TNF-alpha levels upon exposure to influenza A in 10 healthy adults prior to and following a 30 day regimen of Sustenex, a dietary supplement containing the specific Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, PTA-6086 probiotic strain. Results showed a 1709% increase in TNF-alpha levels upon viral challenge after subjects took Sustenex for a period of 30 days. An initial, increased production of TNF-alpha in response to viral exposure indicates a heightened immunological effect to protect against infection. Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, PTA-6086 is marketed under the trade
