Probiotics May Protect You from Developing Osteoporosis
According to recent research, published in the journal Immunity, probiotics can be used safely and efficiently to fight osteoporosis, widely-known as osteoporosis.
The researchers have used a mouse model to check the hypothesis. The mice received oral Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG supplement for more than 4 weeks.
Having analyzed the received data, the researchers found that the probiotic stimulated the growth of gut bacteria that produced a metabolite called butyrate which, in its turn, caused the production of a protein Wnt10b, vital for bone growth.
Senior study author Roberto Pacifici from Emory University in Atlanta, GA, says: “We were surprised by the potency of the gut microbiome in regulating bone and by the complexity of the mechanism of action of probiotics.”
