Looking Into Probiotics

With the essential connection made between human health and good bacteria, it is no wonder there have been so many studies on the use of probiotics that supplement the body’s own population of bacteria.

Currently, over 1,300 human clinical trials are listed on the ClinicalTrials.gov website and nearly 300 more on the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) of the World Health Organization.1 That’s more than 1,600 studies conducted on human beings, which helps to dispel any thought that there’s not enough evidence to support the use of probiotics.

Additionally, a worldwide team of scientists created a massive database that catalogs over 200,000 genomes (an organism’s complete set of DNA) and over 170 million protein sequences from more than 4,600 bacterial species found in the human gut.2

This accumulation of research will help to further understand the physical properties and functions of these organisms in relation to keeping people healthy.

There’s no telling how much more will be revealed in the future regarding the importance of probiotic use for maintaining good health.
