The Good Bacteria In Our Gut Is More Powerful That We’ve Thought

yummyyogurtThe good bacteria in our system deserves even more respect. As you probably know, because of the overuse of antibiotics we’ve been developing antibiotic resistant pathogens.

Researchers reported in Infection and Immunity that certain strains of probiotic bacteria may help benefit the immune system.

The researchers compared two groups of mice who were injected with an antibiotic-resistant strain of harmful bacteria. One group was given the probiotic Barnesiella. The mice not given the Barnesiella were unable to clear out the antibiotic resistant pathogens.

So…getting more probiotics into your diet by using Keifer and Yogurt might help you fight off dangerous bacteria.
