Did you know that 80 percent of your immune system is located in your digestive tract? Having a healthy gut could lead to an overall healthy lifestyle, and recent studies have indicated that digestive tract-healthy probiotics could remedy allergy symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis.
The team at The Allergy and Environmental Treatment Center, LLC always consider your health issues and lifestyle before addressing possible treatment solutions. With new studies suggesting probiotics are beneficial in treating allergic rhinitis, adding these microorganisms to your diet could prove valuable for relieving allergic rhinitis symptoms. But, it’s best to consult Dr. Liszewski at The Allergy and Environmental Treatment Center, LLC prior to pursuing this endeavor.
Allergies are responses made by your immune system’s contact with allergens. Although the benefits of probiotic therapy depend on numerous factors, probiotics have played an important role in the prevention and treatment of allergic rhinitis for those involved in the study mentioned previously.
According to the Japanese scientific journal Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry, one study revealed that the probiotic called lactobacillus plantarum No. 14 (LP14) suppressed allergic immune responses in the test subject’s blood when he or she was exposed to a certain kind of pollen. Furthermore, the research indicated test subjects experienced less outward allergy symptoms like runny noses, itchy eyes and respiratory problems.
Another benefit to consuming probiotics? The study participants also lost weight while ingesting LP14, which suggests that probiotics are substantial for maintaining a healthy weight.
A study conducted by Complementary Prescriptions found similar results. The researchers stated, “Our results suggested that the weight-loss diet and probiotic yogurt had synergistic effects on T-cells subset specific gene expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, fat percentage, and body weight among overweight and obese individuals.”
It’s clear probiotics could play a substantial role in a person’s overall well-being.
