Our expert says:
To my knowledge the cause of this disease is not fully known. Immune system problems are thought to potentially be a factor. But these are not related to the “good bacteria” but rather to the actual body cells on the gut lining.
Good bacteria are needed and too little of them or an imbalance allows more bad bacteria to thrive and may worsen the problem. Good bacteria (Reuteri in particular) have also been scientifically shown to assist in “mobilizing immune support”. Lastly “good bacteria” also assist with lactose digestion.
So keep up the Reuteri and Probiflora!
