Are Probiotics The Future In Maintaining Good Bone Health?

The use of probiotics in maintaining good bone health is a real possibility for the future after researchers point to their use in elderly women, which resulted in a 50% reduction in age-related bone loss. Research company ‘BioGaia AB’ tested 90 women aged 76, half of them received a mixture of a freeze-dried formulation of L.reuteri 6475 while the other half received a placebo. When the study finished after a year, the researchers found that the women who received the powder with the active bacteria had only lost half as much bone in the skeleton compared with those who received inactive powders.
