Several studies have shown that probiotic supplements may help to fortify the immune system. Probiotics products contain lactobacillus acidophilus, a species of “good bacteria” often found in yogurt, and suggested to promote overall good health.
Most probiotic products claim to improve immune system, reducing the severity and duration of a cold, as well as enhancing respiratory health. Additionally, many products are believed to support and promote optimal digestive system function. An April 2011 study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a lactobacillus probiotic seemed to improve the immune system’s response following a flu vaccination.
Probiotics are generally safe and fairly affordable and may be just what you need to battle the cold and flu.
