The Autism Probiotic Enigma...continuing.

Progurt Team - Monday, June 20, 2016

We at Progurt have long been beating the drum about the link between Autism and gut dysbiosis or an imbalance of unfriendly or bad gut bacteria compared to friendly or good gut bacteria. As there are more cells in the human gut than there are cells in the entire human body, certain special species of bacteria have to predominate to keep us healthy physically and mentally. We have featured many respected scholarly articles and trials showing the Autism/Gut bacteria link, including the 2014 study from Arizona State University in Tempe which found that autistic children had significantly fewer types of 3 critical types of gut bacteria compared with normal control individuals.

Again this week, a study was featured on RT News with the heading “Probiotics can ‘potentially’ cure autism-like disorders. We recommend this and other articles on Autism for you to consider:

Progurt Probiotic Years Ahead in Acknowledging Benefits on Mental Health and MS

Progurt Team - Monday, June 06, 2016

Progurt has many champions from the medical and scientific community advocating the multi-human strain probiotic to people with mental illness. Progurt has also always supported new research to evidence the gut-brain connection. In particular, successful trials on MS patients at the Microsearch Research Foundation were championed by Professor Earl Owen, the head of the Foundation. Dr Owen was an outspoken advocate of the beneficial effects that Progurt may have on MS patients.

It has taken nearly 2 decades for formal acknowledgement of such research. A medical team from Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston, Massachusetts have just published evidence that changes in diet and gut flora may influence astrocytes in the brain, and, consequently, neurodegeneration, pointing to potential therapeutic targets. The team's results are published in Nature Medicine, May 2016.

"For the first time, we've been able to identify that food has some sort of remote control over central nervous system inflammation," said corresponding author Francisco Quintana, PhD, an investigator in the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH. "What we eat influences the ability of bacteria in our gut to produce small molecules, some of which are capable of traveling all the way to the brain. This opens up an area that's largely been unknown until now: how the gut controls brain inflammation."
