Beneficial Effects of Probiotics on the Onset of Gluten Intolerance

Decreasing Gluten

Another study has been conducted related to the effects of probiotics towards celiac disease. This study was published in the Journal of Probiotics and Health. The findings suggest that VSL#3, a probiotic with eight different bacterial strains, is capable of decreasing gluten due to the bacterial strains that are considered as gluten-digesting microbes. Therefore, aside from delaying the onset of celiac disease on genetically pre-disposed children, probiotics can also be used to lessen the gluten in the body of celiac disease patients.
