These bacteria help maintain sound internal health especially in the gastrointestinal tract.

As Natural News reports, this study, which concurs with American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2012, is going to add new dimensions to the global health industry. The study has been conducted by involving a double blind study in humans and has shown that these probiotics can significantly reduce cholesterol levels in the human body without any sort of side effect. The study included 127 adult subjects with high levels of cholesterol. About half of them were given probiotics twice a day and the remaining   took placebo capsules. After two months, those taking probiotics had 11.6 percent lower levels of LDL than those who had been taking placebos. The cholesterol esters also dropped by 6.3 percent and the cholesterol ester saturated fatty acids were also reduced by nearly nine percent in people consuming probiotics.

Natural News had previously reported that an imbalance between the number of good and bad bacteria in the intestinal tract might also lead to Type II diabetes. The probiotics might also be helpful in treating and curing these diseases. Moreover, the probiotics are also useful in building the immunity against flu virus and can even provide effective treatment for agonizing bowel disorders.
