Probiotic Combo May Help Protect Against Gluten Intolerance in Children

Gluten intolerance is a condition that causes a person to react negatively after ingesting gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. A recent study suggests that taking a supplement containing the probiotics Lactobacillus plantarum Heal 9 and Lactobacillus paracasei 8700:2 may help boost the immune system and delay the onset of gluten intolerance in children.


Participants in the study included 78 children with a genetic pre-disposition to celiac disease. Forty of the children were given the probiotic combination of L. plantarum HEAL9 and L. paracasei with a total of 10 billion colony forming units per day, while the remaining children were given a maltodextrin placebo.


The researchers noted that probiotic supplement had a suppressing effect on celiac autoimmunity, which may delay the onset of celiac disease. They also noted a decrease in tissue transglutaminase autoantibodies in the supplement group, but an increase in the placebo group.


Researchers from Lund University led the study. It was presented at the International Celiac Disease Symposium in New Delhi, India, on September 10, 2017.


Previous studies suggest that a combination of these two probiotics may help reduce the risk of contracting the common cold.
