Probiotic-Enhanced Fermented Milk Product Associated With Improved Gut Health

Probiotics are well known for their benefits to gut health. A recent study suggests that a fermented milk that contains the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium lactis (B. lactis) CNCM I-2494 and four strains of lactic acid bacteria may help relieve gastrointestinal distress by modifying the gut microbiota.


The researchers examined data from three studies that included 598 people who were given either a probiotic fermented milk containing the bacterial strain Bifidobacterium lactis CNCM 1-2494 as well as four strains of lactic acid bacteria or a placebo daily for at least four weeks. All of the participants were at least 18 years old and had gastrointestinal distress at the onset of the study.


Analysis of the data showed that consumption of the probiotic fermented milk product had significant improvements in overall gastrointestinal comfort when compared with consumption of the control product. The probiotic fermented milk was also associated with reduced digestive symptoms, including bloating, pain/discomfort, flatulence, and rumbling stomach.


Researchers from the University of York conducted the study. It was published in in the October 2016 issue of Therapeutic Advances in Gastroenterology.


Bifidobacterium lactis CNCM 1-2494 is a probiotic strain that has been associated in previous studies with reduction in stress-induced gut hypersensitivity. It can be found in dairy products or taken as a supplement.
