Probiotic Yogurt Rebalances Intestinal Flora and Benefits Patients with Chronic Liver Disease

In a randomized, controlled trial involving 81 patients with chronic liver disease, supplementation with a probiotic yogurt containing Bacillus bifidus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, and Streptococcus thermophilu, 2 hours after meals, was found to be associated with lower levels of E. coli and reduced intestinal flora imbalance. Moreover, improvements in signs and symptoms, such as reduced debilitation, abdominal distention, and ascitic fluid, and improved appetite and food intake, were found. The authors conclude, "Probiotic yogurt reduces the levels of intestinal flora imbalance and has an additional therapeutic effect on patients with chronic liver disease."
