A study carried out in China has linked probiotic supplements to a reduction in flu-like symptoms.
Numerous scientific studies have shown benefits for probiotic supplements in diseases such as cancer, diabetes, infections, diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, metabolic diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, and others.
In a recent example of such research, a study carried out by scientists at Imperial College in London found that pregnant women taking a daily combination of fish oil capsules and probiotic supplements reduced the risk of their child developing allergies.
Even more impressively, as Dr. Rath has pointed out in open letters published in the New York Times and other international newspapers, vitamin C and other immunity-promoting micronutrients are effective even against serious life-threatening infections such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Bird Flu.
