“Probiotics And Phytonutrients Reverse Biological Age By 3 Years, Researchers Find” [Source: nutraingredients-usa.com]
In recent years there has been growing interest in the use of probiotics for improving health and preventing disease. In addition to playing key roles in the health of the intestinal system, research shows probiotic microorganisms also support the immune system and can have positive effects on infectious diseases, cancer, allergies, metabolic diseases, and other health problems. A recent large population study indicated that taking probiotic supplements may even help lessen the risk of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
The study featured in this news story also emphasizes the benefits of a high intake of the phytonutrients curcumin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), and quercetin. Also known as phytobiologicals, scientific evidence shows that these natural plant components provide numerous positive health effects and help reduce the incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and cancer. Scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have conducted extensive research using phytobiologicals in combination with vitamins and other micronutrients.
