Posted on Thu, 11 Jan 2018  Comments: 1
Attention has never been higher on the type of bacteria that is present and growing inside our digestive tract and the impact it has on our health. As state of the art research continues to strengthen our understanding of the important roles beneficial bacterial have within our bodies healthy people are asking how probiotics can benefit them.

What we do know about probiotics is that each of us has a different and individual composition of beneficial bacteria in our digestive tract that is completely unique to us.

A connection between your gut and your brain? It seems surreal but the benefits of enhanced digestion are showing positive impacts on many systems in the body including cardiovascular health, obesity, depression & mood, along with symptoms of inflammatory and irritable bowel conditions.
KGK Science is currently conducting a clinical research study in London to evaluate the effects of a multi-strain probiotic blend on digestive health in healthy men and women ages 18 to 64. Along with additional probiotic studies KGK hopes to analyze the results in a healthy population to better understand which bacteria are helping the most.

I am going through what you have discussed here
Although I am in an older age class (79) it maybe be of benefit to the clinic to look into testing people who are in an older bracket
As we are living longer at this juncture or stage of life my feeling is your clinic would benefit from a wider audience
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this discussion and I hope your clinic sees this and all would benefit
