NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

This double blind placebo controlled study is aimed to determine the effect of a probiotic combination of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) and Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12 on the gingival health, dental plaque accumulation, in healthy adolescents.

 

Probiotics

To do so, 108 schoolboys, aged 13-15 years, participated in this study during 4 weeks. They were divided into two groups: probiotics (n=54) and placebo (n=54). Both groups received two probiotic-laced or placebo lozenges twice a day during a four-week period. Plaque Index (PI) and Gingival Index (GI) were recorded at baseline and after four weeks.

A statistically significant reduction in GI was seen in the probiotic group as compared to the placebo group (P=0.012). A reduction in PI was found for both groups, with no difference observed between the groups after intervention (P=0.819). Probiotic lozenges significantly reduced levels of A. actinomycetemcomitans and F. nucleatum in saliva and plaque (P<0.05) and levels of P. gingivalis in plaque (P<0.05), while no significant changes were found in the control group.

 

The authors conclude that short-term daily consumption of LGG and BB-12 probiotic lozenges improved the gingival health in adolescents and decreased the microbial counts of A. actinomycetemcomitans, and P. gingivalis.

The aim of this study was to undertake a dietary intervention to investigate the effects of daily consumption of quinoa-enriched bread (providing 20 g quinoa flour) on cardiovascular disease risk markers compared with a 100% refined wheat bread control.

quinoa

To do so, 37 healthy overweight men (35-70 years, body mass index >25 kg/m²) completed a 4-week cross-over intervention, separated by a 4-week washout period.

Fasting blood samples were collected at the beginning and end of each intervention period. Continuous glucose monitoring was undertaken at the end of each intervention period. After 4 weeks of intervention, blood glucose and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol were significantly lower than baseline in both groups but there was no difference between quinoa and control. Anthropometric measures and other blood metabolites were not different between the two treatments. The cumulative area under the blood glucose curve for the last 4 days of the quinoa intervention tended to be lower than the first 4 days of wash-out (p = 0.054), and was significantly lower than the corresponding period of the wheat treatment (p = 0.039).

In conclusion, the authors have shown daily consumption of quinoa in this short-term intervention appears to modify glucose response, but has minimal effects on other cardiovascular disease risk biomarkers.

This randomized, double-blinded and placebo-controlled study aimed to validate the anti-depressant properties of Ulva lactuca observed in animals. For this, 86 subjects with anhedonia have been enrolled. They received a placebo or the U. lactuca extract (3 to 5 capsules per day, depending on subject body weight, 130 mg/capsule).

Ulva lactuca

After 84 days of supplementation, a reduction in the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology score has been measured in the supplemented group in comparison to placebo (p = 0.0389). The effect was mainly due to improvements in sleep disorders (p = 0.0219) and psychomotor consequences (p = 0.002).

 

In conclusion, this pilot study confirm pre-clinical data and suggest that U. lactuca may be effective for the management of some depressive symptoms.

NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

 

This randomized and placebo-controlled study examined the effects of three probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus CL 1285, Lactobacillus casei LBC80R and Lactobacillus rhamnosus CLR2) for the management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms.

113 subjects have been randomized in a 2:1 ratio and received for 12 weeks a placebo or 2 capsules of probiotics containing 50 x 109 CFU.

irritable bowel

With the exception of pain intensity and AR, the endpoints demonstrated a therapeutic advantage of active over placebo for IBS symptoms in at least some subject subgroups. Female and subjects with IBS-diarrhea subtype showed the largest and most consistent effects. Stool frequency and consistency was improved in comparison to placebo for subjects with IBS constipation and diarrhea subtypes. Finally, quality of life improved.

 

In conclusion, these results show that a probiotic mix can be used successfully for the management of IBS symptoms.
