Probiotic drinks tame IBS29th November 2011
Researchers at King's College London found that patients with IBS showed a positive improvement in their symptoms when they were given a probiotic drink.
Two thirds of the participants were given a probiotic drink each morning, while the rest were given a placebo. Patients taking the drink who normally had IBS symptoms of an average of 300 (out of a possible score of 500) dropped to 220 after three months. The head of the study, Professor Ingvar Bjarnason said: "It did not work for everyone, but around 60 per cent of those on the active product showed an improvement."
