Lactobacillus reuteri may help infants

Probiotic may help with colic in babies Reuters/Yahoo!News 1/8/07 "Treatment with the probiotic organism Lactobacillus reuteri may improve colicky symptoms in infants, new research suggests...Within 7 days of treatment, L reuteri improved colicky symptoms significantly, compared with simethicone. The investigators found that 95 percent of infants had a therapeutic response to L reuteri compared with only 7 percent of the infants in the simethicone group...It's possible that L. reuteri promotes an anti-inflammatory tone in the intestines," which has beneficial effects on the immune response and movement of the gut - Dr. Francesco Savino and colleagues from Regina Margherita Children's Hospital in Turin, Italy"
