Probiotics for Liver Health

Hey, why not... I'll finish this week with a probiotics/microbiome theme. According to this newly published scientific review, probiotics may have beneficial effects on the prevention--and treatment--of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and related conditions.


Due to their ability to enhance intestinal barrier function, prevent production of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and modulate the immune system, certain bacteria have potential to prevent and treat NAFLD and other hepatic complications.

“It has been reported that alteration and equilibrium disruption of intestinal microbiota play a critical role in the induction and progression of liver disease,” explained the authors. “Hence, modulating the aforementioned alteration and favourably affecting the functions of [gut] microbiota may be a
key factor in the treatment/prevention of hepatic diseases.”

The authors pointed to probiotics as a safe and effective treatment that has the potential to influence gut barrier functions and immune cell regulations resulting in liver health improvements.
