Clinical documentation is a cornerstone for probiotics. From the definition of probiotics - “Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host”1 – it becomes evident that probiotics must pose a beneficial effect.
What to look for?
In order to verify the potential efficacy of a specific probiotic, it is essential to document the effect in scientific studies. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) highlight that “…randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials should be undertaken to establish the efficacy of the probiotic product.” 2 When studying the efficacy of probiotics it is key to do so at strain level “… since the probiotic effect seems to be strain specific.” 2
