    "L. gasseri is a probiotic that recently gained in popularity, due to its weight-reducing, obesity and metabolic syndrome-combating properties. This amazing probiotic boosts your immunity, helps with allergies, and has many other beneficial properties."

    "Lactobacillus gasseri is a lactic acid bacteria that elicits various health benefits through its antimicrobial activity, bacteriocin production, and immunomodulation of the innate and adaptive systems (R)."

    Not a recommendation just thought it was interesting. (Most of the research seems to have been done on mice/rats.)

    Many PwME seem to have problems tolerating lactid acid bacteria, though. And compared to other species in the microbiome, they are not very important.

    Unfortunately this seems to be an ad which their site has created for an affiliate which pays them revenue to promote their product.

    I think it would be more productive to discuss the specific research, and leave the ad (and traffic to it) out of the equation :p

    That would explain some of their fundamental errors involving basic scientific concepts :p
