Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States and dietary habits account for a large percentage of the risk for developing CRC (Pitsouni et al., 2009)
Can probiotic supplementation help in the prevention of colorectal cancer?
Azcarate-Peril et al. (2011), The intestinal microbiota, gastrointestinal environment and colorectal cancer: a putative role for probiotics in prevention of colorectal cancer, examined the peer reviewed medical literature and conclude that probiotics help protect against the development of colorectal cancer. In their article, New scientific paradigms for probiotics and prebiotics, Reid et al. (2003) come to the same conclusion.
Additionally, Liu et al. (2011), in their randomized clinical trial on L. plantarum, L. acidophilus, and B. longum, concluded that probiotic treatment on barrier function and postoperative infectious complications in colorectal cancer surgery demonstrated beneficial results.
Therapeutic Food Probiotics to support CRC: according to the research, take 6 days before surgery, and 10 days after surgery (Liu et al., 2011).
Both the Original and Supernatant are formulated with probiotics shown in research to confer beneficial results.
