Improves allergic conditions



Allergy manifests in many ways, such as skin, food, nose or lung allergies.

Research provides evidence that  LACTOGG®’s probiotic strain is beneficial in:


●     atopic eczema (skin allergy)
●     cow milk allergy (food allergy)
●     allergic rhinitis (allergic nose)
●     bronchial asthma


Allergy is a form of immune deviation.
 
Allergy occurs when the immune system recognises substances normally found in our environment (eg. pollen or food component) as being harmful. When our immune system “mistakenly” identifies a substance as harmful, it launches a series of immune responses, resulting in inflammation. Very often it is the uncontrolled inflammatory reaction initiated by the immune system which gives rise to the symptoms of allergy and which injures our body.
 
Once someone becomes allergic, it is extremely difficult to “re-set” his or her immune system and make him or her non-allergic again.
 
GG probiotic has beneficial effects on allergy mainly because it can communicate with the immune system, gradually influencing it away from manifesting “allergic” behaviour to showing more “tolerance”.
 
It has numerous scientific papers documenting its ability to regulate and readjust the immune system so that the intensity of inflammation is reduced, protecting our body from being harmed.
 
Immune modification can be seen in the blood of allergic persons before and after taking the probiotic strain. Immune factors which promote allergy are suppressed when GG probiotic is introduced.

At the same time, antibodies called IgA, which protect people from developing allergy, are stimulated after consuming GG probiotic.

How should LACTOGG® be taken?

Anyone allergic:

At least 1 sachet or 1 capsule a day

Since LACTOGG® works by influencing the immune system, it should be taken daily for at least 6 weeks in order for the immune system to become less allergic.

Medication prescribed by your doctor should not be suddenly abandoned but should be continued according to your doctor’s instructions. In atopic eczema, improvement is noted when there is gradually less need for medication or when the interval between flare-ups gets longer.

Once LACTOGG®’s beneficial effects are evident, your doctor may consider reducing your allergy medication, while you continue taking LACTOGG®.
