In this study, Spanish researchers separated from the wine in 11 bacteria, including common strains of lactic acid bacteria in yogurt, as well as the bacteria associated with the brewing process wine Lactococcus and Pediococcus genus. The latest study found that wine also contains bacteria beneficial to human health.

“So far, many studies have pointed out, yogurt and other fermented dairy products are the best source of probiotics, so little research on wine and probiotics.” Researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, Dolores Gang Gonzalez (Dolores Gonzalez) said.
But now, as more and more people have lactose intolerance issues, as well as the adverse effects of fermented dairy products contain cholesterol, looking for a better source of probiotics is necessary.
Probiotics are living organisms, the appropriate amount of intake can bring health benefits. Consumption of probiotics can maintain healthy intestinal flora and intestinal function. And studies have shown that probiotics may also have anti-cancer and cholesterol-lowering properties.
In this study, researchers examined extracted from the wine probiotic viability in the human gastrointestinal system. Probiotic foods must be able to survive the harsh digestive environment, will have an impact on human health.
The researchers simulated the human gastric juice, bile and lysozyme, an enzyme in human saliva high levels, can destroy the bacterial cell wall. They found that probiotics can survive under these conditions, even stronger than some of the known health benefits of the viability of the bacterial strain.
The researchers also investigated whether these probiotics can be attached to the intestinal wall in humans. The result is affirmative, which means that these bacteria “may produce beneficial effects on the human body, such as the exclusion of pathogens” or harmful bacteria.
It is particularly worth mentioning, is known as a P. pentosaceus CIAL-86 has a very good adhesion of the ability of the bacteria, and can be effective against E. coli.
Wine probiotic similar to other food sources of probiotics, such as yogurt, fermented dry sausages, pickles, olives, fruits, cereals, meat or fish. But the new findings do not mean that drinking two glasses of wine a day can provide enough probiotics. Because so many of the bacteria in the curing process stabilized the wine are removed.
But we can still separated from the wine made in the probiotic health care products, or add to the functional foods.
