[Literature Library] Effects on the gut microbiota and immune response after probiotic supplementation among pregnant women
This study was to examine the effect of probiotics on the gut microbiota and immune response. The gut microbiota varied during the third trimester of pregnancy and structure of gut microbiota remained stable after probiotic supplementation. Meanwhile, this study demonstrated the immunomodulatory effects of probiotics, which enhanced the shift from anti-inflammatory state to pro-inflammatory state. More research is needed to further investigate.
