Multiple human studies have shown that probiotics, healthy microbes found in the human digestive tract, support a healthy digestive system. This foundation has given rise to related research, including studies conducted in an artificial environment outside of living organism, such as a test tube or Petri dish (in vitro).

The latter strain was shown to:
This was not a clinical study, so plenty more research needs to be done, including with humans, to know how much weight to give these initial findings.
