One of the benefits of giving talks like Limitless is that I get great audience participation and always learn something myself. This night in the Q and A session a patient asked me about Lactobacillus reuteri and its relation to osteoporosis. I had never heard of it! So, I attach a link to the article I just reviewed for your own education.
What it basically says is that the probiotic supplement L. reuteri appears to decrease bone loss in the tibias (shin bones) of women aged 75-80. A few strong points of this study are that it’s in a high quality scientific journal and it fits the criteria for what I would call “good science” in that is a double-blind, placebo controlled, randomized study. My conclusion after reviewing the article is that this is a valid study suggesting the probiotic L. reuteri is likely to decrease bone loss in women 75-80 and that we need larger studies to confirm this finding. If you are ever looking at reports suggesting the efficacy of a product look for double-blind, placebo controlled randomized studies published in reputable, recognizable journals.
