H2PRO Research News: Gestational Diabetes reduced by Probiotics

Probiotics are making news in the maternal health community.  A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition has studied 400+ expectant mothers’ risk for gestational diabetes.

Mothers that received 6 billion CFU’s of Lactobacillus rhamnosis (HN001) between 14 and 16 weeks of gestation had a reduced risk of gestational diabetes.  Even mothers with a history of gestational diabetes had a lowered risk.  This is the first study to report a role for probiotics in the prevention of gestational diabetes.
