About 40 Russian scientists have backed the ability of probiotics to help maintain ‘beneficial microbiota’ and help prevent gastrointestinal disturbances, after meeting in Moscow in April.

The Ferrosan-sponsored congress scanned recent probiotic scientific literature and concluded the bacteria could improve the health of pre-term infants by strengthening immune systems.

Ferrosan is a Danish supplements company that has probiotic supplements brands called Idoform and Bifiform and which was purchased by Pfizer for an undisclosed sum in February.
