What role do probiotics play in managing acid reflux?

Probiotics, beneficial bacteria that support digestive health, may play a role in managing acid reflux. They contribute to a balanced gut microbiota, potentially influencing factors like inflammation and the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). A healthy gut microbiome can enhance the integrity of the LES, reducing the likelihood of acid reflux.

While research on the specific impact of probiotics on acid reflux is ongoing, some studies suggest a potential benefit in symptom relief. However, individual responses can vary, and it's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating probiotics into a regimen for acid reflux management.
