    Last week we were talking about Microbiome around here and cool research being done on that. So I’ve spent a little time searching out more stuff and going down all sorts of rabbit holes. Anyhow, I found this bit of research on the potential benefits of probiotics themselves on RA – specifically the L Casei strain. Thought you all would like to see this for yourself. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24355439

    Suzanne, I stand corrected. I have changed the title of this post to remove “NIH”…my misunderstanding.
