The study researchers found that probiotics contained in the varieties of Swiss cheese – especially the Emmental and Gruyeres slow down the inflammation in the body, thus strengthening the immune system, according vesti.ru.
Emmental cheese, traditional Swiss cheese made from cow’s milk, for example, contains a Propionibacterium freudenreichii bacterium, which converts the lactate to acetate, propionate and carbon dioxide. While acetate and propionate are known for their immunomodulatory properties, especially when they are in the human gut.
The scientists added that the important for immunity probiotics are found in other dairy products, but not in such quantities, as in the case with cheese. Moreover, in a study conducted at the round worms, were able to see that Swiss cheese can most strongly influence lifespan by combating the pathogenic bacteria that provoke inflammation and cause a stress response in the body.
