Scientists have discovered that baby poop makes a surprisingly effective probiotic “cocktail” that could potentially help people with illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and cancer, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports.
The researchers took samples from the diapers of 34 healthy babies and isolated 10 bacterial strains. They found that this mixture of bacteria worked wonders in the gut.
The bacterial strains found in baby poop, they discovered, were especially good at helping bodies produce short-chain fatty acids, which play a key role in maintaining a healthy gut microbiome.
At least we will never run out of it!
