Arthritis and Probiotics: Is There A Hidden Link?

By    |   Tuesday, 18 August 2015 04:58 PM EDT

Arthritis joint pain may be improved by probiotics as they help reduce inflammation, research has shown, although more study is needed.

“People with inflammatory arthritis have been shown to have inflammation of the intestinal tract, which results in increased intestinal permeability,” registered dietitian nutritionist Sonya Angelone, nutrition consultant and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, told the Arthritis Foundation. “Probiotics may be able to help decrease the inflammation associated with increased intestinal permeability,” which lets certain bacteria into the bloodstream, triggering inflammation.

Probiotics work by improving the good bacteria in the gut. They are found in foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi, and kombucha. They can also be ingested via dietary supplements.

Scientists are increasingly noting the importance of gut bacteria for your health.

“There is an intimate relationship between [the gut microbiota] and disease,” Jeremy P. Burton, PhD, an assistant professor at the Canadian Centre for Human Microbiome and Probiotics, told the Arthritis Foundation. “Whenever there is a chronic disease that impacts the intestinal tract, including [autoimmune types of] arthritis, there is the potential to treat it with probiotics."

Immunologists have suspected the link between gut macrobiotics and autoimmune diseases, Diane Mathis of Harvard Medical School told Science magazine. Now, as more research is conducted, the hypothesis is being confirmed. "It's a very striking finding," she said.

Researchers have yet to determine why some people develop rheumatoid arthritis, which causes painful joints. Left untreated, it can progress to not only damage bones and tissues but also attack the lungs and kidneys.

In recent research, scientists have pinned down one bacteria, Prevotella copra, that appears in a high percentage of those who have rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis. It appears in fewer of those who are healthy, Science noted.

"A healthy diet helps keep the intestinal barrier strong and the immune system in a top fighting condition," Angelone told the Arthritis Foundation. "Healthy foods and probiotic supplements can work together to keep joints healthy and also keep the rest of the body strong.”
