WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WFMY) -- Most of the time you throw away a dirty diaper without thinking twice about it! But what’s inside that dirty diaper could be a source of beneficial probiotics.
Yes, we’re talking about infant poop. Scientists at Wake Forest School of Medicine have developed a probiotic “cocktail” that’s derived from gut bacteria strains found in infant feces. They have found that the probiotic cocktail could help the body to increase its ability to produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).
