Probiotic foods can have different effects on the immune system of male and female. According to a study, the changes may also apply to human infants. The research revealed that 28-day old piglets produced different levels of immune cells, antibodies, and other immune-associated molecules depending on their sex.
The study said that dietary supplements help boost gut bacteria work differently in male and female. The scientist said that prebiotic inulin significantly increased the number of cells responsible for controlling the immune system. The changes were as the regulatory T-cells, which was seen in male guts but not in a female. As per the study by the University of Reading, some scientist said that the correct development of the immune system is essential in ensuring it responds appropriately to both harmful and harmless stimulation. However, the question still remains unanswered that why young girls tend to produce a more protective immune response to vaccination than boys. In fact, they also found that young girls also appear to have a more regulated immune environment in their intestinal tissues than that of boys. The effectiveness of Probiotic food supplements on the immune system does not have the same effect on boys and girls.
