Several lines of evidence suggest that some probiotic bacteria can stimulate Th1 cytokines and suppress Th2 responses,thereby may offer a new way of preventing or treating allergic diseases. Some probiotic strains also display potent immunemodulatory properties at the skin level and suggest that the probiotic supplementation might be useful in the management of atopic dermatitis and dry skin.

●Regulates the intestine permeability and balances the ecology of intestinal bacterial flora.
●Improves immunity along the intestine linings.
●Alleviates inflammatory reactions in the intestines.
●Reduces local/systematic allergic reactions and the subsequent cytokine production.
Clinical efficacy test
●A double-blind, prospective, randomized placebo-controlled study was conducted on 220 childrenaged 1-18 years with moderate-to-severe AD.
●The study shows a supplementation of probiotic AAP-2 may be effective in reducing the severity of AD than the placebo group (P < 0.001), and this difference -remained even at 4 months after discontinuing the probiotics.
●Shelf-life: 2 years
●Supplement: Capsule, tablet, sachet
●Increase the added-value of the original product : AAP-2 can be addedinto fermentation products, snacks, milk (resh/powder) drink, andcosmetics
