These probiotics, which are also found in other dairy products such as milk, can also improve signs of ageing, the study claims.
The researchers concluded that the probiotics in Swiss cheeses extend lifespan by protecting against pathogens, provoking an anti-inflammatory effect on the immune system and lowering the body's stress responses.
