What's involved

Our study will examine bone density markers (bones) using a number of scans, your microbiome (bugs) and blood samples (biomarkers) to measure the effectiveness of the probiotic intervention for post-menopausal women.

Participants will be asked to take a probiotic daily for 12 months and attend the lab for 3 visits (baseline, 6 months, 12 months) for scans, stool sample and blood collection, and completion of questionnaires.
