If you are eligible to participate in the study, you will be randomly assigned to the probiotic or placebo group.

Research suggests that the gut microbiome modulates nutrient absorption and can have an impact on bone density.

We will test your microbiome by collecting stool samples at 3 timepoints (baseline, 6 months and 12 months). We will provide you with results so you can share them with your health care practitioner.
