Poop is good for you…What?
Doctors are saying that poop capsules could be a cure for obesity, gut infections, UTIs, and maybe even multiple scleroses. Weird huh?
Currently, poop is only used to treat serious infections (it’s a great probiotic!). Even though poop is only used in a clinical setting right now, doctors are hoping for it to become a more common practice in the future. The future plan is for healthy donors (prescreened) to be able to donate their poop to be freeze-dried and encapsulated.
This is all still pretty far in the future, but the clinical success rate is pretty high for these so-called poop pills. So even though this is an unusual practice, it is pretty neat that even poop has its health benefits.
