MORTON GROVE, Ill., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods (NASDAQ: LWAY), public health advocate and member of the UN Foundation's Global Entrepreneurs Council, announced today that she has submitted comments for review and possible inclusion in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Her recommendations encourage health practitioners, doctors, nutritionists and other related professionals to understand and promote the health benefits of probiotic-rich foods such as kefir and yogurt. Her submitted comments include a medical study titled "Kefir improves lactose digestion and tolerance in adults with lactose maldigestion," which explored the digestive benefits of kefir which compared favorably to yogurt. Lifeway kefir was also featured in a study titled " Resolution of Recurrent Clostridium difficile-associated Diarrhea Using Staggered Antibiotic Withdrawal and Kefir" performed by Dr. Johan S. Bakken that correlated the resolution of diarrhea when subjects consumed daily kefir intake with antibiotics.

"I submitted my recommendations because I want to be sure Americans possess the latest information about healthy food options such as probiotics so they can live healthy and happy lives," said Ms. Smolyansky. "The guidelines should incorporate the latest nutritional thinking that includes foods like kefir and other probiotic-rich foods that can aid digestive health, improve immune response, and aid in the management of several chronic ailments."

The Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion produces the Dietary Guidelines for Americans every five years along with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). A committee of nutrition experts is tasked with review peer-reviewed science articles on diet and health as well as contributions from nutrition industry experts such as Ms. Smolyansky. The 2010 version of the guidelines recommended individuals should balance eating more vegetables, fruits, and seafood with increased physical activity.
