“Blueberries are rich in polyphenols, which have an antimicrobial and antioxidative effect. The combination of blueberries and probiotics reduced inflammation-inducing bacteria in the intestine at the same time as the number of health-promoting lactobacilla increased.”

This coincides with another informative read:

I recommend anyone having gas/bloating pains during this diet (I get them from taking too much CO or probiotics) look at this. Back when I was in the worst of it, I discovered that having ginger tea after my meals, plus plenty of water, could seriously diminish the pains. It also explains makes sense why kefir/yogurt should be increased gradually, and possibly eaten in combination with an anti-inflammatory food like blueberries (later in the diet if you’re strict) to balance the effect.
