Does Consuming Fermented Products Cause Certain Side Effects?
Dear Mr / Mrs Doctor,
Hello Ray, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the consumption of yogurt and probiotic drinks is good as long as it is consumed in moderation. In one day a person is recommended to consume at least 3 servings of milk and dairy products (including yogurt, cheese-cheese) to meet calcium needs in a day. In yogurt also contains probiotics that are good for maintaining digestive health so you can do yogurt consumption every day. But note that in yogurt products are also not infrequently contained in sugar (or you add sugar or syrup when taking it). This unnecessary addition of calories from sugar is not expected if you consume excessive yogurt.
For probiotic drinks themselves, the consumption of 2 bottles a day for adults is the recommended amount. Although most people consume excessive probiotic drinks do not give any side effects, in some people excessive consumption of probiotics can cause symptoms such as flatulence, nausea, and constipation. Some people can also experience headaches after consuming probiotic drinks. In people with weak immune system conditions, deep bacteria, probiotics can enter the bloodstream and cause infections throughout the body / sepsis (very rare).
If you are healthy and do not have certain medical conditions. You can consume yogurt or probiotic drinks every day, provided the amount is not excessive. If you have certain medical conditions, you should consult with your doctor before consuming this type of food and drink.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
