Side Effects Of Excessive Fermented Milk Consumption?
Hello, I want to ask the danger of consuming large amounts of Yakult in a few days, will it cause serious illness? In addition, how does it affect weight gain? Because sucrose is easily digested, will it help in increasing weight? Thank you in advance.
Ao Nurul, Thank you for the question.
Yakult is a fermented milk beverage product that contains probiotics namely Lactobacillus paracasei Shirota. This probiotic can help maintain digestive tract health. Consuming large amounts of probiotics, especially for those who have a low immune system, can cause serious infections in the digestive tract. In healthy people, the effects that can occur are usually classified as mild, in the form of flatulence or other symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders.
Apart from sucrose, this product also contains glucose-fructose syrup and essences. Consumption of large amounts of glucose, whether easily digested or not, can increase certain health risks, including weight gain and obesity.
Therefore, it is recommended that you continue to consume this product in accordance with the recommendations to avoid side effects or unwanted health effects.
I hope this helps.
