The Danger Of Excessive Consumption Of Probiotic Drinks In Infants?
Good evening doctor
Yakult is a fermented milk drink containing probiotic Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota. Probiotics are bacteria or fungi that have health benefits, especially the digestive tract. In the human digestive tract itself there are various good bacteria.
Some conditions that require probiotic supplementation include:
Diarrhea due to viral / bacterial / parasitic infections Diarrhea due to lactose intolerance Diarrhea due to antibiotic use Irritable bowel syndrome long term immunity. Side effects of using probiotics are nausea, flatulence, diarrhea (mild), and stomach cramps. For adults themselves, the manufacturer recommends consuming 1 bottle / day. Small children should not be routinely given probiotics, unless there are indications (diarrhea or other gastrointestinal disorders) or doctor's instructions because excessive consumption will only disturb the balance of bacteria in the intestine. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
