ANTIBIOTICS AND DIARRHEA - In case of illness or infection caused by harmful bacteria, we use antibiotics in order to destroy them. However, antibiotics do not only destroy the pathogenic bacteria for which purpose they are prescribed and used, but they destroy the beneficial intestinal bacteria as well*. This causes imbalance between the beneficial and harmful intestinal bacteria, which often causes various digestion problems, such as stomach ache, constipation or diarrhea, sometimes even nausea and vomiting, as well as weakening of the immune system and the overall level of resistance of the human organism to harmful effects. Numerous studies have confirmed that taking in beneficial bacteria while under antibiotic therapy can reduce the risk of diarrhea.
DIARRHEA - Diarrhea is the second most frequent medical problem in children, immediately following respiratory infections. The symptoms include an increased number of stools a day and an increased amount of water in the stools. Diarrhea is mainly caused by viruses and bacteria. Viral infections are, however, significantly more common. Diarrhea caused by bacteria more frequently occurs in summer, as higher temperatures ensure favorable conditions for the reproduction of bacteria in the food, and during traveling as a result of changing the commonly used food items, the environment and eating habits in general. Diarrhea is a result of imbalance of the intestinal microflora, i.e. an increased number of harmful bacteria. If diarrhea causes serious problems, continues for more than 24 hours or the child is showing signs of dehydration, it is necessary to seek medical advice.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is one of the most researched types of lactic acid bacteria, and there are numerous studies that prove its beneficial effects on infants and children in general.
