Probiotics

The term probiotics refers to bacteria in the intestine considered beneficial to health. The most important healthful bacteria are lactobacillus, bifidobacteria, and saccharomyces boulardii.

Probiotics have a protective effect against acute diarrheal disease and have been shown to be successful in the treatment or prevention of various types of infectious diarrhea, notably traveler diarrhea. Taking probiotic supplements shortens the duration of acute infectious diarrhea and reduces stool frequency. It is especially important in helping children susceptible to infectious diarrhea.
