Probiotics can be obtained from food, which can help the body to promote intestinal digestion, improve intestinal peristalsis, and effectively prevent intestinal bacteria from multiplying, thereby achieving a preventive health care function. So who needs to supplement probiotics?

1. Newborn babies: Infants and young children born after 3 months of age can be gradually taken some dairy products containing probiotics, especially those with caesarean section or premature birth. Because this type of newborn baby has fewer bifidobacteria in the intestine, it needs probiotics to supplement it, thus improving the baby's resistance. However, they are not recommended to take too much probiotic supplements.

2. People with frequent diarrhea or constipation: Diarrhea and constipation are the cause of imbalance in the intestinal regulation system. Probiotics can effectively regulate the number of bacteria in the intestines, thereby finding a balance between beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria in the intestines.

3. Tumor patients who have received chemotherapy or radiotherapy: Because the radiation of chemotherapy drugs and radiotherapy kills tumor cells, it also kills probiotic bacteria in the intestines, causing disorder of intestinal flora, resulting in constipation and bloating. Proper supplementation of probiotics can help patients promote intestinal digestion for better therapeutic results.


4. People who use too much antibiotics: People who need long-term use of antibiotics because of human diseases also need to take probiotics which can aid in some of the side effects of antibiotics, thereby regulating body structure. Please note that probiotics cannot be taken at the same time as antibiotics. If antibiotics must be taken, the interval between taking probiotics and antibiotics should not be shorter than 2 to 3 hours.

5. Indigestion: People with frequent indigestion always have bloating and anorexia after eating. Probiotics can help intestinal peristalsis without the use of drugs, thereby promoting digestion and enhancing the self-regulation of the intestines.

6. Lactose intolerance: lactose intolerance is congenitally deficient in lactase, causing lactose to be broken down and bloating and diarrhea. Probiotics help break down lactose in milk or other beverages and promote the body's absorption of nutrients.

7. Elderly: With the increasing age, beneficial probiotics such as bifidobacteria in the human intestinal tract will continue to decrease, and they will not be able to reproduce themselves. Only by external intake can these probiotics be obtained. Therefore, frequent supplementation of probiotics is also a health care method for the elderly.

Note: People with immunodeficiency or problems with the intestinal barrier need to take probiotics with caution.
