The role of a probiotics mixture in the treatment of childhood constipation: a pilot study

Posted 12 years ago by Soraya in General Health News

This study by Bekkali et al examined the effects of probiotics such as Bifidobacteria bifidum, Bifidobacteria infantis and Lactobacillus rhamnosus in children aged 4-16 years with constipation.  The study found an increase in frequency of bowel movements and a decrease in the number of faecal incontinence episodes in children given the probiotics, concluding beneficial effects on symptoms of constipation and a decrease of abdominal pain.
