Probiotic drink reduces infections in small children

A probiotic yoghurt drink can dramatically reduce the number of common sicknesses and infections in children

A probiotic yoghurt drink can dramatically reduce the number of common sicknesses and infections in children. The children who had the drink every day suffered fewer outbreaks of ear infections, flu, diarrhea and sinusitis. The drink, DanActive, was tested on a group of 638 healthy children, aged between three and six, who attended school every day. They either drank DanActive every day or a standard yoghurt drink that did not contain any probiotics. The DanActive children had 19 per cent fewer infections overall, including 24 per cent less gastro-intestinal problems, and 18 per cent fewer ear infections, sinusitis or strep. DanActive contains the probiotic strain L.casei DN-114 001. (Source: European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2010; May 19: doi: 10.1038/ejcn.2010.65).
