now, many parents in the baby diarrhea, constipation, food plot, allergies, when he would eat some of probiotics to replenish beneficial bacteria in the gut, thus promoting better and faster disease remission. some parents even under all normal baby, and give him the routine use of probiotics in the gut expect to enhance your baby's resistance. if you go to infants and pregnant store, some of the sales staff also suggested that parents give the baby long-term use of probiotics that can improve the baby's immune system, so that the baby less illness.

in the eyes of many parents, probiotics seems to cure physical disease panacea. in response, some pediatricians on the microblogging reminded of probiotics can not let the children health care as long-term use, otherwise, may affect the child's own generation probiotic function.

plenty of probiotics, contribute to human health

human gut microbes is a dense ecosystems, probiotic (a type capable of colonization in the intestine, maintain gut flora balance and stimulate the intestinal mucosal immune tissues, have a major impact on the intestinal mucosal immune beneficial microflora), bacteria (such as salmonella, staphylococcus, etc.), opportunistic pathogens (such as e. coli, enterococci amount not but more long-standing gut, usually harmless, but if children suffering from severe malnutrition or flora imbalance may cause illness, or even the development of difficult to control infectious diseases) co-exist. professor of pediatrics, qilu hospital of shandong university wang yuwei noted that when there are enough probiotics in the intestines, it can restrict pathogens and opportunistic pathogens, maintain intestinal flora balance, people in a healthy state. once when out of balance flora in the body, such as the ratio between the bacteria change significantly or exceed the normal values, then diarrhea, allergies, loss of appetite, fatigue, low immunity will follow a series of conditions, human health will be red.

healthy child, self-production of probiotics

fortunately, the human body is a large plant can produce probiotics themselves. beijing university of chinese medicine affiliated hospital of zhang silai former director of pediatrics, said the development of normal children, there is no need to add extra probiotics, because eating the food through the digestive decomposition and fermentation can produce a lot probiotic group, which is inherent in the human gut physiological functions. the average person is not a lot of demand for probiotics, under normal circumstances, the body can also adjust the balance of the body's own flora. in contrast, long-term abuse of probiotics may pose a potential human health hazard. medical studies have shown that the human body is not necessary to use a synthetic long probiotic products, will lead to the gradual loss of their own intestinal bacteria breeding ability, over time, will produce human intestinal dependence, called "probiotics addiction medicine . " once the risk of the human body, "probiotics addiction" may life will rely on and use of synthetic oral probiotic products to maintain a healthy state of life.

microblogging named "pui children house pediatrician" pediatrician pointed out that, under normal circumstances, a variety of intestinal flora will be interdependent, mutual constraints, to maintain a balance, to maintain a certain amount and proportion, and casual supplement probiotics (including probiotics) it is easy to break the body of this micro-ecological balance, when balance is destroyed, the lower the resistance when the baby is prone to digestive and other health problems. so, do not recommend supplements of probiotics in infants randomly.

zhang silai noted that children want to stimulate the body to produce more of probiotics, the best way is breastfeeding. breastfeeding is a bacteria feeding process, because breast milk ducts containing probiotics normal group, normal flora can be passed to the child through breastfeeding, the child as soon as possible to establish normal intestinal flora.

in addition, pay attention to your children to eat some foods rich in dietary fiber, such as bran contains more of wheat flour, whole grains, potatoes, beans, vegetables and vegetable shoots, fruit, konjac, seaweed and other plant food, contribute to the breeding and development of probiotics, adjust the intestinal flora balance. not too much intake of animal foods, because of excessive consumption of high-protein foods can promote the growth of intestinal bacteria of corruption, produce some harmful substances.

in both cases, it is recommended to add probiotics

so, when it's appropriate to add probiotics do? zhang silai introduced probiotic mainly for the following two situations:

long-term use of antibiotics antibiotics will not only kill bacteria, but also kill co-exist with probiotics, therefore, children need to add probiotics to re-establish in vivo micro-ecological barrier.

diarrhea diarrhea can cause loss of a large number of probiotics within the intestinal tract of children, lose restrict pathogens or opportunistic pathogens may take the opportunity to cause disease, resulting in intestinal flora imbalance. replenish probiotics, can re-establish the balance of intestinal flora, to maintain intestinal health.

need to be reminded that even in either case, you must also add probiotics under the guidance of doctors, but not recommended for long-term supplement.
