FAQ: Can I take 2 probiotic supplements at the same time?
Yes! If you want to, and they will have a cumulative effect.
Diarrhoea can be defined as an increase in the frequency and amount of loose stools. It can be caused by a virus or bacteria - usually due to the ingestion of contaminated drinking water, undercooked meat and eggs or poor standards of hygiene.
If these situations occur, the body's reaction to the pathogens is twofold - it introduces large amounts of fluid into the large intestines, and makes the intestines more active by contracting frequently in order to flush out irritable micro-organisms, resulting in diarrhoea.
Drugs such as Loperamide work by preventing muscle contractions in order to stop diarrhoea, but these medicines do not remove the harmful bacteria from the body.
It is not recommended to give probiotics to severely immunosuppressed patients, post cardiac surgery patients, patients with pancreatitis, patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) or patients with blood in the stool unless under a doctor's care.
