Supplements as a children's medicine

The most famous among dietary supplements are probiotics – preparations containing living microorganisms (primadophilus, Nature’s Way; floradofilyus, Vita Line; Euflorins, NPO Favor,) and prebiotics – products that stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines (probionics, lactulose). In addition, they are known vitamin complexes – products derived from yeast; preparations that improve the work of the intestine; substances that remove toxins from the body; products that have anti-inflammatory action and strengthen the immune system.

Supplements, which are called therapeutic nutrition, fall into a special section. First of all, it is about the starters Evita and Narine – with their help special fermented milk drinks are obtained.

Plus, there are many products containing probiotics (for example, Bifidok or a variety of yogurts).

Usually dietary supplements are produced in the form of powder – it is more convenient to mix them with food. But sometimes they are presented in liquid form, in the form of ordinary tablets, capsules and pills, which doctors prescribe to patients.

Everyone knows that very often dietary supplements containing probiotics, doctors prescribe for the treatment of dysbiosis. At the same time, other probiotics (Linex, LЕК; bificol, acipol, bifidumbacterin), whose activity usually does not exceed the above-mentioned products, are considered drugs. In part, this also applies to other dietary supplements, moreover, some of them are more active than officially recognized medications and successfully replace them in the treatment of various diseases.

What is the secret? Unlike drugs, dietary supplements are much easier to register, respectively, they are faster on the shelves.

Given the blurring of boundaries in the designation that there is a dietary supplement, and that – a medicine, many manufacturers of highly active substances register them as biologically active additives. By the way, that is why recently among doctors, pharmacologists and other specialists, the issue of recognition of pro-and prebiotics, as well as many other dietary supplements, has been actively discussed.

Only in this case will it be possible to better control their effectiveness and safety.

– Since many dietary supplements in their activity are not inferior to drugs and can cause side effects, it is better that they are prescribed by a doctor.

– If you decide to take dietary supplements without consulting a doctor, do it no longer than one month. Exception – health food.

– For greater effectiveness of dietary supplements is better to add them to food or take before meals.
