A systemic review concluded that dietary intake of probiotics is beneficial in terms of weight and height gain among under-nourished children. The study demonstrated that Lactobacilli possess antimicrobial activities against periodontal pathogens. The children consuming milk containing this probiotic, particularly 3-4 years of age, had significantly fewer dental caries and lower salivary counts of streptococcus mutans.
In a published systemic review and meta-analysis, it was proved that a probiotic administration was beneficial for the prevention of acute respiratory tract infections. The probiotics containing Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum given twice a day for 3 months was able to reduce the symptoms of the common cold.
The studies in constipated children showed that the probiotics had significantly improved stool frequency and consistency which could be due to change in the intestinal flora.
The meta-analysis suggested that Lactobacillus is safe and effective as a treatment for children with acute infectious diarrhoea, antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and functional abdominal pain.
