Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) is a common complication of antibiotic treatment, most likely because beneficial bacterial microbes in the gut are outnumbered: for example, a factor of 100 pathogenic cells to 10 protective cells.

Two recent systematic reviews have shown favorable support for using probiotics in the prevention and treatment of antibiotic-associated diarrhea (Hempel et al., 2012; McFarland, 2010).
"There have been some studies that suggest that eating the yogurt DanActive (a probiotic product) when taking antibiotics did reduce the incidence of antibiotic-associated diarrhea."
Executives say the product, which is designed to manage antibiotic-associated diarrhea, is safe for children as young as two months old.
The organism produces two exotoxins: toxin A (primarily an enterotoxin) and toxin B (a cell cytotoxin); it is believed to be responsible for 15%-25% of antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Although pseudomembranous colitis has been the hallmark of infection, the clinical presentation of C.

These scientific studies strengthen the positive influence of probiotics in maintaining and improving health and quality of life including preventive and therapeutic application possibilities on infectious or antibiotic-associated diarrhea, influence on the intestinal flora, and the reduction of pathogenic mircoorganisms, metabolites, and enzymes as well as immunostimulating properties and the reduction of allergenic and atopic complaints.
"They work by balancing the yeast levels in your gut, and they fight the bad bacteria, meaning less bloating and gas, and more regular digestion." These good bacteria have also been proven to shorten the course of infectious diarrhea in children, lessen antibiotic-associated diarrhea, and may help "maintain remission of ulcerative colitis and prevent a relapse of Crohn's disease," according to the Harvard Women's Health Watch newsletter.
