Probiotics Can Stop Colicky Babies from Crying

Colicky babies have eluded parents and healthcare professionals for ages but the results of a recent study show promising results for finding the cause and cure of colics.. Learn more at eVitamins, the largest online health UK superstore.

Colics are some of the most poorly understood conditions that can affect a baby and they're also among the most common. Theories regarding the causes of colics have ranged from the absurd to the logical and none have ever been proven through scholarly research.  One theory that's gaining popularity in the scientific community, however, connects colicky babies with allergies to hormones in the mother's breast milk.

The theory behind the colics is that colicky babies are suffering from inflammation in the gut, and that the inflammation is caused by an imbalance of microflora in the belly.

One study, completed in 2007 and involving 83 babies over a 28 day period, tested this theory. The babies were divided into two groups and each group was given either a pharmaceutical that reduces gas or a probiotic supplement with L. reuteri. The results were overwhelming.

The babies that received the probiotic cried for an average of 51 minutes per day and the babies that received the pharmaceutical cried for an average of two and a half hours per day.

So next time you have a colicky baby, give probiotics a try!
