What is Streptococcus Thermophilus (St-21)
Among 80 infants, 6-36 months old, with occasional diarrhea, given either a formula supplement with Bifidobacterium lactis and Streptococcus thermophilus or non-supplemented formula, those receiving the probiotic formula had fewer incidences of diarrhea. A second study of 80 breast-fed children, 6-24 months old, with occasional diarrhea for fewer than four days, found those given either a yogurt containing S. thermophilus and L. bulgaricus had shorter hospital stays, better weight gain and reduced loose stool frequency.
