How to cure diarrhea with vitamins and other supplements


There are a number of supplements (vitamins and minerals) that can help curb the tendency of suffering from diarrhea. Among these we can mention:

- Vitamin E: The intake of 400 IU per day helps to regulate bowel function.

- Acidophilus: The intake of acidophilus favors the creation of an appropriate intestinal flora to control pathogenic microorganisms. The usual dose is 6 pills a day in three divided doses . Such supplementation is particularly interesting when diarrhea is caused by ingestion of antibiotics.

- Supplements of garlic: the ingestion of capsules of dehydrated garlic helps to eliminate many pathogenic bacteria that can cause diarrhea.
