  • As far as I know, it's fine. My midwife suggested it when I has issues with constipation early on.

  • why wouldn't it be. it's just yogurt with a lot of fiber and you're supposed to eat more fiber while pregnant cause you're prone to constipation

  • I ate it whenever I was irregular. And guess what, it regulated my digestive system. So, yeah, totally try it.

  • Activia is a probiotic yogurt that recently has been heavily advertised in the U.S., and sales of have soared well past the $100 million mark. It has been sold overseas since 1987. Groupe Danone (Dannon), the company manufacturing Activia, cites “Bifidus regularis” as key to its success. But if you look up “Bifidus regularis” in your Bergey’s Manual of Bacteriology, you will come up empty as it is actually the trademarked name of Bifidobacterium animalis strain DN 173 010, registered by Groupe Danone and used in Activia. The US commercials for Activia tout its effectiveness for people who are “bloated and irregular.” However, posts on message boards about Activia indicate that people who do not have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or constipation may not benefit from Activia.

    And that's the only difference. So yes, it's completely safe.

  • If you are ever not sure ask your doctor.

  • Why don't you eat real yogurt? Real yogurt has live cultures and does not have gelatin, artificial colors, artificial flavors.

    I buy plain, greek style yogury, and sweeten with pureed fruits and maple syrup.
