Not only because making such abdominal discomfort receive waste in the colon, digestive problems can also cause complications such as ulcers, hemorrhoids and even colon cancer.

Good yogurt containing live bacteria. These bacteria will work to overcome the problem of constipation. Long live good bacteria is not more than three months. So if you see outdated yogurt with a period of more than three months, the good bacteria in it are not working optimally, or not the live bacteria is needed to overcome digestive problems.

2. Not UHT products
