Fatty Liver in Children

Fatty liver is a condition that used to show up in adults over 40 years of age. However, with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles as a society and our consumption of high-fructose corn syrup and other useless and damaging refined carbohydrates and non-foods, Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is now being diagnosed in children who are also obese.

This condition interferes with many enzymatic and metabolic processes which can lead to the earlier onset of chronic degenerative diseases, like type-two diabetes, and pre-mature aging.

What’s the good news? Certain probiotic supplements which include Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterum lactis, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus have shown promise in reversing the condition.

Decreasing the consumption of refined carbohydrates, increasing activity, adding fermented foods such as raw sauerkraut, and supplementing with these specific probiotics may reduce your child’s risk of this harmful condition.
