Question

I tried probiotics for two weeks and now I've got the trots - what's happening?!

Answer

It might be the phenylanaline contained in the drink, which can loosen the bowels. Another explanation is that you might be taking a little bit too much. Your body can take a while to adapt as the bacteria in the drink take up residence in the intestine, but these effects shouldn't last long.
