Is Activia a laxative or will it have a laxative-type effect?
No. A laxative is a medication formulated to treat constipation. Activia is not a medication—it is a yogurt with a natural culture called Bifidus Regularis® (Bifidobacterium lactis DN-173 010) and that helps naturally regulate your digestive system.**Consume daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. It does not cure or prevent constipation, which is a medical condition.
Activia is a food and not a treatment or cure for any medical disorder or disease. If you have any concerns related to your health or diet, you should consult a healthcare professional.
