Title: Are human strain probiotics Halal?


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuhu


Are human strain probiotics Halal?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If the probiotics contain ingredients of an impermissible nature such as human byproducts, then it will not be permissible to consume.[1][2][3]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
