A course of antibiotics can throw off the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut, but taking a daily probiotic during and after antibiotic use may help to keep your gut in check.
Can your gut bounce back after antibiotics?
While antibiotics have changed the face of modern medicine and saved countless lives, this advancement has come at a cost: the health of our gut microbiome.
Unfortunately, antibiotics aren’t selective in the bacteria they destroy. They are broad-spectrum antibacterial agents, which are unable to differentiate between the pathogenic bacteria that cause us harm, and the beneficial bacteria that keep us healthy.
As a result, even just a single course of antibiotics can significantly reduce the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can have long-lasting negative effects on our health.
Numerous studies demonstrate that antibiotic exposure can lead to a state of microbial imbalance known as intestinal dysbiosis, which is a reduced number and diversity of bacteria in the gut.
Fortunately, we now know that taking a daily probiotic during and after antibiotic use may help to keep the community of bacteria in your gut fighting fit. Biome Advanced™ Probiotic was specifically formulated with six strains of probiotic bacteria to support the health of the gut microbiome during and after a course of antibiotics, keeping your digestion healthy and your bowel habits regular.
Next time you’re prescribed a course of antibiotics, ask your pharmacist about how Biome Advanced™ Probiotic can help you to support your gut microbiome to keep your gut happy and healthy.
