So can You Take Probiotics while taking Anti-Biotics? The Answer is Yes! This would have to be one of the biggest myths around. It doesn't make sense to wait until you finish the antibiotic medicine while your good beneficial bacteria are being decimated!
We used to believe that taking a probiotic would result in the death of the good bacteria we are adding in. Researchers have given this the big thumbs up to adding additional probiotic bacteria during treatment, going as far assaying that it will actually reduce the side effects of the Anti-Biotics, such as diarrhoea and harmful effects on the gut bacteria.
You're not wasting your money, researchers now suggest that we should take a probiotic during anti-biotic treatment.
Probiotic Bacteria are necessary to maintain great health. Bacteria aid our Metabolism, help reduce pathogen colonization, aid gut health, make vitamins like B12 and aid the immune system as well as many other health benefits.
It's probably one of those important health habits that you can do for life... "Add Beneficial Bacteria to Your Diet" every single day!
What Can You Do to Help Re-balance Your Gut?
One of the fastest way to help re-balance your gut starts with the diet. For centuries fermented foods have played a critical role as a staple food in many cultures. Well before we knew about the benefits of fermented foods, consumption dates back as far as 6000 B.C. It was used as a way of preserving food long before fridges and modern preservatives.
We now know that Fermented Foods contain all natural bacteria that help to support normal digestive function. Ironically our ancestors consumed probiotic foods daily. Now we are lucky if we eat any at all in our diets.
