Our gut flora is home to many different species of bacteria, which can be both beneficial and harmful to our health. The key is to maintain a balance of good bacteria, so that our beneficial microbes can carry out their duty of repelling pathogens, viruses, and damage-causing microbes. When this balance is upset, the good bacteria can become outnumbered, and are unable to fulfill their job of fighting bad bacteria. This can lead to symptoms of digestive upset, inflammation, and infection.
Although antibiotics are sometimes required to fight off harmful and advanced infections, they can also wipe out the good bacteria in your gut. This often results in digestive upset, yeast overgrowth, and inflammation. Supplementing with probiotics during and after antibiotic use can help bolster that good bacteria, restoring balance to your gut microbiome.
