When you’re on any antibiotic, it’s always good to take a probiotic alongside. Antibiotics do what they’re supposed-knock those bad bacteria suckers off their feet. But they also tend to kill the innocent good bacteria that protect our bodies.
What are probiotics? Probiotics are live micro-organisms that are similar to the ones found in the human gut. They help prevent certain illnesses and support general wellness. According to medical sources, friendly bacteria are vital to proper development of the immune system, to protection against microorganisms that could cause disease, and to the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients.
The unfriendly micro-organisms or bacteria are the ones that aid in infectious diarrhea, yeasts, fungi and other infections.. :-! Actually, my hairdresser always tells me, take a probiotic and your dandruff will go away. I mean, thats a good thing.
In order to select a good probiotic, the most important thing to make sure is that it is “enteric-coated.” These kind of tablets are coated with a special protective layer to ensure the microbes will survive en route through the stomach and will get to the lower part of the intestine. This is where levels of existing bacteria, good and bad, are at their highest.
