There are many different types of antibiotics. Some are broad-spectrum, meaning that they act on a wide range of disease-causing bacteria. Others are designed to kill certain species of bacteria. Understanding why to take probiotics alongside antibiotics is the first step to ensure you protect your gut-friendly bacteria.
As probiotics can help to stimulate immunity, produce antimicrobial substances, compete for nutrients with pathogens and inhibit harmful bacteria from attaching to the gut lining, they are helpful both during and after antibiotic therapy.
