What should you take after a course of antibiotics?Updated 5 months ago

After completing a course of antibiotics, it is important to support your gut and restore the balance of beneficial bacteria that may have been disrupted. Here are some key recommendations for post-antibiotic supplementation:

  • Butyrate: Consider incorporating a butyrate supplement, such as BodyBio Butyrate or Gut+, into your routine. Butyrate provides nourishment for the cells lining the gut and supports your gut.

  • Probiotics - Spore-based: Include a spore-based probiotic in your regimen. These probiotics contain resilient spores that can withstand the effects of antibiotics and help replenish beneficial bacteria in the gut. Examples include Bacillus coagulans or Bacillus subtilis strains.

  • Saccharomyces boulardii: Adding a Saccharomyces boulardii supplement, like Florastor, can be beneficial. S. boulardii is a yeast probiotic that helps restore the natural balance of microorganisms in the gut and supports digestive wellness.

When considering any supplementation, it is always advisable to consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist. They can guide you on the appropriate dosage, duration, and specific products that best suit your individual needs. Additionally, they can help ensure there are no contraindications or interactions with any medications or medical conditions you may have.
