Is there a need for probiotics after antibiotics?

Why are probiotics needed after antibiotics? Antibiotics are usually prescribed quickly and also usually help to combat the problem to be treated, for example an inflammation, quite quickly. However, antibiotics not only destroy pathogenic bacteria, but also some of the beneficial bacteria, for example the " good" bacteria of the intestinal flora.

How can you rebuild the intestinal flora with probiotics after antibiotics?

Rebuilding the intestinal flora with probiotics after antibiotics is recommended, because the destroyed "good" bacteria are important for an intact and powerful immune system and for a healthy intestine. So it is not surprising that a disturbance of the intestinal flora can lead to various health complaints.

A disturbed intestinal flora due to antibiotics (or other influences) can possibly promote the development of various intestinal problems, allergies, autoimmune diseases as well as food intolerances.
Fungal infections or other infections often occur in the period (days or even weeks) after antibiotic therapy. The disturbed intestinal flora leads to a weakened immune system, which repeatedly leads to new infections, which in turn lead to new antibiotic prescriptions.
A severely depleted number of intestinal bacteria, especially the "good" bacteria, and the resulting bacterial imbalance is called dysbiosis.

In any case, it makes sense to carefully consider with your doctor whether antibiotic treatment is unavoidable. There may be a treatment that does not lead to a disturbance of the intestinal flora, but which strengthens the body and promotes the healing process.
In cases where there is no alternative, the antibiotic treatment should be accompanied by appropriate measures (at the latest after completion of the treatment).

Intestinal rehabilitation with probiotics after antibiotics!

In order to rebuild the intestinal flora after antibiotic treatment or to help it to find its natural balance again, intestinal rehabilitation with probiotics after antibiotics makes sense. Probiotics contain living intestinal bacteria. If the intestinal flora has been damaged by antibiotic treatment, the ingested strains of bacteria from probiotics settle particularly quickly and help to build up a healthy intestinal flora.

Probiotics can also be used while taking antibiotics. The probiotic should be taken as far apart from the antibiotic as possible (e.g. one in the morning, the other in the evening) and shortly before meals.
You can also do a lot for an intact intestinal flora in your diet. Sweets, cakes, pasta and white bread, sweet drinks, for example, promote the settlement of fungi, because fungi prefer to feed on sugar. Sugar and white flour products should therefore be avoided during and after taking antibiotics. In order to promote the development of the intestinal flora, a predominantly plant-based diet that is low in salt and fat and contains plenty of probiotic foods (e.g. sauerkraut, yoghurt) and is rich in fibre (fibre nourishes the intestinal bacteria), is suitable.

Which probiotics are useful after antibiotics?

When talking about probiotics after antibiotics, two types of bacteria are particularly in focus: lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.

• Lactobacilli
like bifidobacteria, belong to the lactic acid bacteria. They are mainly responsible for the production of lactic acid. Lactic acid contributes to a healthy intestinal environment and protects the intestine from harmful bacteria.

• Bifidobacteria
can protect us from disease-causing germs by producing lactic acid. They are also responsible for the production of essential enzymes and vitamins and are therefore particularly important for our health.

To ensure that the intestine is also supplied with good bacteria in the long term and that the intestinal flora remains in balance, you should regularly consume probiotic foods. In the case of mild intestinal disorders such as diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics or irritable bowel syndrome, the good bacteria can reduce or prevent inflammation. These naturally sustain many microorganisms. Foods with living probiotic microorganisms can also help to build up the intestinal flora and keep it in balance.

Frusano's Fructo Biotic Daily Shot provides support in this regard! This probiotic drink is enriched with various lactic acid bacteria, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan and completely natural in organic quality.
