Sometimes people forget that antibiotics don’t discriminate – sure, they kill off nasty bacteria, but they also kill off your friendly bacteria! This loss of helpful bacteria can result in digestive problems like diarrhoea, as well as yeast overgrowths that can cause thrush.
Optibac Probiotics For Those on Antibiotics can be taken throughout your course of antibiotics to maintain your healthy gut bacteria. Each capsule contains 4 billion live cultures that have been clinically trialled alongside antibiotics and shown to make it to the gut alive. Unlike most probiotics, you don’t need to wait an hour or two after taking your antibiotics – you can take these at the same time and they will still survive!
