Probiotics can also be helpful to help support a person's gut health and relieve gut issues.
The gut's lining can occasionally become damaged, which can lead to intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut.” This will allow molecules to have through to the bloodstream and cause inflammation or immune reactions.
Antibiotics can kill both bad and good bacteria. Sometimes, this could create a person to see symptoms of diarrhoea when taking them. Taking probiotics at the same time frame, however, will help repopulate a person's gut with beneficial bacteria and ease any outward indications of diarrhoea.
Specifically, the probiotic yeast Saccharomyces boulardiihas been effective in the prevention and treatment of diarrhoea occurring when taking antibiotics or the next infection. The yeast may also be effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, but more research is required to confirm this.
