Studies are supporting the theory that antibiotics may progressively alter the composition and function of the gut micro-biome (gut bacteria). With approx. 80% of your immune system living in your gastrointestinal tract its important to support your micro-biome.
Antibiotics should be used when necessary, but please use probiotics in conjunction.
If you child is over two years – I like BioCeutical’s SB Floractive for your toddler while on the antibiotics and a week post. Please check with your chemist to ensure its the appropriate probiotic strain alongside the antibiotic your child is taking.
SB Floractive – comes in a capsule, start with 1/2 capsule daily and increase to 1 capsule per day over the course of a couple of days. Can mix with water / milk / yogurt and be taken the same time as the antibiotics.
If you need help with which strain of probiotic or addressing your child’s gut bacteria, please call me to organise a personal consultation.
