- Our gut bacteria (microbiome) is fundamental to our health. It has a wide range of functions in our body and maintaining a balance of ‘good’ to ‘bad’ bacteria is key to supporting our microbiota.
- Contains extensively-researched Lab4 friendly bacteria. Supported by a unique body of UK-based clinical research, the Lab4 live bacteria in ProVen Adult 50 Billion is the most comprehensively studied group of friendly bacteria in the UK.
Antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria that cause disease, but, in many cases, they do not distinguish between good and bad bacteria – they destroy all bacteria indiscriminately. As a result, taking antibiotics can very quickly lead to an imbalance in the gut microbiota and balance may not be restored once the course of antibiotics is complete.
This gives the bad bacteria an opportunity to multiply and grow and may cause side effects such as antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and subsequently lead to permanent changes in the structure and composition of our microbiota.
Taking friendly bacteria such as acidophilus and bifidus alongside and following antibiotics may help to maintain a balanced microbiota.
Dose: Adults aged 16+ 1 capsule per day should be taken both alongside and following a course of antibiotics, allowing at least two hours between taking the antibiotics and taking the probiotic capsule.
