The Rise of antibiotics

Posted on07 Jul 2019
Antibiotic resistance leads to higher medical costs, prolonged hospital stays, and increased mortality. Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases.

A growing list of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, blood poisoning, gonorrhoea, and foodborne diseases – are becoming harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat as antibiotics become less effective. - source: WHO Antibiotic resistance is accelerated by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics. Probiotics’ purpose is to introduce good bacteria into the gut.

They are live organisms that help treat and even prevent some illnesses. Probiotics directly affect the health of our digestive systems and immune health. If antibiotics are killing bacteria in our bodies and gut, probiotics are supplementing the good bacteria back into our bodies. It’s important to your overall health to keep as much “good” bacteria in your gut as possible.

Increasing the amount of probiotics you are taking while taking antibiotics can be a good thing. The health of our gut directly correlates to the health of our body. Additionally, antibiotics have been known to cause severe gastrointestinal distress and diarrhea. Putting good bacteria in to replace the good bacteria that were attacked is important. Another benefit of probiotics is helping to prevent and treat yeast infections, which many develop while taking antibiotics since the good bacteria is attacked.

Both lactomin and Lactokids are specially formulated to replenish your gut with good bacteria, helps in restoring the digestive system and prevents antibiotic associated diarrohea. The combination of selected multi-strains are highly unique and beneficial to those on antibiotics.
