New evidence  has reinforced the need for PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENTATION in those recently prescribed antibiotics, finding that even a single course of antibiotics can disrupt the microbiome for up to a year after administration.

Reduced diversity of gut microbiome predisposes us to a range of ailments ranging from depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, cardiovascular risk, poor digestion, auto immune disease, and autism to inflammatory diseases such as asthma and Crohn’s disease.

Eating plenty of Fibre is important for a healthy microbiome. Some of the microbes in your gut specialize in fermenting soluble fibre found in legumes, fruits, and vegetables, and the byproducts of this fermenting activity help feed the good bacteria.

Exercise, coupled with a higher protein diet also increases the diversity of gut microbiota.
