Antibiotic Use

Antibiotic use may result in negative digestive health side effects like antibiotic associated diarrhea. This happens when antibiotics kill off the beneficial bacteria like probiotics when they are targeting other microbes. Overall, you need a healthy balance of bacteria in your microbiome and antibiotics can inadvertently kill off the good guys as well as the bad guys. The undesirable bacteria are extremely opportunistic and when the beneficial bacteria are wiped out, the bad guys flourish.
