Sometimes it becomes necessary to take antibiotics despite your best efforts to heal your body naturally. Still, taking antibiotics can come with negative side affects such as constipation, candida, or yeast infections. One of the most common questions we get asked is “Can I take probiotics if I am on antibiotics?” The simple answer is YES. You can and should take probiotics while you are on any antibiotic regimen. This will help to restore your gut to its normal health and vitality while replenishing healthy flora.
Of course, antibiotics are so powerful that they kill off ALL bacteria in the body, including good bacteria, so it is important to take probiotics at least 2 hours away from antibiotics.
