Our gastrointestinal tract harbors a highly diverse microbial population termed the microbiome, which plays a major role in nutrition, metabolism, protection against pathogens, and development of the immune system. It is estimated that at least 1000 different bacterial species cohabit the human intestinal tract.


Ingested bacteria must survive the low pH of the stomach, bile acids, and a myriad of digestive enzymes before finding a place to adhere along the mucosal lining. While this is a legitimate concern, this can usually be overcome easily by increasing the number of viable bacteria ingested.


Antibiotics can be a life saver when fighting off a serious infection. The downside is, antibiotics can disrupt your intestinal biome. Therefore, I always recommend a post antibiotic treatment of a high dose probiotic. In all my years in practice, I have never seen any probiotic on the market that is as comprehensive as the new ProbioMax 350 DF by Xymogen. It provides 350 billion, 18 different strains belonging to 13 different species of three different genera. WOW! If you have to be on an antibiotic always, protect and restore your intestinal terrain. I recommend ProbioMax 350 DF.
