Damage Control After Antibiotics
I need to clear up a huge misconception about antibiotics, yogurt, and probiotics (beneficial bacteria).
Clients regularly complain about all kinds of stomach and yeast issues during and after taking antibiotics. And then they ask me: “If I eat a lot of yogurt, isn’t that good enough to put these good bacteria back into my system?”
The answer is “No!”. You definitely are not getting enough (or much at all) of the right strains. It can take YEARS to get your intestines back to 100% normal after taking antibiotics, and the sugar-filled pasteurized dairy yogurt often can make things worse.
The most effective way to fix the antibiotic damage is to supplement with a good probiotic like HLC Intensive both during antibiotic use and for at least 2 months after in order to recolonize the good probiotics in your body. If you’re trying to replenish with yogurt, you’d have to buy organic full fat yogurt with no sugar and consume a huge amount each day for 1 year and hope it works.
Still not sure if you need probiotics? If you have any ONE of these symptoms regularly, you need to take them:
Symptoms of Deficiency in Probiotics
- Bloating, Gas & Indigestion
- Yeast Infections
- Difficulty digesting dairy
At Rockwell Nutrition, we carry the very unique line of HLC Probiotics which are made with strains identical to those found in humans (as opposed to those with strains from cows). As such, they are readily recognized by our body, effectively implant, and improve your gut function dramatically! They contain no dairy, wheat, or gluten.
Over my 12 years studying in the nutrition industry, I rank HLC Probiotics in the Top 3 Most Important Supplements for your health.
What Are Probiotics and Do They Work?
Your body contains billions of good bacteria to keep things running smoothly in your intestines. They assist with digestion, help prevent food poisoning, prevent gas, diarrhea, constipation, and yeast overgrowth.
Some probiotics are only moderately effective, but others are true superstars. So, if you’re going to take a probiotic, you’ve got to take one that’s proven to work fantastically well!
Our Client reviews for these HLC Probiotics are overwhelmingly positive, especially in comparison to competitor’s brands. And Pharmax probiotics are the only kind I’ve used for myself and my family over the last 7 years.
Which HLC Probiotics Should I Take?
HLC Intensive Capsules are a great starting point if you’ve got something actively bothering your GI tract. It contains no FOS so it will not bother you if you have severe yeast issues or a very delicate GI system.
HLC High Potency Capsules are perfect as a daily maintenance product since they contain less bacteria per capsule and are less expensive.
For kids and adults who don’t like capsules, HLC High Potency Powder is the equivalent of the High Potency capsules. The powder tastes delicious and can be taken right off the spoon or mixed with any food or beverage (not hot).
For those of you with Gluten or Casein sensitivities or allergies, HLC Mindlinx is the perfect choice. It helps you better digest foods containing gluten or casein.
