Probiotic for those taking antibiotics 

For people who are taking antibiotics (e.g. amoxicillin, penicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline), or who have recently finished an antibiotic course, the probiotics in this supplement are especially selected to maintain a good balance of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract during and after your course of antibiotics.

Probiotics and antibiotics: Antibiotics do not distinguish between friendly and harmful bacteria and therefore kill off many probiotics in the gut, leading to side effects such as thrush, diarrhoea, or poor immunity.   OptiBac Probiotics For those on antibiotics promotes a healthy balance of good bacteria, thereby supporting health, digestion and immunity for patients taking antibiotics.

How does For those on antibiotics work?

Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 is a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this specific probiotic strain has been well studied to survive gastric acidity and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus Rosell-52 is tested to ensure adherence to the cell wall lining of the intestines; where it inhibits intestinal pathogens and supports immune cells.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 is a natural component of the friendly bacteria in the intestines; this species is one of the most studied in the probiotic world. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 - therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged. The probiotic strain L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 is able to bind strongly to the intestinal cells and helps maintain a good digeston and a strong immune system.
