PRODUCT : Adjunct to Antibiotics
Antibiotics are essential at times, but they also wreak havoc in the gut. Antibiotic side effects can include nausea, diarrhea and lower gut diversity. A disrupted gut is linked to obesity, diabetes, anxiety, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases, autism, allergies, autoimmune diseases and antibiotic resistance. Therefore, Postbiotics+ works on how to protect and restore a diverse microbiota.
Primary Outcome: To increase the rate of recovery after antibiotics and lessen risk of chronic disease and infections. Our product (T) prevents damage to microbiota diversity after antibiotic courses (left panel, S1, S2: final day of antibiotic treatment and first day after), and restores a healthy microbiome more quickly (S3-5: 2, 3 and 10 days after antibiotics) and better than the leading probiotic alone (C). Our product also establishes a community of healthy bacteria (right panel) and reduce those that could be pathogenic.
