Question About Probiotics

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hmmm...I wonder how well I can explain this.

Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that we all have in our intestines. These "good guys" are essential and keep us healthy. They play a big role in how healthy our digestive system is. If the "good guys" are wiped out by anything...(usually antibiotics do a good job of killing our good guys) then the "not so good guys" can take over. Yeast overgrowth or bacterial infections can occur if the balance is out of whack. If the "baddies" take over then the state of the intestnes and the intestinal wall can become compromised. You can rebuild your "army" of good guys by taking probiotic supplements.

Rachel:

As simple as you stated that, I still don't understand. You don't need to reply it, it will ingest it, tomorrow yes. :)

But, this is what I don't understand, that during a flare up in small intestine inflamation, why would and antibiotic dose be appropriate? There are abvious "coodies" there, and why would not the antibiotics work against the gluten attack?

In other words, why wouldn't the antibiotics fight the gluten attack in the sm. intestines and clear up the issue, at least for the time being

I opt for spell chek for this forum? That would be a good thing.

I don't know if I understood your question. :huh:

Antibiotics work to kill off bacteria. Unfortunately antibiotics cant tell the difference between good bacteria and bad bacteria. They will wipe out all the bacteria even the stuff that BELONGS there and has a purpose in keeping us healthy. If we kill off all our good bacteria (probiotics) there is nothing there to protect us from the "coodies". We NEED those probiotics to stay intact...which is why whenever you take antibiotics you should also take probiotics to replace whats being killed off. Probiotics keep us safe from the "coodies" among other things.

Sheesh...I dont think I answered your question and probably just made things more confusing. :huh:

I use probiotics to replace the "good bacteria" when I am getting sick or on an antibiotic. They do make a difference... That bacteria is also in active yogurt too...

And antibiotics can't work against a gluten attack - it is antibodies from your own immune system that are hurting you.

Having bacterial overgrowth in your small intestine can happen over time with celiac (and in other people) when you have too much acid or inflammation and there are not enough probiotics there to keep the bad stuff in check. So basically bad bacteria can simply make matters worse for celiac but it is not the cause. We take probiotics to try and keep things in check and prevent further damage, allowing us to heal.
