Alarming fact about antibiotics.
The discovery of antibiotics significantly improved the world, but the overuse of them now has consequences beyond resistance. Antibiotics also destroy good bacteria, an abundance of which lives in our body and plays a large role in our digestion.
Studies have shown that antibiotics can alter your natural gut microbes leading to less flora that are able to eliminate fat and causing weight gain. Antibiotic use in children has been linked to childhood overweight and obesity. So next time you feel ill, make sure you need those antibiotics, and take some probiotics to balance it out!
