Probiotics after Antibiotics and Its effect on Muscle Gains

Image result for probioticsCommon Question:

If I eat yogurt do I still need to take a probiotic supplement?

  • Yes, yogurt usually contains 1 billion active cells, and with only a few strains. 
  • Probiotic capsules can have 30-150 billion and many different strains.
  • If you can digest dairy easily and don’t find it to be inflammatory, incorporating yogurt with probiotics can be a good addition.
  • If you choose to add in yogurt, using kefir because it has 3x the amount of probiotics in regular yogurt. (see chart bellow)
  • For people who have a hard time with yogurt, try adding in kimchi to your diet. It’s also a similar source of probiotics and is great in a stir fry. 
  • Eating yogurt, kimchi or fermented foods can still be done while you’re on probiotics. Its important to keep them at least 4hrs away from when you take the antibiotic. (this can be further discussed with your doctor based on your medication and dosage)
