Meet Gut Recovery: The Best Probiotic for Antibiotics

We’re not one for “formal announcements” and “launch parties,” but we’ve got some big news to share. 

Today marks the birth of Gut Recovery, a multi-strain probiotic designed to get your whole family (yep - it’s for adults and kids) back in balance after a course of antibiotics.  

Fact is, antibiotics are a necessary evil. When you’re battling a brutal cough, or your toddler has a skyrocketing fever, antibiotics can be life savers. However, as a group of people laser-focused on gut health, it’s our job to let you know antibiotics are also detrimental to your microbiome.

We created Gut Recovery (the best probiotic to take after antibiotics) to combat the harm caused by antibiotics – so your gut stays balanced while you get back on your feet. Let’s dive in.

How do antibiotics affect gut health? 

By definition, antibiotics work by killing or preventing bad bacteria from reproducing and spreading. But in order to do so, they have to be so strong that they inevitably wipe out some of the good bacteria along the way. And you know the deal about gut health and good bacteria by now:

And making sure it’s filled with good bacteria is important for

When antibiotics throw your gut health out of whack, you’re probably going to notice a difference in how your body is running.

What are side effects of antibiotics?

Side effects from antibiotics are common – so common that 1 in 5 people are affected. When antibiotics wipe out good bacteria, which can cause side effects like:

  • Diarrhea 
  • Yeast infections
  • Vomiting
  • Gas
  • Nausea
  • Constipation

Even worse, a course of antibiotics can allow harmful bacteria (like E.coli, Salmonella and C.diff) to take root, causing significant disruptions in your microbiome. 

Being rid of infection is great but at what cost?  

Can’t I just take a regular probiotic? 

No. Not all probiotic strains survive an antibiotic attack. Antibiotics are powerful, remember? Chances are, if you take your daily probiotic while you’re on antibiotics, your strains aren’t even making it to your gut alive. 

Why is Gut Recovery different? 

A high quality probiotic, formulated with antibiotic-resistant strains, can replenish good bacteria to promote microbial balance during a course of antibiotics. This is key to maintaining a healthy gut and combating uncomfortable antibiotic side effects.

Gut Recovery is formulated with a potent combination of spore-forming, yeast-based and live probiotics that can survive antibiotics. 

Spore forming probiotics

Yeast forming probiotics 

  • S. boulardii or Saccharomyces Boulardii DBVPG 6763
    • In several studies, researchers found that S. boulardii prevented antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) when they administered it with antibiotics.

Non-Spore Forming Probiotics: 

  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG: This strain is well researched to show the effectiveness battling antibiotic side-effects like nausea and diarrhea.

Gut Recovery is the first of its kind – and it was made for the whole family. 

All it takes is 1 stickpack for kids and 2 for adults. We know that a cold can come out of nowhere and completely knock you off your feet. That’s why we made sure that Gut Recovery can be stored in your cabinet (right next to pain relievers and allergy meds) for up to a year, ready and waiting for when you need it.

Antibiotics get you back on your feet after an infection, Gut Recovery gets you back in balance.
