Antibiotics Confuse your Stomach

Antibiotics Confuse your Stomach
Antibiotics Confuse your Stomach - The role of a powerful antibiotic to kill germs is not always beneficial to mankind. Because in fact, taking antibiotics can disturb the balance of good microbes that live in the intestines causing health conditions become unpredictable.
Based on the research Les Dethlefsen and David Relman of Stanford University, California, U.S., on patients who were given ciprofloxacin revealed that antibiotics consumed by pressing all the population of beneficial bacteria. At least every patient needs months to recover.

Research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences supports a policy which says that antibiotics can destroy the good bacteria that live in the body. The study also supports the importance of the development of probiotic products, including yogurt containing live bacteria.

In research for about 10 months, the experts involved three female volunteers by giving antibiotic tablets. Drug administration was performed in two phases with each phase lasts for five days. Then, the researchers conducted DNA testing on stool samples from the volunteers to determine the type of microbes that live in the intestines.

"As a result, the effect of ciprofloxacin on the intestinal microbiota really fast. For a week after the administration of antibiotics, they returned to the initial conditions, but not entirely complete," said Dethlefsen.

Results of other studies also support the idea that humans and animals have a symbiotic relationship with bacteria. Microbes in the gut to help digest food and good germs can make the distance so that the bad germs away. "Distal human gut is one of the most complex ecosystems on the planet," said Dethlefsen.

Deadly microbes can lead to obesity and the possibility of allergies. Other research also found that Lactobacillus reuteri is found in breast milk could protect against rotavirus infection.

Several recent studies have also found that certain bacteria cause inflammation that can affect appetite and intestinal inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn's disease and colitis.

According to Dethlefsen, killing bacteria in the body of the population regularly can help encourage the spread of superbugs that are resistant to drugs.

"One of the potential ramifications that could change the human being is to add genes resistant to antibiotics. Every use of antibiotics as well as roll the dice because of the potential evil that led to strain to replace the good bacteria," he said.
