Antibiotics & GI Health
Antibiotics can be detrimental to GI health by negatively influencing the growth of helpful microbiota, lowering biodiversity and disrupting the production of metabolic byproducts from phytonutrients, compromising intestinal barrier integrity (possibly leading to leaky gut), and favoring the growth of opportunistic pathogens. Antibiotic-related GI damage can be especially common in the elderly, as they are one of the most commonly prescribed medications for this age group.29 Additional prescription medications, such as proton pump inhibitors and antipsychotics result in lower diversity of the microbiome.25
