A healthy gut has a diverse community of microbes. Of these microbes, the most important are the good bacteria which aid in preventing bad bacteria, viruses, parasites, etc., from entering the rest of your body. A leaky gut happens when there’s an imbalance between the beneficial bacteria and the bad stuff (cue heartburn, etc.).
Maintaining proper gut flora is a crucial but still largely misunderstood component of human health. While antibiotics have lengthened our lifespan, our excessive use of these drugs may cause serious long-term consequences. The good news is you can start to rebuild your gut flora even while you are taking antibiotics.
