Antibiotics and Interactions with Dietary Supplements

There is a broad range of antibiotics on the market and they are used mainly for infections cause by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoas.  Although; many antibiotics can be effective, they can also have side effects and interact with your much needed vitamins and minerals.

Vitamin and Supplement Interaction
  • Lactobacillus- Many antibiotics can disturb the good/ friendly bacteria of the colon, resulting in diarrhea. Diarrhea can cause dehydration and reduce proper absorption of most, if not all nutrients.
  • Vitamin K is important for healthy blood clotting, antibiotics interfere by killing friendly bacteria in the large intestine, which is where production of vitamin K happens.

If you must take pharmaceutical grade antibiotics...There has been studies that states 

Vitamin C increases the absorption of certain antibiotics like trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole ( bactrium, cotrim, septra, Uroplus, etc...) which also helps those with cystic  fibrosis. 

Saccharomyces Boulardii - which is a harmless type of yeast that prevents diarrhea can be helpful.

As we all know one of the best potent antibiotics you have is good old fashion GARLIC.
