The Probiotic you need if you are on antibiotics, tube feedings....

All probiotics are not created equal.  Many probiotics are good for preventing urinary tract infections, keeping a healthy gut under no duress, and preventing vaginal infections from an unbalanced ph but while on antibiotics, in cases of sever diarrhea, c.diff. treatment or while getting nutrition through tube feedings, the probiotic sacharomyces boulardii is the probiotic of choice.  Other probiotics cannot withstand the effects of antibiotics and are partially or completely destroyed under antibiotic or antifungal treatment.  Saccharomyces boulardii is not destroyed by antibiotic or antifungal treatments.  This probiotic will keep the "good bacteria" of the body replenished while keeping the "bad bacteria" to a minimum while the body undergoes treatment or tube feedings.  Keeping these bacteria balanced is vital so that thrush, yeast infections, chronic diarrhea and susceptibility to c.diff are kept in check while undergoing antibiotic or antifungal regimes.  Taking probiotics right before bedtime is the most efficient method, allowing the gut time to digest and absorb the probiotic.  Eating a quality yogurt in conjunction is also recommended.
