A LOT of people have asked if antibiotics decrease the
effectiveness of Super Shield, and probiotics in general.
The real answer is that when you take an antibiotic,
taking a strong probiotic is a must, not a should.
To know why, you need to know some things about antibiotics:
The introduction of antibiotics (specifically penicillin)
in the early 1900's was an important turning point in
health care. Infections that could turn fatal suddenly
became treatable and countless lives were saved. Many of
us would not be alive today if it weren't for antibiotics.
But there's the old saying that too much of a good thing
is NOT good for you. And antibiotics are no exception.
Antibiotics (meaning "against life") kill not only the bad
disease-causing bacteria inside of you, but also the good
This is bad because it throws your intestinal flora
balance completely out of whack and encourages the bad
bacteria to overcome the good.
That causes diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea and for women,
Think about it--how many times have you taken antibiotics
and gotten a raging upset stomach or diarrhea from them?
That was your bad bacteria in action.
And if this gut imbalance goes on long enough, it can lead
to a weakened immune system, leaky gut syndrome and
autoimmune disorders like Crohn's.
What makes this whole issue worse is that antibiotics have
been overprescribed like crazy.
For example, a lot of well-meaning but mistaken doctors
have prescribed antibiotics for cold-like symptoms without
even being sure of the presence of an infection...a "just
in case" measure.
That creates antibiotic resistance. So next time you have
an infection, you'll need a stronger antibiotic because
you're immune to the milder one.
Stronger antibiotics means more good bacteria are
destroyed...and a more serious flora imbalance in your gut.
Many people take antibiotics every single DAY. Here are
* Kids with chronic ear infections have been given
antibiotics as a daily preventive treatment, "just in case."
* Antibiotic creams are a common treatment for skin
conditions--and you're instructed to use them every single
* If you eat meat, poultry, fish and dairy products, you're
getting antibiotics in every single mouthful.
Seems like antibiotics and their effects are inescapable.
But I have some very good news.
Blue Rock Holistics' Super Shield can help you fight the
effects of antibiotics and regain balance to your
Super Shield contains the super strain Lactobacillus
acidophilus DDS-1, which is not harmed by antibiotics
like many ordinary probiotic strains.
That means that, no matter what you take antibiotics for,
you can continue to take Super Shield.
The antibiotics will still kill the infection (and your
good bacteria, too).
At the same time, Super Shield's L-acidophilus DDS-1 will
prevent or minimize the diarrhea and stomach upset, and
will help the good bacteria multiply in your gut.
Let's face it, antibiotics are all around us, ready to
throw off your intestinal flora balance and make you
That's why you need Super Shield to maintain that crucial
balance every single day...and keep you feeling GREAT.
