As part of the protocol after surgery, it is pretty automatic to be given antibiotics to prevent infection. Because the antibiotics destroy gut bacteria, it’s especially important to start taking a probiotic as soon as the antibiotic is finished.
From Garden of Life, Raw Probiotics 5 Day Max Care, it supplies 400 billion cells of 34 strains.
This brand is a max dose to kick start rebuilding your system. Taken every day for 5 days, it gives a mass infusion of healthy bacteria to make your gut work right again.
It was recommended by my daughter, and I think it gave me a big head start on restoring my healthy microbiome. After I finished the 5 day protocol, I began taking my usual probiotic again. And I’m pretty much back to normal, a speedy recovery and physical therapy going well, a knee that works without pain, and I’m feeling great!
