Did you know that antibiotics can damage your gut bacteria for up to four years?1
A lot of people now know that antibiotics can do more harm than good. Of course, there are still times when we need and must take them, but doctors are already warning people that they may develop a tolerance for them if they are used too often.
Not only do we risk developing antibiotic resistance (where their infection-fighting effects stop working), but our gut microbiome can be significantly damaged by taking antibiotics. Antibiotics are so powerful that they wipe out trillions of microorganisms that live in our gut and influence our risk of infection, autoimmune diseases, cancer, heart disease, dementia, mood problems and much more.
Adio members can learn how to nourish and restore their gut microbiome and find ways to reverse any damage caused by taking antibiotics. We also show you alternatives to antibiotics (where appropriate) and the best foods to eat to protect your gut health and the health of your family and loved ones.
Adio is all about simple steps leading to big changes and repairing your gut bacteria is just one of the ways we show you how to transform your health.
