Should I take probiotics?
If you are on antibiotics, remember that they can diminish the good bacteria in your gut. After you finish your antibiotic course, taking probiotics or foods that contain probiotics, like yogurt & kombucha, can support your gut flora. You can also eat prebiotic containing foods
like apples, bananas, flax seeds, oats, onions, garlic, asparagus, and cocoa powder. Note: please do not blindly take probiotics if you are not on an antibiotic regimen. If you have any questions about whether a probiotic is good for you, send a question to your coach to clarify!
What else should I do?
You should only focus on recovery! That means keeping your stress low, drinking plenty of water, eating immune-boosting foods, getting enough sleep, and keeping intense physical activity minimal until you feel better. We know that being sick can feel like a death sentence when you're on a health & fitness journey, but the quicker you let your body heal, the quicker you can get back to the gym and feeling amazing!
