When a bacterial infection strikes your gut, it can do major damage to the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria in your stomach. This good bacteria is largely responsible for your nutritional absorption, and therefore, your overall health. Probiotics can help to replace or supplement the existing bacteria in your gut and restore a healthy microflora environment. Probiotics can be found in many different foods, most notably yogurt, dark chocolate, pickles, and sauerkraut, among others. If you use strong antibiotics for a Helicobacter pylori infection, you will also need probiotics to replace the “good” bacteria those antibiotics wiped out.
