Explain how prebiotics and probiotics work?
Probiotics are supplements of bacteria that is good for the GI tract (so called "good bacteria"). A common formula of probiotics is called PB-8. There are many formulas of probiotics. Each formula has a different strain or strains of bacteria that is known to be "good." By "good" they mean that these bacteria are either helpful in digestion OR they cause the "bad" bacteria to be less in number.
Asked in Microbiology
Can you get too much probiotics?
When a large amount of probiotics are introduced into the GI system the bad bacteria makes up for it by growing and colonizing so it is not taken over by the good bacteria. Some probiotics can stop the bad bacteria from growing and colonizing while introducing a large quantity of good bacteria into the system.

Can you take probiotics with antibiotics?
Taking probiotics will not negatively affect the effectiveness of the antibiotic regiment, nor will it make you more sick unless you are allergic to an ingredient in the probiotics (some people react to the binding agents or fillers). BUT, it will waste your probiotics! First, it is importanat to understand what probiotics are. Usually they are a supplement filled with billions of dried-out bacteria or bacterial spores that have been found to be good for your gastrointestinal tract. These can be in capsule form, or food form (yogurt is a great example). Next, it is important to understand what antibiotics are. Antibiotics are a drug that is designed to kill bacteria. Although they are meant to help your body fight unwanted bacteria (those making you sick), unfortunately, the antibiotics will also kill important good bacteria in your body. Thus, the idea behind taking probiotics following antibiotics is ...kill everything with the antibiotics first, then replace some of the good bacteria with probiotics. You cant replace all the good bacteria, as we dont even know every type of bacteria that lives in us and are important for us, but we can replace some that we know are good. If you are taking the probiotics with the antibiotics you will just be killing the new good bacteria as fast as you take them...it is a waste. Save the probiotics until a couple days after you have finished your antibiotic regiment so your body can get rid of all the antibiotics before you try to introduce new good bacteria.

Are antibiotics and probiotics the same?
No; in fact, as may be inferred from the prefixes, they are opposites. Antibiotics are chemical compounds that are used to kill microorganisms, whereas probiotics are "friendly" microorganisms introduced into the body to out-compete "bad" microorganisms. They are typically given in concert with antibiotics to prevent the body's healthy complement of gut flora (the bacteria and other microbes in your digestive tract) from being eradicated by the antibiotics, which were administered to kill off some harmful beasties but can also kill the ones that belong in your body. No. Antibotics are medications that kill bacteria. probiotics ar the GOOD bacteria that you want in your (mostly intestinal) system.
