Tackling Antibiotic Resistance: The Role of Gut Health

November 13, 20231 min read

As the world's leading consumers of antibiotics, Americans face a growing threat—antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Widespread antibiotic use creates a breeding ground for resistance, as microbes with genetic traits for resistance can proliferate and transfer these traits to susceptible microbes through lateral gene transfer.

This alarming trend has led to people succumbing to bacterial infections due to antibiotic resistance. In response, scientists engage in an ongoing battle to create new antibiotics, staying one step ahead of evolving superbugs.

To contribute to the fight against antibiotic resistance, focus on building a diverse gut microbiota. Embrace prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods to support a robust immune system and minimize the need for antibiotics.
