A new study, conducted by researchers from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, suggests that a healthy diet may protect the gut microbiome from being destroyed by antibiotics.Healthy Diet May Protect Gut Microbiome from Antibiotics

For the purpose of the study the team treated three groups of mice with different antibiotics and monitored how bacteria in the mice digestion system changed.

When scientists added sugar to the mice’s diet, the sensitivity of these bacteria to amoxicillin increased. This means that antibiotics sensitivity can be modified with the help of diet changes.

Dr. Belenky, one of the authors of the study, says: “For a long time we've known that antibiotics impact the microbiome,' Dr Belenky said. 'We have also known that diet impacts the microbiome. This is the first paper that brings those two facts together.”
