06 Jan Impact of Probiotics on Drug, Vitamin, and Hormone Metabolism
The purpose of this study is to find out if a probiotics supplement called Visbiome will speed up or slow down how quickly the intestine and liver break down some medications, vitamins and hormones. On two 13-hour study days, the participant will be given an intravenous and oral dose of midazolam and an oral dose acetaminophen. A stool sample and multiple blood and urine samples will be collected. In between the two drug study days, the participant will be given the probiotics supplement for 28 days.
