    It's impossible to remove the gut bacteria in any case, not with antibiotics or anything short of living your whole life in a sterile bubble. Here's some food for thought:
    Mice bred in sterile environments without these "gut flora" were seen to be more adventurous and less anxious than mice with normal gut flora.

    Potato starch is probably the best kind of starch.

    Some strains no doubt produce acetate, and you might be promoting those selectively by drinking vinegar.
    I don't know the specific strains that produce acetic acid, but some do exist in the human gut.
