A number of health effects are associated with usage of probiotics.
When comparing probiotic products, look for a higher proportion of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli as they are are considered to denote a “healthier” composition of microbiota.
Because the health benefits of probiotics are strain-specific, probiotics within the same genus, or even species, do not necessarily provide the same benefits.
