Probiotic of Choice: I often recommend Jarrow due to it's quality and the fact it doesn't need refrigeration.

The best!: The qualities of a good probiotic are the number of good bacteria per capsule and the number of species of good bacteria! 10 billion with ten strains is what to try for! Would be hard to overdose. Some have 50 billion good bacteria, but you pay for it!
