Perfectly safe: While 100 billion may sound like a lot, it is a tiny amount compared to the total number of bacteria that live in our intestines (which is about 100 trillion). You excrete far more than 100 billion bacteria in your stool each day. It is perfectly safe to take 100 billion probiotics every day.
