When replenishing good bacteria during/after antibiotics, which is better -- probiotic supplements or increasing intake of yogurt, kefir, etc.?

Little difference: Probiotics have had a lot of good press in recent years, but scientific proof behind them is weak. Yogurt or kefir probably will have no effect; theie bacteria do not survive in human intestines. None of these will do any harm; use whatever works best for you.
