In brief: Yogurt tastes better

These contain the "good organisms" living symbiotically with you.
Certain condition such as use of antibiotics often kill-off too many of these good bugs and leave us more susceptible to illness from other bad bugs. Probiotics basically replace some of the loss of the good bug and hopefully restore the balance. Both are safe, but yogurts taste better? And contain calciums/vitamins. Good luck.
