In brief: Depends

If you are using it for bowel regularity, any yogurt with active cultures will do well.
If you are doing it to supplement clostridium difficile treatment, the two options are lactobacillus or saccharomyces cerevisiae - you doctor can prescribe them. The main contraindication to either is if you have an impaired immune system.
