I've heard it's good to take a probiotic supplement after taking antibiotics. What should I look for in a supplement & how long should it be taken?

In brief: Good to take!

Better to take capsules with high count bacteria (10 billion of more), and ones with more strains of good bacteria (B10- or more).
More convenient and better than drinks. Save your money!

In brief: Probiotic

Megafood Megaflora Plus is a good probiotic.
Take 2 caps daily for a month if you have taken antibiotics recently.
