What should I look for in a probiotic?

As you know, there are a plethora to choose from. There are some problems that need particular types, like for example, do you need to repopulate the gut after antibiotics, or do you need to get rid of a yeast infection? This is a run-down on the different lactobacilli species, and what they can do for you, with recommendations on what can help with what condition.

Keep in mind that although probiotics are great, they only contain a couple of varieties of good microbes, and cannot compete both in terms of bacteria count and varieties compared to fermented foods. If you really have any interest in maintaining your bacterial balance, you need to learn how to love ferments, and make your own at home for not much money.
