In Europe they do not allow the advertising of probiotics, food that contains live bacteria that is supposedly good for digestion. The reason is that they do not work. Your stomach acid kills almost all bacteria in food you consume. There are some compounds that encase the bacteria in substances that resist the acid and allow the bacteria to get into your intestines alive. Still there are no unbiased studies that show any benefits from this stuff. Unless you own stock in the companies that make it.
