I have searched the internet on probiotics and have found all different kinds for all different prices. Is there something I should look for when buying these or a certain brand name. I noticed some are yogurt chews, some are tablets, some are mixed with other meds.

Look into Culturelle. Lots of research behind it and of all the Probitiotics I've tried it was the only one that any kind of effect at all. On the 3rd day or so after you start taking it you may find yourself very gassy as your system adapts to it, but after that np problems.

I use the Primadophilus Rueteri with great success as well, it's affordable and only one/day is needed it also aids with lactose intolerance, high cholesterol and for women, vaginal health issues.

I highly recommend it, the only downside is it must be kept cold even where you purchase it they should have it stored in the fridge.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
