There is always bacteria in our intestines. Billions or trillions to be exact. They are always there. So the probiotics replace the bad bacteria with the good. They basically create a better flora in our intestines which can allow us to heal better since Uc'ers tend to have too much bad bacteria. I'm sure some of the bacteria passes in the stool but I don't think it's enough to defeat the purpose of probiotics.
