Hello,Actually there are many different dosage forms available such as capsules, tablets, and powders.And each probiotic supplement should come with a Colony Forming Units (CFU) count guarantee,You can recolonize the live good bacteria through the use of at least 2-5 billion per day, which is available in a products such as Culturelle.You should take one capsule of Culturelle Digestive a day.Also eat yogurt.Start a multivitamin.Hope this helps.
