Can probiotics help prevent tummy bugs?

Hi, can taking a probiotic such as probiflora assist in prevention of tummy bugs when they are doing the rounds? A person at work who sits next to me insists on being at work while suffering from some tummy bug, and i CANNOT get sick right now. Will taking the probiotic help?
Thanks

Hi kv
Sorry about the delay in response, you have probably given up on me!
YES, a probiotic can definitely help to boost your body’s natural defences (immune system) and protect you against possibly contracting diarrhoea
