Our expert says:
Live probiotics are very difficult to keep stable, and, well, "alive". Thus most supplements contain either killed probiotics, which is not ideal, or live freeze-dried probiotics, which means the probiotic is dormant, but once re-exposed to moisture will become viable again, and if in the correct environment, such as within your intestines, it will survive and act as part of your gut flora. Look for supplements that state they contain live freeze-dried probiotics.
