Post Pro-Biotics Acidophilus

Can anyone tell me what Pro-Biotics are used for? I am bothered by a bloated stomach, so big I look pregnant. Someone told me Pro-Biotics would help this problem. Any input about this being true?

Probiotics have been showing more and more benefits from studies. The primary benefits are for the intestines, expecially the colon. Secondary benefits are improved systemic immunity, improved skin health.

Probiotics are very sensitive to being degraded or falsy labelled. Here are few brands that have been tested and shown to contain what's on the label:

Country Life® Hypoallergenic, Milk-Free Power-Dophilus™ Dietary Supplement
