this is somewhat of an ideological question. It all depends on your worldview and how probiotic supplements fit into that ideology. I personally think it is a boatload of crap. Others swear by these things. You should experiment with them and see which clique you fall in with.

My absolute favourite food containing probiotics is fermented sauerkraut. I eat it with every meal and notice a huge difference in digestion.

If you have good gut health, you can get a fair amount through food and you do not need to take the expensive drink.
