Certain strains which contain bifidobacterium infantis may help alleviate symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating and irregular bowel movements. However, this remains a controversial area and the evidence is mixed. Also, don't get carried away with purchasing a super expensive brand name and 50 billion strains! Probiotics may help restore the balance between good and bad bacteria in the gut.
