  • Clinical trials show that some probiotic effects are observed with specific strains but not in control strains. The strains compared were often members of different species or even genus. There is a tendency to believe that some extrapolation of results could be possible for microorganisms of the same species, and this is especially done by some companies selling products that were not studied and using studies performed with different strains. However, several studies compared the composition… CONTINUE READING
