The higher the bacteria count the more likely you'll get enough to stay in your colon and start to do some good. I forget the exact numbers, but with each BM you have you lose something like a million or a billion bacteria. So, you have to keep replenishing them to keep the bacteria in balance.I've always been told to take probiotics with at least 5 billion active per capsule. And the broader range of different bacterias the better.
