While the research shows some possible promise to the efficacy of oral probiotics, it also shows the jury is still out and more research is needed. I tend to err on the side of what research shows, so I haven’t yet recommended oral probiotics. Here are some studies that you may find helpful in whether you want to recommend them or not:
