Pro-Bio Defense is Kirkman's "combination probiotic" that provides the six certified strains in Kirkman's popular Pro-Bio Gold, including the certified strain Lactobacillus plantarum, a resident strain in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which is extremely resistant to the stresses of the intestinal environment. Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii), a special strain of yeast with probiotic capabilities is also included.
S. boulardii is considered a non-pathogenic, non-colonizing baker's yeast species, which is very closely related to brewer's yeast also known as S. cerevisiae. Although it is a "yeast," it is not related to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalas, etc.), which can cause pathogenic infections in the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.
Pro-Bio Defense contains the most important "resident" and "transient" microorganisms that contribute to maintaining and promoting a healthy GI tract, with the added capabilities of the Saccharomyces boulardii strain, which is known to be effective when used alone or in combination with other probiotics to support digestion.
Take one capsule daily or as directed by a physician. For intensive use take two capsules daily and divide dose. For children under 30 pounds take one half of the suggested dose.
Stabilized probiotic strains, saccharomyces boulardii, inulin, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate (vegetable) plant cellulose capsule.
Free of: Sugar, soy, wheat, casein, gluten, milk, corn, egg, preservatives, gelatin, artificial flavorings or colors, peanuts, tree nuts or fish.

I really like this product. I feel better when I'm taking it. Kirkman is a great brand !
Good balance between cleaners and residents probiotics. But the amount of each strains is not enough. Two or three capsules at each time worked for my son.
