    If bacteria did not survive the stomach then humans would have absolutely no bacteria in their gut! Unless you run around sticking lots of things up the other end then it's all come in through your stomach to get there in the first place, and humans had gut bacteria long before the invention of rectal thermometers...

    I don't remember which specifically, but I searched and was really impressed with PB 8 at vitacost.com. check it out, and you can see the winners on there. variety is important. L. rhamnosus and L. Reuteri (not in PB 8) were two that i read about recently, very important for preventing gut infections of salmonella, rotavirus, and e. coli.

    the gut is colonized at birth and different populations increase/decrease based on what you eat. obviously it's more complex than that, but there's the start. some studies are showing that specific bacteria make it through the stomach and colonize the upper intestine without special coating on the pills.

    The one bit of takeaway advice from what I have read about probiotics is to get the refrigerated kind. Chances are that room temperature supplements will be inactive and ineffective.

    I've found some great info on this site

    Cooling Inflammation

    And it seems to confirm that a lot of bacteria do make it through the stomach....

    The kind I got said specifically on the package that it does not need refrigeration and therefore is good for traveling. Do you remember sea monkeys? They were like dehydrated little brine shrimp. Add water and they came to life. I think it's quite possible to do the same with bacteria.

    I hatch brine shrimp all the time for my reef... they do fine.

    Some bacteria can create spores and encapsulate themselves and travel through the vacuum of space just fine... never doubt the bacteria!

    Doesn't yogurt, even the pasteurized variety, have bacteria?

    This may be an off the wall question but why don't they make probiotic suppositories? I know they're doing research on fecal implants...just a thought, it would be more direct and avoid the stomach.
