If you only use probiotics intermittently or for protection against developing diarrhea while travelling, this is an excellent choice, because the type it contains (Bifidobacterium longum) is not only well-tolerated (it is of human origin, and is one of the first types to take root in our large intestines as infants) and able to survive the digestive secretions (of gastric acid and bile) to actually make it to our colon intact, but also well-studied and clinically proven, and best of all, this particular form of it is shelf-stable -- it doesn't need refrigeration (so you can carry it in your bag and keep it in your hotel room) and has a long shelf life (so even if you only take it occasionally at home the remaining ones will keep their potency for a long time).
The BB536® process stabilizes the most sensitive bifido bacteria and guarantees bioactivity even when not refrigerated.

Bifidobacterium longum BB536® (whole cell): 5 billion colony forming units
