I can't recommend a good probiotic drink but VSL 3 or Femdophillus are excellent probiotics". You need to keep them in the fridge.

VSL3 is a very potent probiotic. Has to be refrigerated and very expensive. Some gastros do prescribe it on NHS.  However, for anyone that is gluten sensitive i.e. has NCGS (Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity) or Coeliac it is worth knowing that it is cultured on gluten. This is a real blow to a lot of people because although it is a very tiny amount of residue of gluten left in the final product it can still cause a lot of problems for some people.

I am not really sure why the manufacturers of this product continue to use gluten as a growing base as so many people cannot take it.

VSL-3 is the daddy of probiotics....they are updating the packaging to reflect that it is indeed gluten free, less than 20PPM gluten so is fine for celiacs.
