Has anyone tried probiotics? Do they really work or is it just another hype to sell products?

I use them daily, and no they aren't just another hyped product, at least not in my opinion. I use them in a few different ways, I use them in tablet form, and the kids take them, and we also drink Kombucha which has a probiotic property to it.

Prebiotics are foods that support the growth of probiotics. Sauerkraut, yogurt and cheese use the activities of these friendly bacteria in their creation. These foods supply not just probiotics but the food source for the good bacteria.
