Final Thoughts

I hope this guide has helped you find the strongest probiotic yogurt. If you want to get the most probiotic strains it is probably best to go with a kefir type liquid yogurt. 

It's good to know there are vegan and Lacto-free options available as well and a lot of different yummy flavors. 

My final piece of advice would be, don't be scared to choose the wrong yogurt. All store bought yogurts will at least have some probiotic bacteria.

If you are looking to get something super strong then it is probably best to go with a probiotic supplement instead since they have higher CFU counts and in most cases more probiotic strains.
