Hi Norm – in regards to probiotics, which bacteria are supposed to be in the small intestine? Which ones are not?

Which ones are doing all of the bad fermenting in the small intestine? (don’t want a probiotic with those in it)

One company states that its probiotic coating survives the small intestine too, and delivers all of the bacteria to the large intestine. Others have a gel matrix that slowly releases the bacteria as it moves along the digestive tract, some have a gelatin capsule that dissolves after stomach and dumps the bacteria all at once.

Do digestive enzymes dissolve these capsules/tablets/pearls too quickly?
