Stonyfield yogurt uses a live culture blend of probiotics, which includes Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus, Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus. These probiotics aid the digestive tract.
Probiotics found in yogurt assist in regularity and help the intestines to become an inhospitable environment to unhealthy bacteria. Regular consumption can also decrease lactose intolerance symptoms and relieve irritable bowel disease. Stonyfield yogurt is also certified organic by USDA standards, meaning no pesticides, antibiotics, or chemicals are used in the making of the yogurt. Other brands that contain probiotics, though not as many as Stonyfield, are Yoplait and Activa, a Dannon brand.
