How Well do you Know Probiotics? – Interactive Quiz

Probiotics are Increasingly Being Used in Practice

I recently ran into my good friend Dragana Sunjic and her colleague Catherine Mulvale at a conference.  If you have never heard Dragana present on probiotics, I would strongly encourage you to do so.  Dragana was instrumental in the development of the Probiotic guide.

The Clinical Guide to Probiotic Products (the Guide) is a tool designed to translate the scientific evidence available for probiotic products into practical, easy-to-access and understand, clinically relevant information.  It is produced by the Alliance for Education on Probiotics (AEProbio) an independent organization that exists to establish probiotics as a front-line therapy for the protection, restoration and enhancement of human health. The Alliance provides an unbiased review and summary of the scientific evidence on the safety and efficacy of specific probiotic products.

  • The Probiotic Guide App can be download for FREE from iTunes or Google Play.
  • Printed and PDF versions are also available by request.
  • For more information about the Guide or AEProbio, please visit:

If you ever have a question on probiotics, I would strongly encourage you to review the website.  Catherine and Dragana created a quiz to see how well you know probiotics.  We hope you like it.

  1. I got 11 out of 12 and I’m not even a pharmacist. Have to thank Dragana Skokovic-Sunjic for my probiotic knowledge.
