Sub-analyses of selected samples with active probiotic growth does not reveal impact on gut microbiota community structure. a-b Estimates of in situ growth of a BB-12® and b LGG® expressed as the ratio of excreted CFUs/day (excretion) to ingested CFUs/day (input) for all samples within the probiotics group. Means and medians are represented by dashed lines. c-d PCoA plots of weighted UniFrac distances of the gut microbiota in samples with detected growth of c BB-12® and d LGG® (orange) as compared to placebo (blue) intervention
