Symbioflor-2 is an E. coli (Escherichia coli) probiotic that contains six strains of E. coli.
There is some evidence for its use in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.
It has been shown to induce production of human beta-defensin (hBD), a peptide that plays a role in intestinal barrier function.
