Are the probiotics that can help urinary health different from the probiotics used for the intestinal tract health?

Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer.

Probiotics are simply microorganisms or “good bacteria” that is used to help fight off infections which is used as an alternative to anti-biotics.
I am not sure if you were talking probiotics are not the same thing as prebiotics—nondigestible food ingredients that selectively stimulate the growth and/or activity of beneficial microorganisms already in people's colons. When probiotics and prebiotics are mixed together, they form a synbiotic.
Perhaps this helps with the understanding? If you have additional questions, please feel free to ask.
