They’re able to make life harder for pathogens in a number of ways, from outright killing them to making it harder for them to attach to the intestinal lining. Every strain acts slightly differently. They’re kind of like advanced anti-fungals that can improve bowel health, so it makes sense to utilise them. This post explains why whether or not they permanently colonise is a bit of a moot point: http://coolinginflammation.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/dr-oz-on-gut-flora-repair.html
