The high probiotic content of Sauerkraut

So, sauerkraut has, according to testing carried out by Dr. Mercola, a very high probiotic content (see links). My question is if these beneficial bacteria really survive to where they are supposed to go? I know that probiotic capsules such as Prescript Assist and others have measured that they indeed do reach their intended destination (the colon). Anyone knows if this has been done with saurkraut, or if it is reasonable to assume that it does?

Most bacteria die in the stomach. But some make the trip, specially those imbedded in the kraut. More will make it if the eater has low stomach acidity. They then go on to populate the intestine under favorable conditions.
