How can probiotics help kidney stones?

Probiotic Benefits: Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are a condition where parts of the urine crystallize and form a stone. These can be incredibly painful and difficult to pass. One risk factor for development of kidney stones is a high level of oxalate in the urine. Studies have shown that probiotic supplements can be used to lower the level of oxalate. Probiotics are able to properly balance the gut flora, and handle the oxalate appropriately.

I read in Science News that only one of the several companies active bacteria supplements actually have the bacteria that break down oxalate. But I don't know which one does.
