In BioGaia we are constantly working on improving our products. The Easydropper is a new delivery system for probiotic products. It has an improved drop function which facilitates the administration of the product and less environmental impact compared to glass bottles.
The name BioGaia is made up of two words, Bio and Gaia. Bio stands for life and living organisms, natural, biological research and ecological systems. Gaia, according to Greek mythology, is a goddess, the creator of all life, the sister of Eros and a personification of the Earth.
Clinical studies have shown that BioGaia Protectis drops are safe to give from day of birth.
The culture, which is used in the product, is fermented either on a skim milk or a barley based medium. Analytical data reveals milk protein, lactose and gluten in the culture. However, in the finished product neither milk protein nor lactose are detectable, and the gluten level is below EU limit value for Gluten free products according to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 828/2014 (<20 mg/kg). As allergen food labelling regulation may vary from country to country, local regulation has always to beconsidered when labelling this product.
Important: Always shake the bottle well before usage.
• Use 5 drops once daily.
• For easier dispensing, air UP vent on drop insert needs to be facing upward. Turn bottle to a 45° angle to slowly form the drops.
• We recommend to give the drops by spoon.
• Do not add to hot drink or food as this may damage the live bacteria.
Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis is a combination of two strains of Lactobacillus reuteri and is used in BioGaia’s oral health products lozenges and drops. It contains the two strains, Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 and Lactobacillus reuteri ATCC PTA 5289.
Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis is a strain of the species Lactobacillus reuteri that has been tested in more than 137 clinical trials in humans. It is used in products such as baby drops and chewable tablets. Its scientific designation is Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938.
The bacteria are in a dormant state and become activated and fully metabolically active when they come in contact with the saliva. By the time they reach the stomach they can start to colonize.
Based on the results of clinical studies, the dose level of 100 million CFU/day has been chosen as a safe and efficient dose for Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis. The corresponding dose for Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis and Gastrus is 200 million CFU/day.
The recommended daily dose of Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis is 100 million CFU (Colony Forming Units), or 10^8 CFU. You get this dose by consuming 1 BioGaia Protectis tablet, 1 BioGaia Protectis straw or 5 drops of BioGaia Protectis drops.
