Probiotics grounded in evolution,
driven by science
L. reuteri is one of few bacteria that has co-evolved with humans since the beginning of time, and because of that they are adapted to their host. L. reuteri is among the first bacterial species to become naturally established in the normal microbiota of the new-born.
L. reuteri species have been shown to naturally colonize humans and different species have been isolated from:
- Breast milk
- The vagina
- The mouth
- The stomach
- The small intestine
- The large intestine
All our commercial strains are of human origin, naturally colonise humans, and are therefore more likely to actually have a positive effect on human health. Even an indigenous bacterium like BioGaia’s L. reuteri Protectis should be taken on a regular basis, to reach high enough levels to achieve proper colonisation and have a good effect.
