What are probiotics?
Probiotics are good bacteria that are found in food or supplements. The definition is ”Live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” (WHO/FAO, 2002)
Important criteria for qualifying as a true probiotic is that health benefits should be proven in clinical trials. Furthermore, a probiotic product must contain the same bacterial strain(s) and the same dose that was used in the clinical trials.
Probiotics grounded in evolution Driven by science
Lactobacillus 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.
BioGaia is an innovative Swedish health care company and a world leader in probiotics.
To date, 184 clinical studies using BioGaia’s human strains of L. reuteri have been performed on 15,500 individuals of all ages (February 2018).
