What is Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis?

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.

Is Lactobacillus reuteri growing in the product?

No, the bacteria are in a dormant state and become activated and fully metabolically active when they come in contact with the saliva. This happens quickly, by the time they reach the stomach, they can start to colonize.

Should I refrain from combining BioGaia probiotic products with any specific medicines or drugs?

BioGaia probiotic products could be useful in combination with for example antibiotics as they contribute to keeping the balance in the gut microbiota. These products are considered to be food and are actually comparable to yoghurt when it comes to safety.

What is the recommended dosage of BioGaia Prodentis?

The recommended daily dose of Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis is 200 million CFU, or 2 x 10^8 CFU. You get this dose by consuming 1 BioGaia Prodentis lozenge or 5 drops of BioGaia Prodentis drops.

Should BioGaia probiotic products be taken with or without food?

The conditions under which Lactobacillus reuteri is taken are not critical. Hypothetically, the elevated pH shortly after the intake of food might have a positive impact on the survival of Lactobacillus reuteri, but it is more important that Lactobacillus reuteri is taken on a regular daily basis and at a time of the day that is suitable for the consumer.

Do I need to take Lactobacillus reuteri every day?

Yes, since the intestinal levels are depleted within about a week after discontinuing use. The resident microbiota of an individual is relatively fixed and thereby highly resistant to the establishment of “newcomers”. Even an indigenous bacterium like Lactobacillus reuteri should be taken on a regular basis, since most people of modern society does not get colonized by Lactobacillus reuteri during infancy. By taking BioGaia probiotics regularly you maintain the total daily supply of lactobacilli.

How long does it take before I notice the effects of taking Lactobacillus reuteri?

It is hard to give a more precise answer as each human and the gut microbiota is unique. Please contact a health care professional for advice.
