What are the brownish dots that sometimes occure on the tablets?

The spots are not dangerous and the product can still be used. BioGaia tablets contains ascorbic acid, which is an antioxidant that contributes to the stability of the tablets. Over time the ascorbic acid oxidizes and the color becomes darker. This darkening is seen as small “spots” on the tablet.

Is single strain or multi-strain probiotic products better?

Products that contain several strains do not necessarily have better effect than single strain products. Most important is that the strain or strains have shown clinical efficacy in clinical studies.

What is Lactobacillus reuteri?

Lactobacillus reuteri is a probiotic strain that has co-evolved with humans since the beginning of time, and because of that it is adapted to its host. L. reuteri is among the first bacterial species to become naturally established in the normal microbiota of the newborn.

BioGaia’s probiotic products with L. reuteri are among the most scientifically well-documented probiotics in the world with regard to both efficacy and safety. To date the efficacy and safety of BioGaia’s different strains of L. reuteri have been documented in 184 clinical studies in 15,500 people of all ages. Results have been published in 159 papers in scientific journals (February 2018).

Can I still use BioGaia Protectis drops or tabs if they have been exposed to temperatures over 25 °C / 77 °F?

Exposure to high temperatures and/or high humidity accelerates the degradation of the probiotic bacteria. If exposure is too long it will result in a shorter shelf-life of the product, but the product is still safe to use.

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.
