BioGaia Protectis ORS
Probiotic baby and child care
Probiotic Oral Rehydration Solution The patented lactic acid bacterium L. reuteri Protectis helps the good microorganisms keep a natural balance in the gut. Because L. reuteri Protectis naturally colonizes humans it has a strong adaptation to persist and interact with humans. Suitable for infants and children.
Preparation: Stir 1 sachet into 250 ml water. Boil the water if you are not sure of the water quality or use bottled water. Boiled water should be cooled before adding the BioGaia Protectis ORS as hot water may damage the live bacteria. When the product is mixed it should be consumed within 6 hours when stored in refrigerator (max 4 °C/39 °F) and within 3 hours when stored in room temperature (max 25 °C/77 °F).
Important: Always use the volume of water stated. If the product is not mixed with enough water, the body will receive too much salt, which can be dangerous.
Always contact your child health center or doctor if the child seems abnormally tired, does not want to drink or is not urinating.
Storage: Store in a dry place, not above room temperature (max 25 °C/77 °F). Keep out of reach of children.
Important information when buying BioGaia’s products on the Internet: The live bacteria in BioGaia’s products are sensitive to high temperatures and humidity. Improper handling or transportation may reduce the quality and result in a shorter shelf-life and at worst a product without effect. When purchasing a product on the Internet make sure that it is through an authorized channel. BioGaia cannot guarantee the quality of the product unless the delivery is through a sales channel controlled by BioGaia or its authorized local distributors.

BioGaia Protectis bady drops should not be stored in the freezer. In the freezer the oil suspension will solidify, and the probiotic bacteria will be exposed to water. This process is severely shortening the shelf-life of the product.

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 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.
In most cases our partners are responsible for shipping our products and we provide them with our recommendation. If we are responsible, we have always cold transport for our finished products, even those who can handle 25°C.
We can only guarantee the quality of the product when the delivery is through a sales channel controlled by BioGaia or our authorized local distributors. However, some of our distribution partners offers online sale.

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.
