Probiotic gut health
Reuflor D3 800 is a food supplement containing the patented lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis®/™ (L. reuteri DSM 17938) that helps the good microorganisms restore a natural balance in the gut. Because L. reuteriProtectis naturally colonizes humans it has a strong adaptation to persist and interact with humans. L. reuteri Protectis has been tested in more than 130 clinical trials and proven effective and safe for children and adults. An adequate dietary intake of vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system, maintenance of normal muscle function and normal bones in the general population.

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.
