WHY CHOOSE REUTERINA®?

To be widely used, a probiotic must be safe. Lactobacillus reuteri strain DSM17938 (the bacteria contained in Reuterina®) was originally isolated from human milk and is a natural coloniser of both the stomach and the small intestine2,4.

Lactobacilli are generally regarded as non-pathogenic (do not cause infection), because they occur naturally in the intestine4.

Reuterina® has a role to play in the prevention and treatment of a variety of disorders, associated with an imbalance of flora, such as5-20;

    • Functional gastrointestinal disorders (colic, regurgitation, constipation and abdominal pain)
    • Acute gastroenteritis (infection)
    • Antibiotic associated diarrhoea
    • Infection protection via immune modulation in the gut

Reuterina® has been clinically validated in over 200 clinical trials21.

Reuterina® contains live freeze-dried bacteria, the content and viability of which is guaranteed until expiry. These bacterial strains are isolated from human origin with well-documented safety and stability in humans22-26.

WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?

Probiotics are viable (“live”) non-pathogenic bacteria that colonise the intestine and modify the intestinal microflora. By modulating the gut microbiota, probiotics have the ability to exert health-promoting activities beneficial for the host1,3.

I was introduced to Reuterina™ when I became a first mom 5 years ago. Ever since then, I’ve made sure that there is always one available in my medicine cabinet.
