The main difference between Protectis and Gastrus is that they contain different probiotic L. reuteri strains, or combinations of L. reuteri probiotic strains.
- Protectis contains L. reuteri DSM 17938
- Gastrus contains L. reuteri DSM 17938 and L. reuteri ATCC PTA 6475
All BioGaia’s probiotic products have been tested in clinical studies and found safe and effective.
All BioGaia’s probiotic L. reuteri strains have been shown to survive in the human gastrointestinal tract and to temporarily colonise the small intestine. They have also been shown to have a positive effect on the microbiota composition.
Since every gastrointestinal tract is unique some individuals might experience a temporary change in gut motility. BioGaia probiotics very rarely cause side effects in the amounts recommended for the products. Some individuals might experience gas (flatulence), but that generally disappears after a few days. No serious adverse effects have been observed in clinical trials up to the maximum tested dosage of 10 billion CFU per day.
