Limosilactobacillus reuteri (formerly known as Lactobacillus reuteri) is a probiotic strain that has been tested in more than 150 human clinical studies (May 2020). Products containing this strain are for example BioGaia Protectis baby drops and BioGaia Protectis tabs. The scientific designation of L. reuteri Protectis is L. reuteri DSM 17938.
The spots are not dangerous and the product can still be used. BioGaia Protectis 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.
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.
