Probiotics means “for life” in contrast to antibiotics this means that “against life”. Important criteria for qualifying as a probiotic are thus that the microbes are alive and have proven health effects in clinical trials. A probiotic product will have to contain the same bacterial strain (or strains) and the same dose that was used in the clinical trials. The most common types of microbes used as probiotics are lactic acid bacteria, like Lactobacillus reuteri, and bifidobacteria. Lactobacillus reuteri is one of very few probiotic species whose natural habitat is the digestive tract and it is therefore especially well adapted to thrive in this sort of environment. Typically Lactobacillus reuteri is without doubt one of the first bacterial species to develop into naturally established in the gastrointestinal tract of the newborn, on the other hand in modern society only very few individuals are exposed to sufficient numbers to get colonised. Lactobacillus reuteri is among the most scientifically well-documented probiotics with regard to both efficacy and safety. Lactobacillus reuteri produces the antimicrobial substance reuterin, which inhibits the growth of several pathogenic microorganisms. At the same time, Lactobacillus reuteri supports the populations of other bacteria, which are part of the normal intestinal microbiota.
