FAQ

Does this need to be stored in fridge?

The product does not need to be stored in a fridge. However it should be stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight with temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius. Upon breaking of seal, this should be stored in a fridge though this is not prescribed by BioGaia.


Are probiotics safe for newborns?
Yes, BioGaia Protectis drops (with or without Vitamin D) are safe from day of birth. The recommended dosage is always 5 drops, regardless of age.


Are BioGaia products free from common allergens?
BioGaia products are free from allergens like milk, gluten, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy.


How should I give BioGaia Protectis drops?

  • The drops can be administered by using a spoon.
  • Put 5 drops on a (soft) plastic spoon and turn the spoon over in the mouth and sort of “dry” it off on the tongue of the baby.
  • They can also be mixed with cold or lukewarm food. Avoid hot food, since L. reuteri is sensitive to high temperatures.
  • Always shake the bottle well before usage.


Can the drops be added to formula milk?
Yes the drops can be mixed with breast milk and/or formula. The only thing to consider when adding the drops to liquids is the temperature. Do not add to liquids warmer than 37°C/99°F. If adding to liquids make sure to consume within the same day.


Can Protectis drops be used by patients that suffer from intolerance and/or allergy?
Biogaia Protectis drops can be used by patients suffering from milk protein allergy and / or are sensitive to lactose / gluten

  • A probiotic bacteria can be grown on different types of media
  • The L. reuteri Protectis culture used in BioGaia Protectis drops are grown on a barley based media, therefore, the drops do not contain lactose or milk protein
  • After production the bacteria are diluted in the product. Analytical data reveals gluten in the probiotic culture, however, in the finished product the gluten level is below EU limit value for gluten-free products.


What is Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis?
Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis is a strain of the species Lactobacillus reuteri that has been tested in more than 122 clinical trials (in humans). It is used in products such as drops and tablets. Its scientific designation is Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938.


Is Lactobacillus reuteri growing in the product?
No, the bacteria are in a dormant state and become activated and fully metabolically active when they come in contact with the saliva. This happens quickly, by the time they reach the stomach, they can start to colonize.


Should I refrain from combining BioGaia probiotic products with any specific medicines or drugs?
BioGaia probiotic products could be useful in combination with for example antibiotics as they contribute to keeping the balance in the gut microbiota. These products are considered to be food and are actually comparable to yoghurt when it comes to safety.


Should BioGaia probiotic products be taken with or without food?
The conditions under which Lactobacillus reuteri is taken are not critical. Hypothetically, the elevated pH shortly after the intake of food might have a positive impact on the survival of Lactobacillus reuteri, but it is more important that Lactobacillus reuteri is taken on a regular daily basis and at a time of the day that is suitable for the consumer.
