What is BioGaia?

Recommended by pediatricians, BioGaia is the proven solution to soothe colicky babies. BioGaia has been clinically shown to reduce excessive crying and fussing and improve family quality of life.*

What is Colic?

Infantile colic is a common condition that is frustrating for parents and caregivers. Colicky babies have long periods of inconsolable crying and hard-to-calm behavior, but have no signs of failure to thrive. The fact that crying occurs for no apparent cause is one of the main reasons it is distressing and worrisome for parents. This type of crying typically peaks at approximately six weeks of life and ends around the fourth month.

26% of infants have colic, making the condition one of the most frequently cited reasons for visiting the pediatrician.

Colicky Babies Need More Good Bacteria

Why babies have colic is not fully understood, but studies have shown that babies with colic have lower counts of good bacteria as well as increased concentrations of harmful bacteria in their digestive tracts. This can cause all sorts of digestive problems, including colic.

The Solution – BioGaia Baby

BioGaia contains L. reuteri Protectis, a health-giving probiotic that naturally colonizes the digestive tract and is even found in the milk of breastfeeding mothers. By strengthening and reinforcing the good bacteria in a baby’s digestive tract, BioGaia promotes digestive comfort.*

BioGaia is the pediatrician-recommended solution for colic.* Many studies have shown BioGaia can reduce colicky symptoms including excessive crying and fussing.* In fact, BioGaia has even been shown to reduce the onset of colic when given preventively to babies for the first three months of life.* Give your baby a great start to life with BioGaia.

What is Lactobacillus reuteri?

BioGaia’s probiotic products with Lactobacillus reuteri are among the most scientifically well-documented probiotics in the world with regard to both efficacy and safety. To date the efficacy and safety of BioGaia’s different strains of L. reuteri have been documented in 203 clinical studies in 17,200 people of all ages.

Lactobacillus reuteri has shown result in 105 clinical studies in children, from newborns up to 18 years old, and 98 studies in adults. Probiotic strains that have been used in clinical trials are BioGaia Protectis (DSM 17938), BioGaia Gastrus (ATCC PTA 6475) and BioGaia Prodentis (ATCC PTA 52899. Results have been published in 180 papers in scientific journals (February 2019).

Safe for all ages

Safety has been proven in preterm babies, infants, children, healthy adults and immune compromised adults. No serious adverse effects have been observed up to the maximum tested dosage of 10 billion CFU per day, meaning 1000 times the recommended daily dose.

Lactobacillus reuteri is considered safe as it fulfills the following criteria

  • Human origin
  • Named and classified according to correct taxonomy
  • Manufactured under controlled conditions to eliminate contamination
  • Safety is evaluated and documented on target population
  • Harbors no toxins or transferrable antibiotic resistance genes

The origin of Lactobacillus reuteri

The first strain of Lactobacillus reuteri (L. reuteri) for human use, L. reuteri DSM 17938, was isolated in 1990 from the breast milk of a Peruvian mother living in the Andes. The commercial name is L. reuteri Protectis. Other human strains from BioGaia are L. reuteri ATCC PTA 5289 and ATCC PTA 6475. L. reuteri ATCC PTA 5289 used in oral health products was isolated from the oral cavity of a Japanese woman with remarkably good dental status and L. reuteri ATCC PTA 6475 was isolated from breast milk in Finland.

Bacteria of human origin

All our commercial strains are of human origin, naturally colonize humans, and are therefore more likely to actually have a positive effect on human health. Even an indigenous bacterium like BioGaia’s L. reuteri Protectis should be taken on a regular basis, to reach high enough levels to achieve proper colonization and have a good effect. L. reuteri has been found in: Breast milk The vagina The mouth The stomach The small intestine The large intestine Feces
