Healthy gut for the whole family | Biogaia Probiotics Review

My hectic schedule at work requires me to be always on the go,  including traveling interstates frequently to attend conferences and meetings. I usually bring baby Bing and Yi with me. They love staying at hotels but this also means that we have frequent change in mealtimes and dietary choices.

This causes problems like indigestion and constipation. I often feel bloated, gassy, sometimes with heartburn and hard stools. Besides trying to consume more fruits and vegetables,  as well as water to help, I also find probiotics supplement useful.


Biogaia is a Swedish Healthcare company. It has a good track record in producing probiotic supplements for the past 30 years.  It's products are available in 100 countries.

Lactobacillus Reuteri Protectis is one of the good strains of bacteria, living in the digestive tract that helps to keep the bad germs at bay and to assist in the normal digestive process.  L.reuteri binds to the epithelial lining (inner skin) of the digestive tract which sheds every 4 days which means the bacteria also get washed away every week or so.  In order to keep a healthy level of L.reuteri in the gut, daily dose of probiotics is required. In Biogaia probiotic products, the bacteria is isolated from breastmilk. Biogaia Probiotic Supplements should be kept under 25 degrees celcius to make sure it lasts its shelf life.


Different strains of Biogaia L.Reuteri has been studied extensively in 203 clinical studies in 17,200 people of all ages of which 105 were done in children and 98 in adults. It has shown the effectiveness of probiotics in helping with gut problems like indigestion, constipation, colic, reflux, antibiotic associated diarrhoea and functional abdominal pain.  Many of these conditions can be difficult to treat and cause distress and impairment to function normally.

The most important is that L. reuteri supplements are safe as no serious side effects have been observed up to the maximum tested dosage of 10 billion CFU per day which is 1000 times the recommended daily dose. They also do not contain toxins or transferrable antibiotic resistance genes. Manufactured under controlled conditions, this ensures contamination does not occur. Biogaia Probiotics is also free from common allergens such as egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish and soy.

Biogaia Protectis Drops


These drops are suitable for use in newborn and young children. When taken at 5 drops a day, this consists of a minimum of 100 million live Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis. Remember to shake the drops for 10 seconds  to mix the bacteria with the oil before use.  This probiotics is useful to treat conditions such as colic. It can be extremely stressful to have a colicky baby in which I wrote about here.

Biogaia Protectis Tabs


These are lemon flavoured probiotic tablets at the same dose for adults. It's safe for expectant and breastfeeding mothers.  It also contains xylitol which is a sweetener used to make the tablets palatable. These tabs can be consumed for those aged 3 and above.

These are the potential benefits for consuming Biogaia Probiotics
-Infection protection
-Relieves Constipation, Functional abdominal pain , Diarrhea, Indigestion
-Boost immunity

What does Dr Yingzangel think?


I love the taste of these Biogaia probiotic tablets. Most importantly, now I feel much less bloated and am able to open my bowels almost everyday.  I feel confident in consuming it because it's safe for breastfeeding mothers like me. As for baby Yi, he is recovering from a viral gastroenterities in which these probiotic drops came just in time to relieve him of the uncomfortable stomach cramps and diarhhoea.

Please head on to Biogaia website to find out more about their products. If you buy online,  don't worry,  they only employ the nicest express delivery using ice box to maintain the  cold chain.
