Probiotics means "for life" in contrast to antibiotics which means "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 must 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 kind of environment. Generally Lactobacillus reuteri is among the first bacterial species to become naturally established in the gastrointestinal tract of the newborn, however in modern society only very few individuals are exposed to sufficient numbers to get colonised. Lactobacillus reuteri is one of 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.
