How is Gastrus different from other probiotics?
Gastrus contains two patented strains of L. reuteri that work collectively to promote stomach health.*
Gastrus works in the stomach, while other probiotics work in the mid to lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract.*
L. reuteri is a powerful probiotic strain that promotes a healthy balance in the stomach.*
It is important to understand that there are many different probiotic strains. Experts believe that these different probiotic strains not only have various health benefits, but also target different parts of the GI tract.*
L. reuteri is an indigenous probiotic species whose natural habitat is the GI tract. L. reuteri has been tested in numerous clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective.*
Humans have an ancient symbiotic relationship with L. reuteri that is significant for health.*
20th Century: Studies show that the prevalence of L. reuteri was higher in the mid-twentieth century. In the 1960s and 1970s, researchers reported that L. reuteri was one of the most dominant lactobacilli in the human GI tract.
21st Century: Today, researchers have suggested that our modern lifestyle has disrupted this symbiotic relationship. The lower prevalence in humans in more recent studies suggests a reduction of the L. reuteri population size during the past 50 years.
Numerous studies have shown the health benefits of reinforcing the GI microbiota with L. reuteri.*
