Why BioGaia ProDentis?

BioGaia ProDentis is an oral food supplement for the mouth that contains the patented lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri Prodentis.

L. reuteri DSM 17938

L. reuteri DSM 17938 is a potent producer of reuterin that directly inhibits growth of pathogenic bacteria.

L. reuteri ATCC PTA 5289

L. reuteri ATCC PTA 5289 is selected for its exclusive properties of colonization in the oral cavity, fixation to mucins and biofilms and anti-inflammatory effects.
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.

Good stomach health begins with a balanced microflora….

What is microflora?

The microflora is a complex ecosystem of microorganisms within your gastrointestinal (GI) tract that includes both protective and harmful bacteria.

When in balance, the microflora supports your body’s digestive and immune systems.

Is a disrupted microflora bad?

Alterations in the stomach microflora have been linked with many common stomach conditions.

If the balance of the microflora is disrupted, the whole system can be thrown off.

…but our modern lifestyle with stress, use of antibiotics as well as poor eating habits can disrupt the microbial balance.


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.


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.

Less inflammation and fewer symptoms

Placebo-controlled studies in Helicobacter pylori infected patients have shown that Lactobacillus reuteri Gastrus:

  • Reduced both activity and severity of inflammation
  • Reduced symptoms of the infection
  • Reduced the most common side effects such as diarrhoea, nausea, abdominal and epigastric pain
  • Reduced the number of patients reporting side effects
L. reuteri also has an impact on the H. pylori histopathological features […] This would certainly reduce the risk of atrophic malignancies related to H. pylori in the long term.
