STOCKHOLM - Tuesday, January 14th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) A study of 468 healthy newborns shows that infants given the probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis cried less than half as long as infants given a placebo. The infants given Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis also had significantly fewer daily regurgitations and were less constipated compared to infants in the placebo group. As a result, the use of Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis proved to be cost saving for both parents and the community.

 "This is the first study proving prophylactic use of a specific strain (L. reuteri Protectis) in a condition like functional gastrointestinal disorders (colic, regurgitation and constipation). Moreover this is also the first evaluation of the cost/benefit for a probiotic therapy in infants and it shows that L. reuteri Protectis is valuable for the family and for the society,” says Doctor Flavia Indrio, MD, Department of Paediatrics, University of Bari, Italy.
