Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy and they provide all sorts of powerful benefits for your body and brain “

When I think of probiotics, it takes me straight back to my younger days. My mom would nag me to take one whenever I was sick and being treated with antibiotics. As a mom myself now, and after much time spent doing my own research, I can appreciate her eagerness in ensuring I always did. Being a mom to three adventurous little people means we have come into contact with a fair share of bugs and illnesses over the years, and there is one brand of probiotics we have grown to love and trust, especially when treating these illnesses with antibiotics!

Reuterina, our favorite probiotic is celebrating 21 years, and to mark the occasion I thought we would share 21 reasons why we love Reuterina probiotics. 

  1. It helps with baby colic. I have used Reuterina with my last two babies and noticed a huge difference in their overall digestive and gut health.
  2. It helps maintain a healthy gut in infants, children and adults, all year round.
  3. It assists with a healthy gut during courses antibiotics used to treat infections.
  4. It also helps reduce side-effects associated with antibiotic use in children, including diarrhoea.
  5. The chewable tablets are easy to administer to kids, and my kids love the different flavors!
