Significantly reduced crying time in infantile colic1
Fifty breastfed colicky infants were given either L. reuteri Protectis drops or placebo for 21 days. After only one week of treatment the daily crying time was reduced by 74 % in the group receiving probiotics. At the end of the study there was a significant difference in crying time between the groups, 35 minutes among those receiving L. reuteriProtectis compared to 90 minutes in the placebo group.
Improved feeding tolerance and gut function in preterm newborns2
Thirty preterm newborns were enrolled in this study; the first group was exclusively breast-fed, the second and third groupwere given formula with either L. reuteri Protectis drops or placebo drops. In the L. reuteri Protectis group, bowel movements were increased and the gastric emptying rate was improved by 51% compared to 26% in the formula-fed placebo group. Moreover, episodes of regurgitation were reduced by half and crying time was reduced by 64%.
