Our expert says:
Probiotic health benefits are strain specific. This means that if 1 strain is proven to be effective in scientific studies there is no reason to give more strains or different products.
For example if you take an antibiotic for a chest infection, lets say Amoxycillin; you would not think “I better also give Clarithromycin”, because Amoxycillin has been shown to work on its own.
In the same way Reuteri is 1 strain of probiotic which is amongst the best in the world as it has been most extensively scientifically studied and is proven to work.
This is why I recommend it and I would suggest that all your son needs is 1 Reuteri Chew tablet daily. Chew tablets are cheaper than drops and easier to administer.

Now to address your other questions:
- There is some thinking that a probiotic dose can be increased if a patient is suffering from bad diarrhoea. So for example for 2-3 days you would take Reuteri Chew tabs twice daily instead of once daily.
- No, it is not really possible to overdose, but mega doses have not shown significantly better effects. More is not necessarily better, quite the opposite sometimes. If taking 1 a day works why would you want to take 3 a day?
- Reuteri chew tabs – 1 daily = safe, scientifically proven, easy to remember because only 1 daily, cost effective and tastes good.
